I've got my M2, and rode since March. Drove many many times on the highway. it also depends what bike you ride. Cruiser is always safer. Yes, gear IS important. Yes, I realize now at a closer look those gloves would shred. I thought it was just leather..
What bike do you ride? BTW, I'm 17, and ride a 06 750 Shadow Aero Touring.
You mean you ride your dads 06 750 shadow. I've seen you on gtamotorcycles too. I don't think there's a mm of leather on those gloves. They're cheap nylon kinda material. Might as well wear those shitty stretchy gloves we all wore in elementary school.
And the statement "cruisers are always safer" makes you sound incredibly stupid (no offence). Going down on ANY motorcycle is dangerous. The average cruiser is heavier than the average sport bike, so I'd probably say it's MORE dangerous!
As for me, right now I'm riding a 97 Kawasaki Ninja 250. Wanted a project bike to build and they're cheap so i said why not. Besides, after having my SV650 totalled by a drunk driver, insurance blamed ME, they're now raping me a new ass hole on my insurance. So I can't afford anything bigger. Searching for another SV650 for next season.
