What gear do you wear while riding? in Bikes Posted November 5, 2010 The only difference is that I don't have that wank-factor, cafe-yuppie attitude and ignorance that most scooter riders have. I don't like scooter riders much. They're not even licenced motorcyclists, being able to ride those 'things' with a car licence, yet they're a motorcycle statistic in the event of an accident. Its these inexperienced and untrained idiots that inflate motorcycle statistics. I've seen these fools do the most stupidest things in traffic, thinking they're invincible because they're part of some exclusive club. Yet they wear no gear! (end rant) I love seeing the girls in their safety stockings and kevlar suit jackets. Oh wait... open face helmets.... *cringe* You have to do the same L plate course as a motorcyclist here to ride a scooter, its like learning in an automatic car, you get a mark on your license indicating SCOOTER ONLY.
