ATGATT - any limitations
« on: February 25, 2008, 05:21:50 pm »
Can one take ATGATT to far?  Is there a limit one can set and still be reasonable safe and protected?  What do you consider to be the absolute minimum and when is it just to much?

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

I don't want to be inside that helmet during a crash :o
Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.

2. Goggles
3. Gloves
4. Padded Jacket

When all your kit is black and your are stuck in the desert with a temp. of 50 degrees. ;D

Guys... protect the legs too! In a crash it is your head and legs that usually take the biggest beating... trust me I have experience in this! :-)

Wait 'till Beemerman sees that chrome......he's going to want one of those suits, should need about 3kg of Autosol to maintain that shine.... ;D ;D
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Ah! I see my name is called good Sir!!, I am about to lay my hands on a new product which I am told makes Autosol look like grinding paste!, I should have some in my grubby paws to-day, and will report. ;D
I think if I actually found My mind, I probably wouldn't know what to do with it,

Yeah, the language will probably make you blush >:D >:D
Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.

Dont want to ride in that at 12 in the afternoon through the desert.

Would love the screeching sound it makes on the paint of the SU(c)V as you squeeze past it in traffic...
