After watching a few of your videos all I can say is I hope you heal up quick....it is going to happen.

And I do not agree with your riding style.

Looks like basic U.S. (Cali)/U.K. to me, but way beyond my meager skills.
Compared to what I've seen from other parts of the world Joe appears fairly tame.

Skills help, but they do nothing for that cell phone talking idiot in the other lane....you all know it is true but there is a point of no return in about every encounter. I ride to minimize that....and don't go looking for it.

Problem in the world is yes there are total idiots out there, but the other side of the coin is not enough people with brains take the high road.

I like a thin glove and these fill the bill for me. Thick gloves are just too un-comfortable...

I found some plain black "mechanics" gloves at Wallies for $20, but l noticed when l was in Home Depot they have quite a snazzy range of them now!

I must admit though that l do feel safer in my proper leather bikers gloves though.....................

I would suggest you look into just what those gloves are made of....keeping your hands safe if you grab a header is one thing, keeping it safe after sliding across 3 lanes of highway after someone in a white camaro decides he "did not see the bike" is another....many of those materials will just melt to your skin.

The things we do when we are watching our computers work.

Not bitching, just hope someone does not see his video and think that is the safest way, or right way to ride. We have a range of riders on this site...some buy the versys as their first "big" bike and are pretty new at riding in general or on the street. Others are older riders that have been on for 40 years.

Just hope those new riders don't think that Yield and brakes are not for them....motorcycles in general have a lot of a$$hats that ride them and cleaning up our image and being courteous while we ride goes a long way to help that.

I agree with your fine work as the site policeman for safety that you have so humbly taken on, but did you miss Ron Heaters inane replies about the guy in the white Camaro having "right of way" because he signalled, or that it's OK to drive aggressively as long as you signal, & to indicate means right of way in Ron's World, or are you just having a bitch at someone else because you apparently don't like them?

PS, l'll wear whichever (if any) f8cking riding gloves l choose to, but thanks for telling me something l already know!

Saw these on another forum. I like the yellow and their price is at least 20 bucks cheaper than anybody else. Big plus is they are located less than 14 miles from me......Scorpion SGS Gloves (CLOSEOUT) - Extreme Supply

Their website says they have only black, black or black left!
Also when l went to check out a pair it came up as the original price, then there's shipping on top, so l'll carry on wearing my "unsafe" mechanics gloves till l see something better!

Something to "keep-in-mind" all of you that ride w/ minimal gloves on - I've been told that the ONLY parts of the human body that can NOT be skin-grafted are the hands, and that's what will be sliding along the asphalt...!

Enjoy...your hands.

I post this stuff up here because there are many newer riders on this side that get this bike as their first "big" street bike. And offer a little bit of experience from my 40years of riding motorcycles...both on the street and off.

The white car may have used that newly installed feature that makes a light blink, but he may not have seen the bike...they are a bit small you know....and I have slid down a road and ended up on top of a hood because people did not "see" me....has nothing to do with right-a-way...but the right way to do things.

By your last comments you have never had a hospital take a wire brush and scrape what was left of your gloves off your hands before and pick bits of gravel out of your palms.....just another suggestion based on what has happened to me.

Sounds like I am having a chat with my 19yr old kid...he knows everything as well.
