funny you should mention that because I ALWAYS ride with all the gear on. that was the first time ever with a t-shirt and no gloves but I live about 1/2 a mile from there and during the parade we never went more than 20 kph so I figured it was safe.Nice to see the V in a parade. But you are so gonna hear it for not wearing more safety gear...
I would of loved to go without but the RCMP are pretty anal and I'm sure would have ticketed or warned us especially when their couple of m/c guys were wearing.I was going to mention just the opposite! I have never seen a helmet during a parade. Most law enforcement let it slide for parades..
Looks like you had fun!
