I have been lucky and not gone down in a long time, but let me tell you, at 30 mph with only spandex between you and the road, it hurts, and road rash isn't a short term pain......
Yea that was in Mexico.

I hear ya on the road rash!
I laugh at these young guys on rice rockets wearing T-Shirts, shorts & tennis shoes, they obviously haven't slid down the asphalt yet.

You can tell the guys that have been riding a long time, even if it's 100 degrees they have on Jeans, a jacket & boots, road rash sucks!!
