Listen where thou art sitting
under the glassie, cool, translucent wave,
in twisted braids of lillies knitting
the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.

Sweat or Bleed? I'd rather look like a drowned rat when I take my gear off ..

I guess that's a cheap way to get rid of an embarrassing tattoo... :lol:
There used to be a very graphic site called "Live to Ride, Ride to Die" that showed pictures like this (and way worse) to encourage wearing proper gear. I looked at it when I first started riding and it inspired me to go out and purchase boots and Cordura pants.
