It can get downright irritating to spend 15 minutes strapping yourself up for a 10-15 minute ride.

Plus if he was doing only regulation speeds, its okay to skimp out on the jacket etc.

What say?

Yeah, you are right on that 'short ride' thing though those chappals are as ridiculous as it can get. I understand it takes sometime putting on all that gear but it doesn't take more than a couple of minutes to put on a pair of shoes.
Its next to impossible for me to shift gears wearing chappals. I do not know how these chaps on superbikes manage.
