Worst biking fashion mistake?

There are plenty of questionable biking fashions, but which is the worst?

sunglasses behind clear visor

... that's not a fashion mistake, it's a product of the current law regarding visors.


I'd say anything with a Harley logo on it has to be #1.

Bank managers dressing as Hells Angels on their Harleys. Bro.

Camo trousers on streetfighters. Sandals with socks (more for ramblers, really).

Gold Wingers dressed in matching jackets and helmets, with intercom. 

Submarine sweaters and high top boots, with carrier bags as overboots. The list goes on, but I'm sure I've offended a few people! One which I commit myself, by the way, is being a podgy slap head in, shall we say, snug fitting leathers? They used to fit, but must have shrunk or summink.

They could be prescription sunglasses so a tinted visor wouldn't help. There are things that I wouldn't wear (stick on ears, chaps, open face helmet etc.) but that doesn't give me the right to slate others for wearing them. I think the previous comment about this being about naff things rather than fashion is right. But; we all have a crafty look in a shop window reflection, just to check we're looking good don't we?

power ranger suits (which they need for all 300 miles they ride a year) with knee sliders that will only get worn down when they fall off at the first bend they meet after their winter break

what a bunch of girls.... maybe their power ranger suit was the best fit and they don't like the colours/racerep, but preferred safety and fit over fashion? maybe they care more about being warm and dry and bulk discounts than how they look?.... what if they're breaking in a new track suit on the road and don't knee down because it's excessive on the road?.... but no, the bunch of people slagging off colour co-ordination in their sewing circle of cynicism are the "men" who "don't care".... right :) whatever you want to tell yourselves

style icon, no.

You can't live your life worrying about what others think about you or what you wear, and fashion changes by the moment and is worthless anyway. I like to wear a parka and jeans with chunky boots when I ride my 'blade just to confuse people. And screw the safety brigade, who cares about them.
