I'm painting- in huge letters- across the back of my jacket, "FUCK YOUR FASHION". How's that for expression?
I can understand how my original post came off as elitist in itself, and I alluded to that fact, but my overall intention truly is get out there and ride. My primary issue is the fact that I'm judged negatively for what i wear (gape goggles and old outerwear) by the people around me, and I simply decided to bring it up and see what you all had to say.
That said, thank you for all responses thus far.
