Dis. A naked rider on a standard bike would still look less ridiculous than a fully clothed recumbent rider.

Scene: I'm driving my married friends around town a year ago, waiting at a light. A recumbent rider, resplendent in his spandex, crosses the road in front of us.

Her: "What kind of bike is that?"
Me: "A recumbent. You've got to be a total asshole to own one."
Him: "Oh yeah, you're guaranteed to be a raging douche. I mean, look at this fucker."

Pause...

Me: "You know, I'm thinking about getting one..."
Him: "Yeah, me too. It looks like a good time."

Will every head have a helmet?

Wiping out on a bike fully clothed is embarrassing enough. Are your naked companions going to stop and help you, cuz I'm betting no one else is.

Because it's not against the law.

How about the ratio of people who look good naked to those who do not?

The operative word is "indecently."

I noticed that too, it seems like a real gray area.
Ride naked in a parade - no ticket.
Ride naked to work each day - ticket?
Is this just a judgement call for the officer?
Henry, maybe you could do a little experiment.

The experiment has already been done. Reference: Mazo Nude Beach.

Have fun riding around naked on your bike with a bunch of guys you recruited on the internet. I hope it works out and all of the riders feel liberated. Are you riding past Olin park by chance?

We are hoping to have trained personnel along to act as field medics.
