Yes, did it on purpose, there is a sleeping bag under the bike so it wouldn't get scratches. Why not? It's not going to hurt the bike at all, it's a naked bike, not a plastic covered bike.

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

What are those FZ-16 like?

Now they sell those here instead of the YBR 125 I used to have. The price is not bad, my little brother was asking about one. Have you ridden it?

Closer to topic; hard to get the gear thing in his head, given his story... perhaps once he's riding he'll change his mind? It has happened to a few friends. No drops or crashes, but just riding made them realize it feels better to ride with proper gear.
