Default I need something for riding.

I have a touch of asthma and some hay fever.

And is usually my lot in life, I'll spend an entire hour cleaning my lungs on the gym StairMaster, only to have some addict light up a cigarette the moment I pull my bike onto the Interstate.

I'm not a big fan of diesel fumes, either.

Does anyone know of some form of light-weight mask or small respirator with a filtering system tight enough for the particulates of smoke, fumes and idiocy? Something I can carry with me on my bike?

Something like this:

But not this, not yet...

Thank you. I just saved it to my 'favorites list' for ordering some after the holidays.

BTW, cold air also effects asthmatics, this might aid against that, as well.

I will look at the fire station tonite. In my wildland gear, I have a nice filter mask. It works for working in heavy smoke from grass/brush fires, so it should work for your application.

Wow, she's mighty pretty. Great lines. My heart started pound.

I just wish they would have gotten that babe off of the bike so I can see more of the open clutch and parts of the rear frame...

I'm saving my money to put in my mouth when the economy tanks and fiber is at a premium.

Take the same slob, sit him on a chrome Harley, and babes will wait in line to lift their tops.

Personally, I'm not fond of biker babes. I know one Harley calendar model. She has a Sportster and she rides out of the same shop I go to.

Not much to look at up close. If you change the subject from "unique nail-polish colors" to something like the weather, you get this same vapid look like you surprised her with a math quiz.

Perhaps the two facets deserve each other.

Biker babes and newbie rider dentists on pristine Sportsters.

I'm not a babe, but I love to ride bikes! With Redneck only. A bike is dangerous and he's the only one I would trust my life with. If something happens....then as soon a I can I'm gonna knock the slop outta him.

I don't even ride along side some bikers. Our bikes are very dangerous, I trust few, and I don't want to die from foolishness, either.
