Just noticed for Dean Wilson it's red riding gloves. Whatever colour gear he wears, the red gloves always stand out. For Anderson, it always was his Jersey hanging out of the back.

What did you catch in the past, or out of the current riders, that a certain rider wears or does, that caught your attention?
Is there some thing that you do or wear, just for the hell of it?

I love red gloves myself for some reason, it goes way back before Deano. JLaw did it also and some other riders.

Strangely enough, I’m one for red gloves as well...always gotta be red. I’ve had some terrible crashes on days I’ve forgotten my red gloves. Weird but true.

Mike Brown used to wear red boots and red gloves back on the PC 125 days. J-Law wore red gloves too.

Lots of different choices in equipment...but as far as mixing colors Mike Brown and the red boots stand out to me like you guys already mentioned. Also Mike Healey always seemed to add some green that stood out.

I think Deano started the red gloves at PC when all the guys had to wear the same gear as a way to differentiate himself a little.
