I have yet to find a large city that has more benefits than drawbacks.

Obviously never been past JR's or Leonard K's on a summer weekend. Heck in the summer we don't need a "bike night" to see that many bikes go by the house. And if it's a charity ride day, good luck getting any cars into JR's.

Also your attempt to defeat my point, actually makes it. At least here we don't have to navigate through a ton of street lights, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians to get to a gathering, or to find a real road when leaving from a gathering.

It's located at the (south) edge of downtown, close to plenty of bug-out routes and not far from the freeway exits where you will arrive. Just avoid a visit there during ball games, and you'll be fine.
I, for one, don't mind city riding; just a different type of riding. If you can't handle a bit of stop-and-go, Dainese is still available through 'zilla.

On a different note, two staff members from Moto Corsa (PDX) will be part of the crew at the Dainese Seattle. Good folks - hope they manage to transplant the passion up here. I'm currently an a-stars guy... Might feel a bit awkward walking into a store with so many devil worshippers.

No freeway exits here. Just two-lane roads, with corners.

Great looking shop and the staff is quite personable! (First question I got was, "What do you ride?" not buy stuff, buy stuff, buy stuff). I got off light with just gloves and a couple t-shirts, but I'll be back... (and of course I was the first customer, cause I'm that guy)

They will do well.

You hillbillies should get over your fears and check out everything our world-class city has to offer.
World class city Hahahaha

Iím a Dainese guy. Off the rack, Dainese is my best fit. But I donít spend a penny in Seattle and this store wonít change things. Iíll get my Dainese elsewhere.
