Shorts and T-shirts are NOT appropriate riding gear!!!

Of course I am assuming he was on one of the quads in the pictures.

Well, pulling them out is easy. If I remember correctly, their spines are hollow and brittle, so they can splinter into more pieces, so could take a while to get all of them out

I ride in shorts and tee also, but then again, I'm in dunes, haha

Having been a victim of Cholla in the past, but not to this guy's extent, it SUCKS!!! I brushed up against one years ago and had just one bulb stick into my calf. I spent the rest of the day with a pair of pliers pulling spines out of my leg. What that guy is going through has to be agony.

Here's another unfortunate victim of the "Jumping Cholla."

I have been through this. It sucks.

Probably had 20 of thoose stuck in me from my knee to my ear. The next day all of the needle holes looked like they were infected and itchy. Looked like a really bad case of posion ivy.

trust, you dont EVER want to meet them. they have little barbed at the ends and theyre somewhat difficult to get out.
ive came around a blind corner on my motorcycle and brushed my arm against one and that was the end of that. they hurt super bad!!
