when I first got my bike I didn't have riding experience and no license. But did have a jacket, gloves, helmet. Why??? Don't know why??? But I am so..... glad I did. For me...I use gear because its safe for me because the day that I'll eat ! I wanna make sure that I get back up with no road rash and Get to walk away with my skin still stashed to my body. Yeah it's true about gear will no make a different if you crash and hit your head to a poll but what about city riding? ?? I got hit 3times on my bike and one of them send me to the hospital with a fracture pelvis and all the others send me home for 2 days.

I believe it's more worth the fight to preach to go to the track and improve your skill set, then all the gear all the time. You will still get fooked up if you don't know how to ride whether or not you're wearing full leathers or a wife beater.

I rode all the way from galveston to 610/westhimer like this. THEN I decided I needed to "look cool" so I took my jacket off, strapped it along with helmet to rear or bike. and rode down westy in nothing more than jeans and a white tshirt. MAN, was I cool!

Thank , I not only learned from others advice and mistakes and started wearing full gear, but I sit back and laugh, because I can just see what people were prolly saying back then when I rolled up on my 1990 kawi zephyr 550 trying to look all cool and .
i can't figure out who was less cool ... you, or me with a few of my buddies who would ride in my 1998 chevy p/u and watch ppl at james coney / weisthimer ride around and do stupid . so lame. hahaha u just gotta look back and say " well, i'm glad i'm over and done with that phase of my life "

Don;t preach but give examples and encourage. If they turn the other cheek it and move on.

Well it comes down to common sense and logic. Don't they teach physics in schools? Basic principles apply here

But it comes down to ego > common sense/logical thinking - financial planning (as people don't seem to factor in the cost of gear when financing the bike they can't afford in the first place)

It also seems to be a regional problem. Looking at other states (California anybody) or countries it's a whole different ballgame.

Just my $0.02 and what do I know. I'm just too inexperienced so I wear my 1 piece on the streets

And look at all the videos (or at the people when you're there) you see posted from riders in LA riding the canyons ..

I just think it's plain stupid to not wear gear, simple as that.
