This forum has come a loooong way since then, and this thread helps keep ATGATT on peoples minds while browsing this site. I can totally appreciate the individual freedom to choose your level of gear when you get out and ride. You should try to appreciate why this thread is here, and what our intentions were we we discussed this exact topic many moons ago. Enjoy the ride, no matter how you're dressed!
I remember the first time (about 10 year ago) that I went to james coney island at Westheimer by Chimneyrock. I was wearing my suit and I remember how hard those kids was trying to make fun of me for the fact that I was all geared up
Today the attitude is much different... I'm very glad they start listening

Or maybe its a thread that might show a new or veteran rider who is afraid to wear gear in fear of looking uncool that rather the majority of the motorcycle community feels you look uncool by not wearing gear. In turn this might prompt a rider to don a helmet the day they happened to crash, saving their life.

I don't usually post in this thread but while I'm here I will say I believe the majority of individuals that do not wear gear have never seriously crashed and or experienced road rash. To each is own but I don't think many fully grasp the consequences of what can go wrong. I suffered a wee bit or rash after the pavement ground through my jeans and multiple layers underneath and I will say having experienced my far share of serious injuries, cleaning and scraping the road out of raw flesh is probably the most pain I've ever endured. I've always worn gear since day one but if that didn't prove to me its importance I don't know what will. I don't even ride down the block without it.

Re-inflating a half-collapsed lung is probably the most painful thing I've had to do. 10 deep breaths every hour, as deep as you can go, with 6 broken ribs.

The major lesson I learned: people run stop signs, and not being at fault doesn't make it hurt any less, so pay the f*ck attention and take intersections slower.

No truer words! Just to be clear you can get hurt really bad even with gear on, the idea is reduce your risk. The doctors said wearing knee pads under my pants may well have saved my leg in my accident. Even though I was not at fault it HURT like mad! Not to mention the cost and rehab. Without the gear it would have been way worse.

. And very true.

My rash was painful when one day I was in "hurry" and didn't bother to put on my jacket or gloves. Helmet saved my jaw on the concrete though.

Can't imagine a collapsed lung and 1/2 dozen ribs.


Nobody is trying to "look cool" while wearing their gear. I mean, yea, the gear does look good by design, but it's because we are aware that we are surrounded by negligent idiots in tanks.

Back on topic: I wish I snapped a pic of a guy in a full face helmet with only cargo shorts and flip flops on (what looked like) an SV650.

When a rock smacks his foot, he'll put it in a shoe, like I did with my hand with gloves :P It's amazing how a little scar on your knuckles can remind you that gloves aren't THAT bad to wear.

Doubtful. He didn't look too bright. Getting smacked with debris with the visor up sucks, too. I should have saved it and kept or in my helmet, huh? ha.

Raised my visor to get some air, and a bee smacked right into my safety sunglasses (from work, I use them when riding too). So glad I had those on, it was right at my eye.

I wonder if you can get gear for kidney stones....... or a bladder infection.
a combination of fire, racing fuel, and shards of broken glass will brighten any dull day.
If pain is fear leaving the body, I should be fearless!!!!

3 times. Narcotics don't do a lot. Morphine confused me enough to where I couldn't concentrate on it, but there was pain in the room - someplace. I knew it was there.
But never had road rash - THANK - so I can't compare.
