RIP rider.

Would it be wrong to assume that the rider was wearing an open face helmet (w/ boom mic communicator) with no other protective gear just by the bike shown in the picture? I rarely ever see a Gold Wing rider in anything else.

Is there a point in assuming at this point ?

I tend to believe that wearing protective gear improves your chances of surviving. I doesn't make you invincible, but allows for people to make it through accidents that you otherwise wouldn't. I also believe that injured/dead rider statistics end up portraying motorcycle usage statistics as more dangerous/deadly than it is.

Since there aren't too many reliable studies that factor in the use of gear beyond helmets (even those are few), I like to inquire about the gear usage as a personal validation (or not) of the value of gear. I don't like answering the question of the inherent danger of motorcycles all the time when talking to people. It's in the riding community's interest to inform the greater community about the safety of riding in comparison to popular opinion.

For example, there have been studies that found that nearly half of motorcycle deaths are alcohol related and half of those deaths involved a drunk rider. Also, drunk driver percentages skyrocket after midnight. Thus a good rule of thumb for safety is don't ride after midnight.

I'm just trying to figure out the level safety that an ATGATT philosophy improves for the rider. This by no means is a scientific experiment, rather a personal curiosity. We have a thread sitting at nearly 4200 posts for our Wall of Shame. Were some of those pics people that later ended up on a traffic report? We don't know. But having better numbers and better reporting of accidents might help encourage a few people (not expecting everyone) to wear more gear, ride safer and hopefully save some lives.

I agree. Firm believer in gear. Saved my life twice last year

I agree totally. My gear saved a bunch of pain when I went off a few years back. But it's not my place to force people to change. Some people never will. People still smoke and we all know the dangers.

The story doesn't say anything about gear. It's okay to assume whatever you want, but the truth is that another biker is gone. RIP, rider. Remember that those cages always win.
