Exclamation Dont want to wear your gear? You Should Rethink!

So i was coming home from my ride today and on 59 near the Westpark exit, a guy on his bike ended up being clipped by a car and ended up getting BAD road rash. All over his arms and his back completely 'd up. Just reminds me of how people can take for granted wearing their gear. Just wanted to voice my thoughts.

It was a GSXR and there were like 5 other guys riding with him. It just happened like less than an hour ago. The dude was walking around fine but looked like he was in a lot of pain

Yeah, I'd say about by this time he is hurting every time he even thinks about moving or breathing or laying down, etc. etc. etc.

You don't appreciate gear until you needed it and were glad to have it because you see how it took care of you and how bad it could've ended up without it.
