Motorcycle show demo rides

Anyone know what gear will be required for the demo rides. Will the standard helmet, jacket, and gloves be sufficient?

I did a demo at the mc rally last year in Galveston. ONLY helmet and sunglasses were required and they were provided if you didn't have your own. I imagine you'll just be in the parking lot and won't get a lot of chance to do much damage to the bikes, so prob only helmets...?

I did the demos year before last, and they took you out on the streets for a few miles. IIRC they required gloves, jacket and eye protection, and close toed shoes
