Re: Why you should always wear gear; even if you Mr. Invincible.

Been riding since 2008, ATGATT no exceptions. And that doesn't mean "work boots" or "Kevlar padded jeans". It means full leathers, riding boots, riding gloves, helmet. Under my suit, I have an additional chest/back protector and Knox hip/thing/tailbone protector for extra padding.

No exceptions = keep odds stacked as much as possible on my side.

I went down once on the street, very minor 25mph fall in a straight line and came out unscratched.

I went down once at the track @ ~60mph, lowside, managed to tumble enough that my shoulder scraped through the stretchy Kevlar part of my A* race suit, I mean it's only like 5% of the entire surface area, and I still managed to get a tennis-ball-sized road rash on my shoulder and have a scar for life.

Most people don't wear as much gear as me, but whatever. While I'm alive, I want to live, and I want a good quality of life while I'm at it. ATGATT will help me stay true to my values.

I always love giving harley guys a hard time when they wear no helmet.

Most are pussies that have nothing to say, being a dentist after all.

The most common response is "I wear no helmet because I'm ready to die etc etc harley ftw "
