    Just curious, what do you all wear every time when you ride? I always shudder when i see the kid with a tank top and shorts and the helmet on the back, makes me want to show them pictures from my 'minor' wreck (bike got totaled).

    I wear full face HJC helmet, Joe rocket jacket, riding gloves, good shoes and jeans. I'd like to wear riding pants all the time but its just not convenient. What do you folks do?

    Always with helmet and gloves and boots. The least I would wear is full mesh jacket and mesh pants for those extremely hot days. Or a combo of leather jacket and mesh pants for those fairly warm days. Or full leather for those lukewarm or cool days. I wear full leathers all the way into the mid-80s.

    Vanson Jacket / Fieldsheer Gloves / Shoei helmet most of the summer. Early spring and fall I switch to Gericke "All Weather" Jacket and Pants with soft armour.

    Aerostich Roadcrafter, Shoei RF900, AlpineStars gloves, Hein Gericke boots. If it is REALLY hot, I wear Joe Rocket Phoenix gear (jacket and pants). Never, ever have I ridden in shorts or tank tops. Not even when I had my Harleys.

    Arai carbon fiber race helmet (don't remember the model.) Also gloves boots and some sort of protective jacket on the street. Full leathers on the track.

    Always dress for the crash.
