Re: Staying protected

I feel your pain brother! 10 years ago I was riding home from work (1.5 miles) wearing just an unarmored leather jacket, gloves and helmet when I was hit head on by a drunk driver. Long story short, I ended up with 2 broken toes, broken knee, shattered patela, and a messed up helmet. I finally worked up enough guts to start riding again 5 months ago and now never leave home without my armored pants (mesh and leather), armored jacket, SPidi boots, gloves, and helmet. Motorcycle gear has come a long way in 10 years and there is a lot of comfortable stuff to wear. Absolutely no excuse to leave the home without the proper attire!
