I wear ATGATT, but the level of gear varies greatly.
I will ride in full up race leathers with race rated gaunlet gloves, race boots, track approved full face.
But I will also ride in 6" Tourmaster Response Road boots, kevlar jeans, mesh jacket, full finger mesh gloves, and modular helmet.
The most important thing is how you ride. lane position. willing to give up your right away at a moments notice. choosing roads less travelled. Riding like you are invisible instead of invincible.
