I ride with Knox knee guards under FirstTour and Dubinky mesh pants, and wear Sidi Adventure Rain boots consistently. Haven't had to put them to the test, but after ACL surgery on one knee, I do not want to go thru the months of rehab again!
I would love to wear light ankle moto boots, light pants, no kneeguards, blah blah...but know that the first day I tried to get away with it, some idiot or a patch of oil on a tight curve would put me to the test. ATGATT for me.
Best wishes to heal up quickly and well!
Someday is not a day of the week.
