How about all the deaths from heat stoke from riding in full gear, loosing the edge, and crashing, or just dieing on the spot?
Or, the people who think they are protected and take higher risks because they have all the gear on?
I don't wear gear except a helmet and that makes me very cautious as I do not want to go down. I actually stay on my side of the road, read the road surface, read the signs, don't over ride my sight lines, don't ride some roads in heavy traffic, don't push the edge (much), don't own a big powerful bike.
Now, if you are doing high risk, gear up to the max, for my riding, I don't.
