Is ATGATT overrated?
Not in my book.
In a slow spill I had, my Fox knee guards saved me from a permanent limp. Or possibly permanent disability.
My noggin has been kept intact on several occasions by Arai helmets.
Fieldsheer leathers let me walk away from a 45+mph lowside without a scratch.
MotoGP kangaroo leathers let let me walk away from a 80+ mph lowside and subsequent 100+ foot slide and tumble with a dime sized strawberry on my elbow.
I like gear. Lots of it.
