ATGATT to me means:

FF helmet with proper eye protection. Most of the time that includes ear plugs.

Jacket and pants with impact protection, good tear and abrasion resistance. I like mc specific clothing because it gives me room to move.

Gloves with impact and tear/abrasion resistance. A dual retention system is a must for me. Don't go cheap with gloves - the human body has more nerve endings in the hands than in the genital area.....

Boots with a grippy sole, low heel, maybe even some shin/ankle armor.

A downside to denim (aside from low tear/abrasion resistance) is that denim tends to "grab" the road surface, often times causing a crashing rider to tumble vice slide, which in turn can lead to (more) broken bones.
A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Give it more gas, if it doesn't solve the problem it will at least end the suspense.
