ATG needs to be some kind of armoured or padded clothing covering all of you. not something considered as normal everyday clothes.

i.e even if i had my lid, jacket, back protector, gloves and boots on with jeans it wouldnt be ATG because i would need to put my kevlar jeans or textile pants on

i dont fully gear up around town, always my lid and maybe jacket and gloves if its not super warm outside. i always wear jeans though, never shorts or flipflops or anythin cos i dont have any lol with a 30mph speed limits and traffic lowering that speed even more i wouldnt be much worse if i came off the moto than i would be coming off my bicycle.

to be fair i had a very serious crash where i hit a car at 60-70mph and wasnt wearing any proper bike gear apart from a lid (had only started riding) and i didnt do any major lasting harm to myself.
