One day in; overwhelmingly ATGATT, or thereabouts.

A bit surprising - Given that the tops seems a bit contentious, and the subject of some long running threads, I would have expected a bit more of a spread, and a few more in the helmet, jacket and gloves group. As it is with 67 votes, well over 80% wear most or all of "the gear", or more.

But then ADVrider members are probably, in general, serious about their hobby, thus likely to invest in the gear that goes with it.

Here in these tropical parts, registered motorcycles outnumber cars by about three to one. Bikes are generally seen as just a way to get around, with 95% of them being sub 1/8th litre scoots. But even among the more "serious motorcyclists" with bigger machines, you would be hard pushed to find a single ATGATT.

A surprising amount of helmet compliance in the picture below.... probably a police checkpoint nearby that morning.

there are old motorcyclists and bold motorcyclists
but you seldom meet an old, bold motorcyclist
