The most interesting statistic to me would be how many riders who have suffered a significant injury while wearing no gear return to biking and now go ATGATT.
I remember very well the weeks of discomfort from a pretty small patch of road rash on my backside. I wear gear now because I don't want to go through that again.
It's pretty easy to believe "it won't happen to me"
Young enough to know I can. Old enough to know I shouldn't. Stupid enough to do it anyway
