I don't recall ever seeing or hearing...
anyone comment "Dang I wish I hadn't had all that gear on when I wrecked!" or "That minute 30 it took to get my gear on was a total waste of time!" But I have seen a few riders with their back, arms, shoulders, knee's looking like hamburger, with grit ground into the skin and bone, plenty of which was left on the asphalt. Then spending a couple of months getting over their wreck.
In my wreck last June, if I hadn't hit the guard rail breaking my arm, I would have gotten up and walked away from a 55 mph get off. I still got up and walked away.
It's a choice, kind of like skydiving with or without a parachute.
For me...ATGATT always!
