When I ride in a leather jacket, jeans, gloves, boots and helmet, I am much
more tentative then when one piece leathers replace the jeans and jacket.
I've had two wrecks in the last three years.
One on the street. Low sided between 35 and 40, slid a while. Would have
walked away but I got nailed between the shoulder blades by a bike that was
following too closely and doing 35 to 40. I was only sore (one piece leathers).
I went down on the track at 75. Slid 150 feet. Quarter size strawberry on
right forearm. I'll take the gear.
and ride faster.
I wear the sme thing on the "street".
