Most of the Gear all the time.
Helmet, jacket, jeans, gloves, and boots at a minimum. I wear my Roadcrafter with full armor a lot during the cooler months. I wear a Vanson perforated jacket with full armor during the hot months. The rest of the time, I like my Vanson Manx. No armor, but at least it has double leather at the elbows. I've crashed in it once and it performed very well. I realize that jeans don't provide a lot of protection for my legs, but in three different accidents, I've only gotten minor road rash on my knees. I had to endure several days of gooey gross knees and my left knee has a large permanent red spot. Big deal.
