here buckets are the law so i'm wearing one anyways, takes me slightly longer than doing up a seat belt to put mine on.

pants and jacket slip on

gotta wear footwear (i like having toes) so I may as well wear boots that are good for motorcycling.

So really is less than 5 minutes out of your day that much? You can do that while the bike warms up. and if gearing up takes more than 5 minutes who dresses you in the morning?
Well someone must dress me in the mornings.
I ride everyday. 5 minutes in the house then off to the garage, open the lockers and boots back off overpants on boots back on. Jacket easy, neck gaiter, baklava (sp), helmet, gloves. So yeah it can get over 5 minutes of time especially in the cold months.
The tiring part of it is the repetition for me, so I try to use two or three setups. Even changing helmet on different days so it doesn't get too repetitive. Would I ride without it? No, I feel naked without it.
