What might you consider the least amount of gear for you when you may not go ATG? What is absolutely indispensable?

Do you find you may wear some gear mainly for reasons other than safety?
Fullface helmet, either Darien, or Motoport jacket and pants, motorcycle boots, and leather gloves.

The only thing I might skip in is the pants, and if I do I won't wear anything less than Carhart duck double knee. I realize they're not much better than jeans, but I still have my first pair after 9 years of heavy use. They've been retired from motorcycle duty for about 6 months.
