Dress for the slide ... not the ride, i like that. For me on the highway, touring, textile jacket with armor, heavy jeans with armor, boots, full face helmet and gloves. My textile jacket has a complete zip out and converts to full mesh with the armor still in place. It also comes with a full quilted liner for colder weather ... 2 Jackets in one.
Putting around town is min jeans, mesh coat, gloves, helmet and boots.
I do have chaps and a leather jacket, as well as armor textile touring pants and coat from my sport touring days, may not look cool but in realy bad, cold , wet weather it does the job.
Anything is better than nothing ... when i was 16 i was out riding thru an intersection when a drunk driver ran a stop sign, i plowed right into the side of him wearing flip flops, shorts, muscle shirt and helmet, boy did i get carved up, no broken bones but lots of gravel rash, next day i was back out riding with protective gear on .. jeans, t shirt gloves and a new helmet on, had to wear flip flops again as my shoes would not fit over my bandaged toes.
Fortunately these days I'm slightly wiser.
As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said
