I've never really been into the get so dressed up to ride that I am uncomfortable idea... But, I also do like the idea of having at least some skin if the worst should happen... So, I ride with a half shell (didn't like the feel of a full face, so I don't use one...), thinking about getting a modular for the winter on long rides, but that is it... I always ride with long pants, either jeans, thick khakis, or ****ies... I almost always have a short sleeve shirt on, and in colder months throw on a hoodie or comfortable jacket and chaps and a pair of gloves. If taken a longer ride in the summer I might throw on a hoodie only to save on sunburn. I always wear eye protection, usually cheap shades that cover well and stay on when turning my head. I ride with 8" tactical boots, most comfortable for me and I don't like burnt ankles... LOL Oh yeah, need not forget my vest with colors, always ride with that on. (Nothing funnier than a rabbi with tzitzit- the little tassels hanging out the bottom of the shirt- flopping in the wind on a motorcycle, pulling up and removing a half shell with a yarmulke underneath, and a giant Star of David on the colors)
But, I've never go ATGATT... I prefer comfort on my rides, and if the worst happens, at least most of me will have skin... But, all the riders I've ever been around are the down and dirty bikers that tend to either be or hang out with the 1% and 2% (as a friend of mine calls the support clubs who hold down real jobs too)... So... I guess that's what rubbed off on me in terms of gear...
