Appropriate jacket, gloves, boots with 1/2 or full helmet. Had one idiot broad side me when he ran a stop sign in which I did not have all the gear and I was one wobble away from pavement at about 45mph. Stopped ridding about a year later but finally got back on and haven't stopped. I gear up whether going to the store or 500 round robin. I know what mean about those without for them and their pax. It's a choice just like helmet or no helmet. Me and mine will always ride for the slide should it occur.
