So how many people ride around in retro-style half helmets, goggles, and regular clothes, gloves and boots? Or just generally less-than-motorcycle gear?
I understand the A-T-G-A-T-T (Toreador Pants???) mindset, so no need to get preachy. I currently have a full face Arai helmet, Alpinestar Drystar jacket (has decent armor), and riding boots from when I had my motorcycle. I just feel like it's all overkill on a scooter. Yes you can still have a high speed crash with the same results as on a motorcycle, but that's
I want to try a more comfortable jacket with less armor and a 3/4 helmet with full shield and regular leather or mesh gloves, especially on nicer days.
