My minimum is helmet+jacket and gloves. Preferred is at least having pants too, and I use my boots when I go on planned rides longer than what it takes to warm up the engine properly. Not truly ATGATT but never squiddin.
My commute to work takes under five minutes through slow-moving traffic (cars and busses), so on those rides my lid is my only protection.
For all other journeys I wear full protective gear: HJC lid, Furygan jacket and pants, RST boots and gloves.
I wasn't sure about posting this message because I knew I'd receive disapproving looks, but then I realised that it's those disapproving looks that will discourage me from skimping on PPE, which I know I should not do.
Yeah there at times that I do the same but I'm starting to wear all my gear just the off chance that something did happened. One of my friends got to an accident recently. Just bumps and bruises nothing major bit he had his gear on and it saved him.
