This is a mate of mine. This is also someone who always wears full gear etc.

This what happened the once he ‘nipped round the block’..

Yes we can judge. I doubt there is anyone who hasn’t popped out without all the gear.... it only takes the one time!!

“Now as you all know I had a motorcycle accident on Wednesday. As some of you know, I spend a large amount of time yelling at people to wear FULL leathers inc ALL other safety gear.

However, on Wednesday, I did not wear full leathers, I wore a bike jacket, jogging bottoms, boots, gloves and my £600 SHOEI helmet.

If I had worn FULL leathers I would almost certainly have got away with the huge laceration to my knee and all the gravel rash.

If, however, I had been wearing a cheap helmet i would have almost certainly ended up with a far more severe bleed on the brain.

SAFETY ON BIKES IS NOT BYPASSABLE. IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOURE GOING "AROUND THE BLOCK"

WEAR FULL PROTECTIVE GEAR AT ALL TIMES!!!!

I still won't though. I watch fatal accident pictures and videos before every season. Still ride with just kevlar jeans and simple back protector vest.
