BMW helmet, 5 (old) and 6 (new).
Hein Gericke goretex jacket with elbow, shoulder and back protection.
Hein Gericke summer gloves and BMW winter gloves (both with goretex)
BMW trousers (waterproof)
BMW boots.

In summer I have a hein gericke jacket that has zippers that can be opened to let the wind go through.
This jacket has also elbow, shoulder en back protectors.

I usually wear thermal underwear when I’m riding and it keeps my body dry.

No-name helmet, standard trousers and shoes, a mountain jacket when it's cold, and teeshirt/short with jet helmet in summer. And yes, almost no protection at all, I know... for 30 years now. In fact I'm quite more armored when I'm mountain biking (the hard way)!

BTW- I have been wearing nice elk skin riding gloves however I recently bought at Orchard Supply Hardware a $15 pair of deer skin work gloves. Very nice, thick, fit well, probably protective and CHEAP...

Equal to the $65 deer skins at my BMW dealer.

I don’t know about you all.
When I drive any motorcycle without any proper protection, I don’t feel safe and my driving is ..... SH..

I used to train motorcycle drivers in an advanced safety training course and anybody showing up without any proper protection was not allowed to enter the course (everybody knew upfront we would check the motorcycle gear). Doing a training is always a little bit more risky then riding from a to b and therefore we ‘adviced’ People to wear protection gear.

I was involved in minor accidents (only 3) over the last 35 years and appreciated my gear, giving me the protection I needed and not ending up in hospital.

Remember, 75% of motorcycle accidents are caused by car drivers and nobody can assure you this wil not happen to you !
