Many years ago sat in A & E when we overheard the consultant talking to Police. Conversation went something like this:
I'm afraid that you are going to have to trace the relatives of the motorcyclist, she's died. Her injuries were quite survivable, but because she was only wearing shorts and top she has lost so much skin were weren't able to save her.
Something that has stuck with me ever since.
That's a Facebook quote right there.

LS2 Storm helmet. Good fit with drop down sunshade. Sold with Pinlock insert. Red/blue.
BMW Rally 2 suit, commonly known as the **** Suit. Can be a wee bit chilly but the GoreTex liners keep the rain out. Came with fitted body armour which makes it rather heavy. Now getting on a bit but still works as advertised. Bloody expensive when new. Blue/grey.
Altberg R1 boots. Had these for 15ish years, and still almost like new. Very waterproof. Comfy to wear and walk in.
BMW GS Pro gloves. All I need.
Pair of denims for when the weather's good.

Yes I have a motorcycling wardrobe ... many new riders shop before they ride, then discover riding is a skill that must be worked at ... they abandon the sport and sell off the minimally worn jackets for .25 to .30 cents on the dollar
