Here in Norway you are required to wear full protective clothes to be allowed to take the driving courses.
By law you only need a helmet, but I still ride with full gear each time I venture on my bike. So boots, pants, jacket, and gloves are top notch Goretex gear.
I've seen my fair share of videos where people only have a helmet as their safety gear, and pays the price for it when they go down.
I don't know about the rest of you, but the skin on my a*s is supposed to stay there!
The summer is uppon us, so I will be investing in some lighter clothes, but they will still be with kevlar to prevent my skin from disappearing.
So then it'll be reinforced shoes (but normal looking), reinforced pants with kevlar (but normal looking), a skin jacket with reinforcement, and some simple gloves.
Safety first people, so don't go cheap on your riding clothes, there is alot of crap out there markeded to be mc clothes but wich doesn't hold up when it matters.
