Always wear gear
I lowsided once, and had full gear. Shoei helmet, dainese leather jacket, pants, gloves, dainese wave2 protector, and high cut puma boots. I only had a sore shoulder after the accident.
You never know when things like this happens. I was riding on a road I'm familiar with, but there was an unexpected patch of gravel in the turn.
Ended up buying brand new DAinese gear and an Arai helmet. That stuff saved my skin for sure!
If you're riding around town and going out, it's tough to be wearing leather pants. So I have a set of forcefield body Armor. That stuff is great as well.
