I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with AGATT. It’s a personal choice. I’m AGATT anytime I’m at the track or going out to rip up corners on the R6, or going on the freeway on the VFR 800 I’m an AGATT. If I’m just going out and about running my errands or buzzing around town on my Honda V65 Magna or going out to stunt on the Grom I am in jeans, helmet, gloves, and spine protector... but it’s a personal choice. I have had plenty of wrecks between dirt bike and road course racing and have walked away from every one whether AGATT or not. Again I have been riding for 35 years, I started on an XR 80 when I was 7, and this is my personal choice. I am, however, always in a skid lid or full face. This pic is my daughter sitting on my Honda Magna.

Count your blessings, Ari. Riding a motorcycle is as much a personal choice as the type of gear you choose to wear. You can reduce the risk of injury or death by the choices you make. While you have been lucky thus far, there's no guarantee that you'll continue to be so lucky if you have another incident. We wish you all the best.

If you are always performing "evasive" maneuvers when on two wheels to avoid an "incident," it's time to have a chat with the person in the mirror as it might be your abilities/skills that need improvement.

I'm a newbie. Riding a Harley-Davidson trike and loving it.
A reminder that if you drop your helmet, you probably need a new one since the material within the shell is only rated for one impact.
Treat your helmet as though it is as fragile as a baby.

I am a school bus driver. I drive a bright yellow 40-foot behemoth every day. People still don't see me. Best advice is ride defensively, stay out of driver's blind spots, and ride like every driver around you is clueless.
