    Re: Rock The Gear or Skinned Alive!

    Thanks for posting this. My wife gave me my first bike three and a half years ago. While searching the web for gear I ran across her story and it made a huge impact on me as to the importance of good gear. I spend many weekends at the track photographing racing events and have seen many riders go down and understood the importance of good gear. However she makes such a powerful statement with her story. It took what I already knew and drove it deep into my brain.

    May thanks for posting, I am going to pass it on to all my riding buddies.

    Re: Rock The Gear or Skinned Alive!

    Wow, this is a pretty powerful message. How much less do you think she would have been injured in full gear? I mean at 125mph wouldnt there still be a lot of damage? I struggle with gearing up completely in the summer. Its freaking hot out there, this story will help though.

    Seems her only injuries are from the slide, a set of leathers would probably have meant no gravel rash at all.

    Still would have broken her finger maybe, but still a lot less to worry about.

    Very powerful! Best to Brittiny!

    I work for Sysco Foods, I wear shorts and a t-shirt to work, thats what I ride in, with my helmet, I'm never without that, even if I ride a mile to the store, my life was saved by a helmet many years ago.

    Reading her story, my outlook has changed, I am going to gear up, and I'm not riding again till I do, thinking of what she went through really bothers me, anything can happen, there are alot of deer on a certian road I ride on to work, imagine hitting one of them...I already wear boots and gloves just gotta get pants and a jacket.

    Today it was 107 degrees here in Tulsa OK, the humidity was awful, best to be geared up though! Harley dudes can take the pain..not me!

    Re: Rock The Gear or Skinned Alive!

    Thanks for sharing! I was in a 60mph accident as a passenger 18 years ago and luckily survived without a single scar...no gear, no helmet, nothing. Hit a grass ditch and slid. 6 months of therapy on my shoulder that came out of joint. I don't ride as a passenger anymore. I had my license at the time of the accident but didn't have my own bike. Now I do, and I only ride with gear. I couldn't imagine riding "naked" again...
