Talking ATGATT

Hey all;

This is just a quick note about your gear.
I fell today in a corner, so yea it was only three inches, but at 60 mph. Since 1975 (twice that year), guess I was due.
I ALWAYS wear my aerostich, ALWAYS did I say ALWAYS.
Slight damage to the suit and a good scratch on the helmet.
But all is good. picked the bike up, no real damage, except cash bar wing and rear side bag scratches. And off to work I go.

ALL THIS TO SAY ATGATT.
GOT IT, NOW PUT IT ON.

Re: ATGATT

Have not yet had that honor myself as all my drops are parking lot but yes, I wear my gear all the time. If I ever think about heading out without it, I refer back to a classic Killboy shot and then wonder what I was thinking.

Re: ATGATT

Glad you suffered minimal damage to you and yours. I also were an Aerostich R-3 all the time.

I have toyed with the idea of getting a light textile jacket for short trips around the corner on hot days, but keep thinking that blue jeans wouldn't do much in a drop and textile jackets aren't especially that much cooler. (Prior to the 'Stich, I wore a Tourmaster Air 3.0 jacket.) I'm basically at the point of not going the textile route again, as I'll just don a Colorado Cool vest under the 'Stich, and wear the vest into where I'm going to keep cool.

Re: ATGATT

Having just moved from SOCAL to Georgia I need to re-think our riding gear.
I just rode the RT from L.A. to Acworth and hit all sorts of weather, including T-storms, hail, and temps down to 34F, but no extreme heat.
My BMW rainsuit is great as keeping me dry but does not allow for the Gerbing power cord to exit and be plugged in; the choice I had to make was to either staying dry OR staying hot with the possibility of getting wet.

Here in GA, with the full fairing on my RT, all I need is a set of ski pants and a leather jacket for winter. No heated gear necessary.

I was wearing a textile Tourmaster Air jacket and Venture Air pants when I had my crash on my CBR1000RR. Went over the front at 55mph, broke off the front fairing and slid for about 40 feet on my side and helmet on a gravel road. I did have a bruised lung from hitting the fairing, but had no other body damage. I had the same thoughts about how well textile gear would hold up. I bought all of the same gear again.
