Ditto. Back in the 60’s I rode sans helmet for a few months. Got tired of getting smacked by bugs/rain etc. A few years later while traveling about 75 down the slab I hit a Sparrow-on top of my “original” Bell Star. Dropped my head so chin was as far down as possible when I realized impact was imminent. That little 2-3 ounce bird darn near knocked me OFF the bike. Never, ever, rode a bike without a full face or quality modular lid and full PPE (motorcycle boots, pants, jacket and gloves) since. If it’s too hot for gear, it’s too hot to be on a bike (and it’s very seldom too hot for thatI've been on the ground and all the gear saved my skin, my jaw and a few other body parts. I'm ATGATT even if I'm just riding around the block. Blue jeans will disintegrate in the first few feet of a slide. Then its your skin vrs. the asphalt. Guess who wins. As another fellow says...its an asphalt belt sander you are riding on.
