Riding gear/protection is just part of it. No matter how good the clothing, I am 100% confident that the outcomes would be different if first an overweight, unfit and not very bendy 59yo was flung off a bike at 100mph, versus another who was 24yo, had the flexibility and fitness of a gazelle, weighed a few ounces and had been practicing falling off high-speed bikes since he was 12.all you need do is watch motogp/2/3 including practice
and qualifying sessions [free torrent downloads]
to observe motorcyclists testing their gear..
these excellent riders can generally make the best of an off,
but not always, and there will typically be abrasion at least..
