we went to njmp to watch the ama pros yesterday. i would venture to say there was at the very least 500 bikes(patrons not competitors) at the park. we parked by the back straight right next to the bike parking so i got to watch nearly every bike come and go.
of the 500 or so bikes i'd say 20% of them had what i'd consider atgatt. all had helmets(state law)most had long pants,30% had jackets.
it was 80 deg f and sunny so temp wasn't a real factor.Harley guys made up about 35% of the bikes but i didn't see 1 with atgatt.
as for the sportbikes,50% had jackets,35% had boots and gloves BUT most 75%-80% of their pillions were wearing shorts,sandals/flip-flops and tank tops!
now who had the atgatt?
90% of the 38-65 y.o. riders/pillions not on Harley's wore proper gear.
it seems that IF you don't ride a Harley and have made it to 40+ y.o. your wise enough to wear atgatt.(i'm good!)
Harley guys are crash proof.
sportbike guys under 30 are invincible(who don't no that) and don't give a shit about their girlfriends.
and i'm a genius
