The boots are the most impractical thing. Everything else you can take off and leave at the motorcycle. Isn't theres something to wrap around regular shoes and jeans?

My only problem with this video is on jackets and pants. I don’t ride with a jacket and pants because I’m worried it will kill me, I ride with them because I’m worried it won’t and I’ll end up loosing an arm or leg. Just because it’s not lethal doesn’t make it not important.

The "Chinstrap" will BREAK the neck of the person wearing it! The Military went to a TRUE chinstrap that goes over and on the actual CHIN of the person to hold the helmet in place! Also a military helmet will stop an AK47 bullet... yet it doesn't meet any of your testing standards and therefore ILLEGAL !!

Statistics may say, that some injuries are more probable to happen than others. Still, you cannot conclude, that e.g. wearing no jacket is not that critical. Why? Because you do not know what people were actually wearing when becoming part of the statistic by crashing. So the numbers could also mean, that wearing a jacket actually helps preventing bad injuries.

Funny u talk about newbs dropping a 500lb bike on their ankles. My first bike was a 150cc scooter & yes it weighed 550lbs plus the bags & spare gas can (stupid thing only had a 2 gal tank, not good for a 120 mile round trip daily ride) & yes dropping it hurts ankles & lower legs like fuck. I used my construction boots since i was riding to & from work which had 12 inch ankles & armored like a tank to protect from worksite trauma so they held up.

Thank you so much for this. I'm looking to get my first bike and have been questioning the relative importance/value of different protection areas. I was wondering the value of things like shoulder/knee pads. Sound like abrasion resistance should be #1 for pants and jackets

I took lessons last Spring. I asked the instructor if my Blundstones were sufficient enough for riding. She said absolutely not. I got proper boots, jacket, helmet and gloves. Fell off the motorcycle and was trapped under the bike. Thank goodness for proper protective gear!

I bought moto boots, but they don’t fit under my shift lever , even when adjusted fully open. I wear tall leather steel toes whenever I’m riding until I fix the issue.

Love this gear's practical and that's what most people want. They don't want to drop 1-2k in gear to commute 3 miles to work. Yaya dress for the crash not for the ride....but let's be real. Not many of us do that, so let's use statistics to compromise. LOVE IT! And actually you have me rethinking my footwear because I don't own full boots despite being a Dual Sport rider -SHAME!

I'd just like to say that nazis killed people by crushing their heads. Basically everyone who died during those tests are the reason why helmets work so well. Every time I put on a helmet I think about their suffering.

My rule as far as jacket & pants go is, always dress as if lying on a hot road is part of the plan. No shorts, no short sleeved shirts, ALWAYS gloves, ALWAYS boots. And ALWAYS have your emergency contact number clearly marked in your phone as your emergency contact number...

Isn't looking at injury statistics for the most necessary piece of gear like looking at shot holes in returning aircraft to decide where armor is most needed? All it tells is that footwear is the *least common/effective* form of armor. Injury statistics should not be used to inform what protection a rider should wear - they reflect wearing *trends of other riders*. The only consideration should be: what parts of you can you afford to lose?

Extensive skin lesions can complicate recovery after an accident due to opportunistic infections (without skin, the natural protection barrier against bacteria), are comparable to extensive injuries caused by burns, may require skin transplantation. You can die after you have survived the accident!! Motorcyclists need abrasion protection.

I've been riding for 3 years and even I learned something here. Even in the shop I was told my Timberland boots where good enough, they are definitely not. I'm lucky I didn't brake anything the few times I low sided in my beginnings. Time to get some more gear!

Riley Aniston Acum 21 o Zi Conclusioni banali ma inconfutabili, cosi come prototipi interattivi, sono solo un metodo di partecipazione politica e sono ugualmente lasciati a se stessi. Ecco un vivido esempio delle tendenze moderne: l'attuazione degli obiettivi pianificati predetermina l'elevata domanda di requisiti prioritari. Il punto di vista opposto implica che i prototipi interattivi, superando l'attuale difficile situazione economica, siano oggettivamente considerati dalle autorita competenti. Allo stesso modo, il rafforzamento e lo sviluppo della struttura interna fornisce un'ampia gamma di (specialisti) partecipazione alla formazione del ritiro delle attivita correnti.😍 Aqui esta um exemplo vivido das tendencias modernas - o inicio do trabalho diario para formar uma posicao depende diretamente do progresso da comunidade profissional. Tendo em conta as taxas de sucesso, a solidariedade da equipa de profissionais e uma experiencia interessante para testar novas propostas.

I like your videos, but fetality isnt the only concern. Paralysis and permanent life altering injuries are very possible without full gear. Try sliding on asphalt with you knee in jeans going 40km/hr and let me know how it goes.

The spine was massively overlooked in this video. For most people being paralysed is a fate worse than death. I wear an ApStars airbag vest religiously because I don't want to wake up in hospital not being able to move. The joints were also overlooked. Again who wants to need a walking stick for the rest of their life because they skimped on jeans and got a shattered knee from a fall.

Ryan I have been watching you and your channel grow with better and better quality and content. And I have resisted subscribing for a while. But your vid on the Indian FTR and this about Beginner gear was just awesome. I've been riding a very long time and have taught and been a proponent of safety for almost as long. Good job on this video, others and your competent knowledge and explanations. I am now a subscriber and will be pushing friends and family your way as well. Your style and humor remind me of "Top Gear" / Animal Planet / Neil Tyson Degrassi... 😀👍

I crashed and broke my ankle, pelvis in 3 places and wrist so I agree with those statistics on most common injuries... I was wearing full gear so and had about £900 worth of protective motorbike gear cut off me but it was worth all the money becuase it definitely saved me!

I prefer leather gloves with thick leather straps over the knuckle and decently thick leather patches over the palms and the leather reaches halfway up the forearm. because leather holds up quite well when skidding

Interesting, I am currently doing my motorcycle license in Germany and they told us to never pull levers with two fingers but instead to always use all four to not break or lose them in case of an accident involving the handle bars

Buuuut, doesn‘t „thorax, arms and legs etc, aren‘t going to kill you“ mean that that statistic doesn‘t consider lasting injuries to said limbs and joints? A broken elbow will most likely never heal completely, a shattered knee will leave you limping until the day you die and a shattered shoulder, something that i myself managed to do while snowboarding with no shoulder protector, hitting a snowy mountain side and not a car, left me having issues with it to this day. Not only do i want to protect my life, i want to protect my health. So, while i get Ryan‘s point and agree with 95% of the things he‘s said on this channel, i‘d disagree on the view on jackets and pants. Make sure a crash will at most mean a visit to the hospital and a few weeks of healing rather than a life with an aching arm. Or, worst case, without an arm at all.

Careful with statistics. A lifetime Injury pain affects drivers 100% of the time. While death pains have a 0% chance to cause continued suffering for the rider.

8:00 but thats not the point though... Even if it has 0% chance of KILLING you if you skip the jacket, it WILL reduce injuries. I dont know about you, but personally i'd rather have my left lung NOT punctured by something that WOULD have been stopped even by a medium thin leather jacket, and survive, compared to HAVING my left lung punctured, rushed to hospital, and survive.
