I am very much safety orientated when i get on my r6 and wouldn't even consider putting a leg over it without the bare minimum of gear which is for me:
full leathers + back and chest protectors + helmet + gloves + boots
or id wear all of the above except leather pants and use kevlar jeans with knee protectors underneath instead.
I also often ride with my airbag dps vest by spidi
But i still feel there is a lack of protection in the abdominal area, no protection from impalement or anything like that and seeing as its a crucial area containing lots of organs it would seem only sensible to protect it with more than leather!
