I think most of feel that they don't ride far enough or fast enough to need it. I guess they don't mind getting hit in the face with rain, bugs, and everything thrown at you by car tires?
On a side note, I think they look just as silly as the sport bike guys with the helmet handing off the back of the bike...lol.
For the record, I ALWAYS wear my gear, I don't find road rash very appealing...lol.
