I can't stand to ride without gloves, so I,m "Some of the gear,all of the time". I prefer boots too. On some occasions I put on my jacket, helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads also then I'm "All the gear, some of the time. Like 99% of you on hear, it's too late for me to claim ATGATT (I put the hear in for you really smart editing types, and you can't make me correct it ) Not sure what ATGATT has to do with it but I have noticed that I ride faster when my bike is running really well. I don't worry about what you wear, suit yourself.
