"There's a green blur, and a grey blur. I try to stay on the grey one."

– Joey Dunlap, on riding in the Isle of Man TT

2011 White paper: MOTORCYCLE PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: PROTECTION FROM INJURY OR JUST THE WEATHER?

“…motorcycle protective clothing is associated with a significantly reduced risk of injury in crashes, particularly when body armour is fitted. While the most substantial effect was observed for open wound injuries, crashed motorcyclists who were wearing motorcycle clothing were also significantly less likely to require admission to a hospital.

These findings have implications for policy decisions related to encouraging the use of motorcycle protective clothing, however mandating use is not recommended at this stage. The failure rate for jackets, pants and gloves indicates a need to establish systems to ensure such products are fit for the purpose. Consideration could be given to providing incentives for the use of ‘recommended’ gear, such as tax waivers for safety gear, health insurance premium reductions and rebates.” – Conclusion, 2011 Australian Academic white paper study of about 300 motorcycle crashes titled: MOTORCYCLE PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: PROTECTION FROM INJURY OR JUST THE WEATHER?
