    I doubt so. I know some bike magazines do reviews on gloves, but they are mostly those flashy, racing type, or winter gloves with insulation.

    Anyway, having some leather is re-assuring. I never think of the fall when I ride, but I do take precautions "just in case".

    The only time I went down with my bike was when I got hit from the back while stopped at a traffic light. At 0km/h, i injured my right shoulder for a month, right knee for two weeks, left hand got abrasion, some fingers numb for a few days.

    I was wearing jeans and teeshirt, nothing else, cos that was my first day on the road, zero experience, zero equiptment!

    you look weirder in cast and bandage, hence the answer is

    no,

    wearing gear is not silly....

    and its much more comfortable then bandages and casts.

    The other day I saw a middle age guy stopped at the traffic lights,
    he had a pair of leather gloves but wearing shorts, tee shirt, slippers and a half helmet with the straps loosely tied

    At least he was wearing a leather gloves but don&#39;t know why and never expect such a character to wear leather gloves.
    It doesn&#39;t make any difference whether a motorcyclist has the right-of-way or not, the rider is the one most likely to get hurt.

    At least he was wearing a leather gloves but don&#39;t know why and never expect such a character to wear leather gloves.
    Looks weird and funny leh...

    I wear a rjay mesh armour jacket, MHR FF, armour glove all brought from LAB.
    The mesh jacket really cool under the hot sun (you won&#39;t feel warm at all esp when moving) but not sure it is really effective???
    anyone want to comment?
    The glove is ok except raining day when it get wet the dye will get into your hand.
    Some ppl say FF is warm but I think u can always open the visor a bit for more air to come in.
    The only thing that trouble me is when I park at shopping centre locking all these in the rear box can be steal easily once u r eye by someone.
    But no choice if u carry it along it will be heavy.
