People that ride without gloves are out of their mind

Whenever I see someone riding with bare hands I wonder what they are thinking. Besides handling grips with sweaty hands and getting numb from the vibes, I don't want to grind my hands down to the nubs from a get off. Skin is soft and concrete is hard.

Couldn't agree more, but then I think riding without ALL your gear is ridiculous. How many road rash videos do you need to see to realize how it is!

I just remember scuffing my knee on the sidewalk as a kid. I think about that 100x worse and it makes me appreciate gear immediately.

I saw a guy on the freeway with no gloves today and thought the same thing. What possible hindrance could gloves be? I don't think there are any, if you have good gloves. So weird.

The graphic visual images of the consequences of crashing without gloves should hit them over the head with a sledgehammer. Some people are so dense, it's the only way to reach them.

The people not wearing gloves usually don't have any other gear on. These are confident riders that think they will never ever make a mistake. They also have 100% confidence that every ever driver is paying attention and will never make a mistake. This kind of confidence is great and we need people like this to be organ donors.

^ Yeah pretty often. I've crashed my bicycle twice and road rash at ~11mph sucked bad enough.

It's the hands though - like, they are very fragile and almost everyone basically makes their living with them. You scrape up your thigh and real good, it's going to suck and you could be disfigured, but you'll essentially recover or at least not become disabled like if you lost half your thumb and index finger on the highway. And gloves are so easy to put on!

This is so true, it's actually a lesson my buddy learned by going doing. He DID have gloves on, but the whole in his gloves when he got up was HUGE. He realized that it coulda been his skin and it convinced him about all of his gear

When I first bought gear before the msf class, my buddy advised me I get gloves that lock onto your wrists because you don't want them coming off if hit the cement. I'm glad I listened. Those pics are nasty.

This. When I was a teenager I had a glove fly off in crash, ripped the skin off some of my knuckles and took forever to heal. Luckily the scaring was minimal. Tough lesson learned. The glove did protect initially, so loose gloves are still better than no gloves.

Actually all your gear (including helmet) should fit comfortably snug. I've see people's shoes/boots shoot off too!

Are those pictures from motorcycle get offs or just degloving accidents? They are GNARLY!

I actually like all the gear, like my friends call me "Gear Queer" because I actually like the gear. I like how I look suited up. Sure it's hot sometimes but I'll take a mild bout of dehydration and sweaty clothes over being the subject of a picture in a thread like this.

Those pictures.............

I think everyone on this forum wears gloves........now for sure.

I wear double armor on every spirited ride......and still feel vulnerable. I tried triple armor for just the back and chest but it was just a bit too much, but felt great when lying down.......like a tempurpedic cradle.

Come on man when I wear gloves I don't feel connected to the bike and it feels weird too me and I will never be able to adjust to that , but when I know I am going to ride with gear guys I wear my mechanics gloves because they are gloves and will work the same


































Ps. not how I feel or wear at all

Wow those pics are brutal.

I think what makes me crazy is that I've seen so many videos of people stunting or doing stupid things on the freeway. They're never in gear and when they crash, they always seem to just roll on the pavement and then pop back up unscathed.

I don't know how some people just seem to get lucky and then others wind up in the gross pictures above...

After my wreck, I cringe at the thought of what might have become of my hands without those gloves.

I think those may be industrial de-gloving accidents, but it's not impossible - if you get caught under your bike while it's sliding you're going to have a bad time.

I think in those videos you're seeing the accident and not really the aftermath. Adrenaline will keep them moving until they have a second to feel that rash.
