#1 Gear Nazi
I'm an MSF Instructor here on base in Italy, and we teach to: "gear up for the ride, not for the crash." But I hate teaching it because I don't agree with it. I think it gives new riders a false sense of security and an excuse for not wearing proper gear. Maybe I'm not taking the quote the same way as others do. But personally, I gear up for the crash, because I know what's it like to have minor crashes, and what it's like to have major ones. Anyone wanna give me some input on this, maybe a fellow MSF instructor? Anyone though really.
