It was indeed very well done. However, I don't think what he was wearing could be considered ATGATT.

That is being picky though. Considering the focus group for the message.

gear

Gear saved me too. Last fall on the way to work went around a corner and a farmer has spilled liquid fertilizer on the road. Was down before I knew what happened. Went sliding down the road on my butt. If I had only had on my levi's I would have been having a skin graft done on my butt, my Olympia suit saved me from that. It can happen to anyone, when you least expect it.

the reason his age group crash more is due to the lack of rider skill,your brain and skill are the best safety tool!!!!!!
Sometimes there are people driving autos that are half asleep, not paying attention that just want to kill you to get to the soccer game on time!

I've had that happen a few times and I've appreciated both my riding skills AND the ABS (gear).
