You Ask/You Answer: What armour do I need?

"I've been riding for 8 years, and all my kit has some form (or in some case, foam) of armour in the arms, legs, shoulders, back areas.

It's not for falling off

I wear a Furygan Sidney textile jacket while riding around town - shoulder back and elbow protection - with some armoured gloves - Dainese with carbon and steel knuckles. It's not really in case I fall off - more for if someone tries to jump me at the lights or, as happened a few weeks ago, I catch someone fiddling with my engine when parked up in central london....

Just get out of London like @55% of Londoners have, (since the 50's) it's a cesspit of crime...... In My Opinion... if that's OK?

Just shoot the guy after he has to put his weapon away to ride off, then claim self-defense.  Or garrott him if you live in a place where concealed carry is not legal.
