Ouch! I'm sorry about your accident, that must have been really scary. I hope you're back on your wheels soon. Seeing your pictures has done some good, though--the day before your accident, my mom admonished me for scootering to her house in a tank top (I was helmeted and gloved, at least). Now I see she was right!

Ouch! In finally getting my endorsement and a bike this year, I was completely torn between a Stella and a Ducati and although y'all's scene seems way more fun and active than the local Duc scene, I finally went with the Ducati because of the whole safety / gear issue. On a sportbike, it's natural to wear full crash gear - helmet, boots, leathers, armored gloves. Plus the wheels are bigger. But on a scooter, I just want to dress as if I'm on my cruiser bike in a skirt and heels. This is also a great reminder to tone down the interest in getting a stella w/sidecar for the kid.

I wear armored gloves, a leather (non-armored) jacket, long pants, boots, goggles, and a helmet when I ride my Stella. I get some comments, but it seems natural enough to me. No sense ripping my skin off - I've grown rather attached to it.

FWIW, I wear jeans, comfy boots, my Aerostich jacket, elkskin gloves and a Shoei full face when scooting. I usually wear the full Aerostich suit over my work attire when commuting. I might get one of those mesh jackets w/body armor for running around town, especially on hot days.
