I wear the full riding gear – Helmet, Jacket, Gloves & Boots. Safety First!
Also, by doing this, I switch to camouflage mode as everyone assumes that I am riding a boring, tiny moped. So, there’s no suspicion / unwanted attention drawn, especially from police.
Only time it backfires is when I take the cycle lanes. I get stares from people, as if saying “Why’s he taking a moped in a cycle lane?!” 🙂
