i dont wear any "protection" when I ride. Just shoes, shorts, and shirt....and the occasional pair of boxers I bring my MP3 player too a lot so im always wearing headphones. I think it helps me focus on my riding. What do you think?

cant ride without gloves -sweat and blood...
cant ride without shinpads -
anyway: focus - thats it. when you have music, you got a whole world of your own - thats the reason why i wear big closed noise cancelling headphones. kind of protection, too. they get a little sweaty, but i dont care. what kind of headphones do u use?

You should wear back padding,helmets,knee pads,elbo pads,gloves, and a mouth guard. They have an open face helment or a full face helment. I am happy to help.

I ride shin/knee pads, a HELMET, and good shorts or pants ALWAYS. And my shirt will depend on what i'm doing, or where i'm going. Never thought about a mouth guard though. How is that useful? i might look into getting one.
