 A Touchy Subject,

ATGATT is shorthand for the motorcycle safety philosophy “all the gear, all the time” which maintains safety gear should be worn at all times and should not be reduced at times when the perceived risk is less. More complete information about ATGATT, read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorcycle_safety_clothing.

 The basic ideals of ATGATT are discussed throughout Rockthegear.com’s site, where they focus on gathering the latest information on safety gear products and provide testimonials of people who have been in accidents. Their mission states,

“We will strive to produce up-to-date information on all the latest available technologies in protective apparel.  Links to new articles from industry-wide sources as well as reviews from riders just like you will be posted weekly.
