I started coming here before I started riding. The gear I wear IS because of this forum though.

I added clear eye protection for night riding and a neck cooler with ice and water because of this forum.

Well I poked at the "other" selection because I started reading this forum at the same time or somewhat before I got my bike and license and so this forum has shepherded me into the world of biking. I know myself and it is a good possibility that I would have sluffed off on the safety gear if not for this site and the good people I have met here. So thanks to all of you for your help and thanks in advance for all that I will get.

Looking at the results with a little comparison to the other "Saftey Gear You Wear" poll and some extrapolating, it looks like somewhere from 1/3 to 1/2 of the people who wore little or no gear have changed their ways because of this site.

Congratulations to James and the people who post here. I think that's a very significant accomplishment. Each one has contributed to that in some way.

The board is therefore achieving its objectives. Great.
