Totally agree...I usually wear leather, with exception on days it is way A$$ hot around here. My preference would be to slide as it allows you a little more control. Once you start rolling, it's kind of difficult to track your path.

Leathers - slide
Textile - replace with leather - slide

My brother low sided at 35mph with joe rocket textile coat and pants. He slid. He only had minor bruising, but on the initial impact, the shoulder ripped out of the coat and the knee ripped out of the pants. I'm not exaggerating either, it was seriously 35mph and it was on a smooth freshly paved mountain road. I guess the gear did protect him, but he seriously had exposed skin on his shoulder and knee after the initial impact with the road. I picked up a set of leathers the next week and have never put on another set of textile gear, with the exception or aerostich, which is in a completely different category from your standard textile gear.

I had a slight high side going maybe 10mph from my gf's parent's house. I came down their driveway, started making my turn to the stop sign, and my back tire slid out from the back, I grabbed the back brake and rode it out till the bike rolled over on it's side and I came off. I rolled 3 times on smooth pavement. I was wearing my gear (textile jacket with armour, helmet, gloves, boots). I ended up being shooken up, but my gear did the job and I was fine after rolling.

Sometimes you don't have a choice, but I would go with JM1 with his choices if possible.

Hmmm, think people are starting to lose sight of the direct question here:
  • Would you rather: Slide or roll when wearing full leathers, helmet, gloves, and boots whiles going 55-65 MPH.
  • Would you rather: Slide or roll when wearing a textile jacket, jeans, helmet, gloves, and boots while going 55-65 MPH.

And for the added info: explain your choices.

I've been in 3 totaled motorcycle accidents


1) 2006 Kawasaki 636:: I was about 1/4 mile from home and a drunk driver hit me head on.. I do not remember how it happened I just remember getting up then collapsing the guy got out of his red keep with a milwakees best and told me I did a perfect roll over his jeep... I cracked my sternum broke an ankle and 2 ribs

2) 2007 GSXR 750:: I was clipped by a city bus and I slid on my hands and ass... Only got road rash on one butt cheek, my wallet kept the other cheek from damage lol

3) 2005 GSXR 1000:: I was practically t-boned by a lady pulling out making a left from Burger King and I hit the front of her SUV legs were both hyperextended bruised stomach wall bruised heel bones fractured my hip and a concussion.

But.... If I had the choice of tuck and roll or slide I'd prefer the tuck and roll just because that way my gear/clothing wouldn't be ruined and I could still wear them another time.

I basically have been in all three scenarios so you deffinatly have to ride always assuming your going to crash which I don't enjoy so I listen to music

If you were stuffed into a barrel of crap up to your chin, and someone threw a bucket of camel snot at you, would you duck?
