When Crashing...Slide or Roll?

When you go down sometimes you don't have a choice whether you want to slide or roll. If you did have a choice, what would you choose? For both of the following scenarios, would you rather roll or slide?

1. Would you rather roll or slide when wearing a textile jacket, gloves, jeans, helmet, and boots.

2. Would you rather roll or slide when wearing full leathers, boots, helmet, gloves.

The rider is going approx. 55-65 mph in both scenarios.

Option 2: (good) leather will not bunch up as textile jackets/protective gear will. This bunching will cause the material to grab the surface which will most likely cause the individual to rag-doll all whilst it melts or wears through from friction. Leather is always the optimal choice; very predictable in wear-characteristics.

Myself and many others here on the forum are literally walking examples that leather works!

Not saying that textile gear won't save you; just that leather will likely save you from further injury.

Other views?

Sorry, I meant for the scenarios to be separate.

For example,

Option 1 i would rather slide because (x)
Option 2 i would rather roll because (x)

Sliding any day of the week! As *RJ* said: "Rolling makes bones brake".

*Hint: edit the question in your first post to clarify!

Rolling doesn't break bones lol. Being trained in the Military your trained to Roll while keeping your body as relaxed as possible when evacuating a moving anything. If your tense you are more likely to get seriously injured. Ive experienced both types of crashes lol and they both SUCK! lol

Rolling= bruises and pain everywhere
Sliding= Road rash (sucks x10) but preferred*

Ah, what were you wearing when you were in these crashes?

Be grateful for the training you received; not everyone learns that before crashing.

Slide. Always slide. Textile or leather. I prefer leather but in all actuality some of these new textiles may be better.

To the military dude... You never want to roll in a motorcycle type off. Jumping from a plane or tank is different. On a bike, it is assumed you are coming off on a smooth flat surface and you are traveling quite fast. If you roll, the centrifugal acceleration will not allow you to stay tucked. Arms, legs, head go flailing and you do break things. Road rash is always better than a cracked skull.

Slide... Always slide.

Absolutely slide. As others stated, rolling is how you break bones. I have also crashed in a textile jacket and will never wear one again as a result. Leather slides, textile bunches up and tries to roll you over.
