The Evolution of Motorcycle Gear

What we’ve worn on two wheels from the early days to now.

Ever trawling the interwebs for motorcycle-related tidbits, we came across this motorcycle-gear infographic produced by UK-based insurance company Bennetts. It's a nice walk through time and lays down some milestone-moments in riderware. As Americans, we might have added a specific entry for the Aerostich Roadcrafter one-piece suit, but, hey, that's how we are. They did manage to get Harley-Davidson board-track-racing "kit" in there, and gave a nod to Mr. Schott (of "New York, USA") for inventing the classic motorcycle leather jacket, so we'll give the Brits a break. And they even got the stick-on rubber helmet mohawk in there. Anyway, check it out. Anything you'd add?
