Wearing a helmet and body suit is good. In a crash, atleast all pieces of you are in one place and not scattered all over the road..
Seriously speaking though, a 2 wheeler crash is almost invariably disabling or fatal. Slow speed crash causes ligament injuries and broken bones and high speed ones cause cervical spine injuries and compound injuries. There is no substitute for proper riding technique.
A 2-wheeler is a serious piece of equipment and not to be taken lightly.
But all said and done, there must be a gaurdian angel who protects drunkards and motorcyclists.

so a car lover (only) once was not able to understand the idea behind wearing all the gear on a 150 / 250cc bike...when told if you want your body to hit the road / a protective layer to save you...no prize for guessing what he chose
Agree you love cars and dont think the same way you would for a bike..but safety is a common...aint it...its forms may differ but at the end thats what saves lifes.

Another great experience today at an intersection. The green light is hardly visible and I crossed the intersection during the last few seconds and the signal changed to red. There was so much traffic on the road I was not able to get to the other side and the great traffic policeman gave a go-ahead for the other traffic and it was chaos. One person just slow-jams into me and starts shouting at me that it is green, red for you blah blah. I go around him when he kicks my bike with his leg while I was leaving. Why is there so much rage on the road?

Arent helmets compulsory (and you can invite fine/challan for not wearing) all over India? In Delhi nobody rides without one. Here is Bangalore it is a different story though. I have heard its mandatory only for the driver-rider! The pillion can sit without one (its not like that in Delhi where it is mandatory for both).
I have also heard that in Bangalore it is not mandatory to wear seat belts in cars! have seen many people not wearing them here (again different from Delhi where if you are cought without wearing seat belts you get a ticket!)

If I remember correct, the helmet for pillion was made compulsory in delhi around the year 96/97. It has not been implemented in Bangalore.
