Only motorcycle specific full leathers or synthetic, top to bottom, at highway speed most of the time, so therefore in 5th.

Whatever gear keeps me away from the ball-numbing seat buzz around 4,200 RPM...  ;D :D

Of course the problem with synthetic, as I discovered today, is that it melts if it touches a hot exhaust.....good job I was wearing high boots underneath.

Edit: Ooops, sorry, I forgot that this is a gear thread, not an apparel thread.
