Our bodies have evolved over millians of years to survive incidents to us that happen no faster than we can run and even then we can cause serious injury to ourselves.

So anytime we are artificially moving faster than our legs can carry us, ATGATT protection is wise.

My friend suffered similar abrasions when he fell off his bicycle wearing just tee shirtband shorts.

Meanwhile, this guy walked away from a track day high side after a mechanical failure.
