Since I got the bike, many of my friends (none of them ride) have said that wearing all the gear isn't cool..... but I like my skin, beautiful it may not be, but it's the only one I have. It's great to see experienced riders advice gear & encouraging to a newbie.
That's good to hear that you're going to route of wearing your gear. Just keep that going, and in a few months don't give in to you "buddies" and stop wearing it. Nobody plans to have an accident, so you never know when it's going to happen.
