  1. This is a rather philosophical question, there are probably several different schools of thought - If you live/lived in an urban area do you think that the benefits of wearing visible safety gear when riding outweigh the risk that in some eyes you may look like more of a target if wearing lots of visible safety gear? Personally, I think that you do have to take into consideration how other groups in your environment may perceive you and "blending in" is an important part of being street smart. Other than ankle/shin guards I don't normally wear protection when riding (which normally takes place in parks/skateparks), and this was also the case when I used to Skateboard. I would say that I am pretty competent in understanding the limits of my wheel (which I check regularly and do preventative maintenance on) and don't tend to ride faster than I am prepared to fall at; I am also good at bailing. I do wear a helmet when I go off-road (which is normally outside of urban areas) or when riding my bike and will also wear one when I start teaching my toddler to ride a scooter.
