This year at the 2015  Pramac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix down at Phillip Island, former MotoGP champion, Mick Doohan, was part of the Spokes ambassadors 'Legends on Two Wheel's', alongside Troy Bayliss, Wayne Gardner and young gun Remy Gardner.

Spokes sat down with Mick to talk about the importance of protective gear and it was great to hear that even the legends of the sport understand the need for all the gear, all the time.

"To have an accident on the street is bigger than having an accident on the racetrack, that's for sure," Mick said.

Of  243 people killed on Victorian Roads in 2013, 41 of them were riders and passengers of motorcycles; that's 17% of annual road deaths. Find out more about motorcycle crash statistics here.
