What to wear while riding a Moped / Vespa / Scooter?

However I do want to wear something that will save my skin if I do end up dumping the scooter. Any suggestions on what to wear to... show more I am getting myself a scooter/Moped/Vespa to save on gas around town and to/from work. While I know they are very uncool, I do not want to look like a complete idiot while riding around. However I do want to wear something that will save my skin if I do end up dumping the scooter. Any suggestions on what to wear to keep me safe, but also keep me from looking like a complete gomer? The weather here is between 60-110F
