Seems a bit overkill.
Just reading the article in MCN about rider health. Does anyone actually wear full body armour for road riding? Seems a bit overkill.

It's built into my leathers so it I wear them, yes.
The armour in leathers doesn't match up to my definition of full body armour, you never see the bomb squad approaching a suspect package dressed only in motorcycle gear do you? Still, if T&M can't be arsed to clarify his terms he's not going to get a meaningful answer.

Could suggest that if you bother wearing a helmet in the expectation that it will save your life at some point - then you may as well have the armour too.
I mostly wear a helmet because I have to.
if you suffer a severe enough impact to trouble the protection provided by the helmet you are like to have a collection of other life threatening injuries.

I mostly wear a helmet so my hair doesn't get messed up.
