I don't think I could risk it. I was rear ended on my drz some years ago and if I didn't have a full face it would have been awful. First part of me that hit the ground was the face of my helmet. I would right now have a badly scarred face at minimum and instead all I got was chipped teeth from a mouth full of asphalt that the helmet gathered as it dragged across the ground.
