That video exemplifies the reason why I look like a freakin' astronaut when I ride. ATGATT makes it uncomfortable when riding in warmer weather (which is why I'm kinda glad I live in Oregon, despite the rain) but I still wear all my gear, all the time no matter what.
Sweat is a lot easier to deal with than road rash and broken bones.
That video also shows why riding in close formation looks good in movies but may not be such a great idea on the road. You can't escape basic physics and the limits of human reaction times. Well, Tim Allen and John Travolta might be able to, but I can't.
