In medieval times, peasants used to wear only a small cast iron kettle turned upside down on their head as protection, when they would ride their pigs around town. The hog riders formed a tight bond, and wore pigskin vests that gave them an identity, but offered no more protection. Then the Knights came up with the bright, gaudy, hi-viz model of armor that was cumbersome, but provided much better protection and a sense of superiority over the lowly hog riders. They vowed to no longer rode swine, but upgraded to larger, beaked animals. They had local blacksmiths build crash-bars and iron boxes they could bolt to their animals, and they mounted countless torches and lanterns to the front to light their way. Thus was born the phrase "all the gear, all the time".

Everybody likes a good acronym. It's like a coded message that only other cool people like you will understand. In this case, only people that wear their armored motorcycle jumpsuit, helmet, boots and gloves just to adjust the bike's position in the garage will understand your message. They will undoubtedly give you a high-five in agreement, and when your fully gloved hands meet (because who pushes a grocery cart without gloves?) your eternal friendship will be sealed.
