You don't ride park do you? (i.e. you have never slipped off you edge off a kinked rail and slammed your tailbone/spine on a cold steel).

Having protection is not just about avoiding catastrophic injury, it really reduces the pounding your body takes and keeps you from feeling like a piece of pounded beef the next day. We didn't care about it when we were younger, but now that we have to actually go the work the next day, it beats popping advil like tic-tacs.
