None of those gears can protect you from that kind of crash. May be gears will make the rescuers do their job easier. The safest way is to use your commonsense.
By the way, I noticed that the caption said the accident occured in Japan, but I'm really sure it is somewhere in Thailand.
It does not look like Japan I agree.
But yeah, riding a motorcycle is a lot more dangerous than driving a car if both rider/driver rides/drives safely.
