The second one was with the work truck but the first one totaled my V-strom and was the reason I looked at this gear in the first place. Laying in the hospital with a crushed chest makes you very contemplative.

Now that more of this gear is around there is for sure going to be some accident reports filtering in.

I suspect these tether types are not going to help in all cases but will be a huge help in a lot. The nice part of the vests is they go overtop all your regular armor.
