I did get a couple small rips in my leather, which was over 10 years old, and probably not taken care of as well as it should have been. Some of the inside stiching pulled apart from the lining too. Few stiches and it was good to go, though I never tested it. Due to global warming it shrank in the hot sun.

foreign lands and alien birds, hear stories that no ones heard-D.A.D.
Helmets are like rubbers, you know you should wear one, but its so much better when you don't-Me.
