Neck

I use PODS which I think are great. By the way, with all the talk about boots, braces, guards etc. in my humble opinion the Leatt neck brace is every bit as important, if not more so, than boots or braces. I finally bit the bullet in '10 and at Hillbilly Hills that year I had a BIG getoff and the first thing that touched the ground was my face If not for the Leatt my head would have far exceeded the angle (backwards) my neck was designed for. I have NO DOUBT there would be no riding with you guys now if not for the Leatt

Skid if I had the money for 500 -1000 knee protection I would ride one of those urnge bikes everyone is so crazy about.
So the search is on until then I just have to try to do the slow burn thing. How much could a new knee cost anyway Hell I have two.

etingelefunts, you have just contributed a months worth of helpful info in just a couple posts!

lots of good news on here, homecomings from abroad, homecomings back to riding, and atgatt discussions

as far as knee protection, I use these - they have saved by knees countless times, are cheap, stay put, comfortable, etc.
you put on your socks, kneepads, pants, then boots. may not provide 500 bones worth of joint protection, but they sure as hell protect your knees in getoffs.

That is what I am talking about a price that would make a KLR rider proud

We had no idea he was coming home early. In fact, he landed at Hurlburt at 0900 today and came straight here to surprise us. I had just cooked hamburgers and Conecuh Sausage on the grill, so after hugs and tears all around, he sat down to a burger, pasta salad and sweet tea.

It's a good day at my house!!
It is a good day !

You are a blessed,man Frank!

You are SO right Rick. He said I almost dropped my plate when I saw him round the corner and come into the kitchen. It was difficult but I let my wife get her hugs in first. Once I got my arms around him, I didn't really want to let go.

Once we all settled down, he had a hamburger, some pasta salad and some sweet tea. He was smiling like a fool and saying how glad he was to be back home.

I just got a call from him a few minutes ago. He and his wife made it back to Navarre. He has to check in tomorrow and then gets a couple of weeks off.

Life is GREAT!

Attention active duty or Retired Military!!;
Leatt Products may qualify for a discount if you buy direct.
I don't know if it is proper to say just how much in open forum, but keep it real... if you are the end user, and can provide proof of active duty (possibly even retired members) ,
They'll do you right!

Indeed. Most of us who hate the war still love the soldier and its not just a good day at your house, it's a good day at all of our houses when our young folks return home. Thanks to him for his service and thanks to you for enduring the anxiety of having your son in harm's way for what must seem like a very long time.

Thanks Hal.

I have some serious misgivings about our involvement in that part of the world. I oppose the war but support the warriors, who unfortunately are often simply used as pawns and implements of policy, without regard to the policy's wisdom or long term effect.

My son, like so many other sons and daughters, did what a good soldier does. He followed orders and did his job. For that I am thankful and proud.
