If you're trying to be a jackass , yes.
Diesel spill in an intersection in Pahrump Nevada, Had Knee Guards with padding, Making the left turn with a green light, I was down so fast, it was surreal. My knee, the brush guard, and rear luggage rack equally took the hit, and after 2 guys picked up the DR for me, I was left with torn Levi's AT THE KNEE, and a small bruise on a hip. Now figure, what hits first,----your knee.
I didn't go to a Doctor or miss a days work. Sold on knee protection.
Road rash hurts more than bruises.
Your post is equally helpful to shelbird's question.
Custom molded ear plugs will be the most comfortable (when done correctly, not at a stand during a MC rally), but have no personal experience with them. They can also be designed with a very high Noise Reduction Rating.
I use disposable foam plugs and I like the Moldex Purafit (NRR 33) the best, after that I like the slightly "louder" but even more comfortable Howard Leight Max (NRR 30).
When touring, I use the Howard Leights when my ears begin to get painful after wearing the Purafits the whole day for several days straight.
You could buy an assortment pack (Earplugstore.com) to find out which style you like.
Bad road-rash hurts more than broken bones.
I know this!
And for a much longer time too.
I was happy when the thread moved to another page so I didn't have to scroll through your carnage again.
I've had enough similar injuries that I wince when I see shots like those. :eek1
Hope the remaining drippy spot gets healed up for you soon.
Because they are not playing football. You will note that in the study about the Peltzman effect, the two groups were participating in the same activity. Comparing concussion rates from two different sports and attributing the difference to anything other than the fact that they are different sports is so far outside of sound scientific and statistical methods it's laughable.
Welcome to the wild, whacky world of Vertical C where unrelated things are dubiously related (in his mind) and then offered as scientific fact.
There has been some speculation his parents may have been closely related as well. :huh
Personally, I don't believe it, but it made a good punch line.
That raises the question: Why?
When someone so adamantly defends atgatt... shouldn't he have not suffered such injuries? Or at least only once and then not again?
I can understand that there are people that for some reason don't want to ride with ATGATT, but saying that gear does not help is rather stupid IMO - it doesn't always help, but when it does it's worth it
Who said something like that?
Anyone who says it's overrated?
That's a very very weird interpretation.
Four on road contaminate induced crashes here and my "ATGATT" Performed beyond expectations in each instance.
(A small amount of bruising and a few days of Ibuprofen for the sore Muscles...)
I think you have that covered.
FUCK YOU , who the hell are you.
One to three noteworthy motorcycle crashes (2 times as an unexpierienced teenager, 1 time snow) and two noteworthy car crashes (ice, inattentive because of going too slow) here, and every time my "no more gear than needed" (counting the seatbelt as gear) performed well as well.
Maybe a twisted ankle one time so it hurt a bit in physical education next day, that was all, needed no drugs. (Well, besides in one case making a dent in the front passenger's door and damaging the brake pedal and the centre console - however, the car was totaled, so that didn't matter.)
How do you know what "no more gear than needed" is in advance?
