Fred, thanks for posting. The information is most valuable. I just finished a 17,000 mile trip from Toronto to Inuvik, a bit of Alaska, California, Smokies and back home. Saw lots of deer and bears and had several close calls, enough that I consider myself fortunate to not have had a collision. I was wearing my Motoport Mesh jacket and when temperatures/weather allowed, my Motoport gloves. You have given me confidence that Motoport gear with quad armour and gloves will protect my skin in a "good" get off. I will be getting an airbag after reading this. One member of our group wears a neck brace, but I think that air vest eliminates the need in a better form factor plus providing chest and back protection. My pants are Klim Badlands, Generation 1. They are excellent rain gear and probably very good abrasion protection, but the armour does not provide anywhere near the protection as Motoport, so a pair of those will likely find their way into personal inventory. Thanks again for the detailed analysis of the gear, the video and healing process. It's rare to get that kind of quality information.
