Technology marches forward, and there is new, or new”ish” gear and equipment out there. So I thought it might be fun to say what new toys were dazzling our eyes, and why. Keeping it friendly, and with humor and tolerance. I keep looking at those inflation vests or jackets. The idea of instantly turning into a stay-puff marshmallow in a crash seems like a darn good idea. With the improvements in neck bracing. It seems better still. Apparently they aren’t the hot rubber suits I fear them to be. Some of the touring jacket models are getting right affordable. They have the armor too, which I *really* like having, along with the inflation bladder(s). That said, I’ve never seen them at the shows, or at any dealers or shops to try on. I’m also seriously considering replacing my Nolan helmet with a 6D helmet. For the brain trauma protection it offers. I’ve been concussed multiple times in my life, pretty severely sometimes. It’s gotten right dangerous for me to have any more. Of the 6D helmets, I’d probably go with either the ATR 1 or 2, because I really like wearing dirt type helmets. I did find a shop that had these in stock, and they seemed to fit my head pretty well. so what are you thinking about or window shopping?
