You need the leatt road brace. Nun of the dirt one should work for you. They will limit you being able to look through turns. You will have to get used to wearing one. I use one for the dirt. I would not bother with the neck rolls.

I can use my dirt model with a motard but it was too limiting on the street bike.

I use a neck roll...not sure how much protection it actually gives, but it does give a bit of peace of mind.

I use a Leatt for dirt and won't ride without it. I tried on the street and it limited my vision when hunched over a tank. It didn't fit with my leather suit either.

If you can get one to work for your riding, I would certainly suggest one. It took me maybe a handful of throttle to get used to it.

I've worn the Leatt brace for about 3 or 4 years now. I won't go on the track without it and I wear it often on the street. I have zero issues with it restricting my vision or movements. Best of all, I've had 2 fairly bad track crashes with helmets that have been destroyed and have had no neck injuries whatsoever, not even a sore or stiff neck. I highly recommend it.

Did you have to replace it after your wreck?

all this talk about braces... i just ordered a leatt STX, hope it feels and works like Paul's... but then again, I hope i don't have to find out about anything but the feel of it...I currently wear a neck roll and it does not bother me.

Obed, if by a neck roll, you mean a foam collar, I've talked to doctor friends who say that is more likely to actually cause more neck damage during a wreck because it causes the head to "pivot" (my words) atop the collar.
Their comments kept me from going that route.

Yes, you're welcome to try it and no, there's nothing to it that is damaged by a fall. OK, it does have a small scratch on it, but it's not like a helmet that is "totalled" after a crash.

my leatt stx neck brace came today... i got the 2xl and it seems to fit right with the pin installed that came in from the factory.. there are 3 additional pin sizes if it needs to be adjusted...
pretty simple straight forward concept... this is the first one i have actually seen...
will be trying it out at the TMGP races this weekend so next week i will tell you how it worked out.
