Cody, you go into details better than anyone i know. Glad your ok. When i seen the bike Saturday it looked like minimal damage until you pointed out the frame. When i watched the video at full speed it looked like you flying through air, in slow mo i noticed it was the clip on. I went down in almost the same spot in March. Great video. Watching you fast guys really puts better insight on where the actual race line is at a faster pace.

WOW.

I'm very impressed you walked away from that wreck. I'm guessing most of that attributed to the gear and a bit of luck helped as well.

Glad you're ok. ATGATT

It's the STX model. I got it through North Texas Superbikes when they were running a CMRA special on them earlier this year.

I know that Tony with House of Paint (a vendor on here) is trying to pick them up as well. I'd say hit him up first.

I just ordered the STX RR neck brace direct from Leatt.

The new RR model is $150 more than the STX, ($540!...ouch) is lighter, once size fits most, can be strapped under the arm and supposedly allows for more movement and full tuck.

I will post a review once I TD with it....hopefully not a function review.

Man...I'd love to have one that would allow for full tuck. Maybe in a few more years I'll upgrade to that model. And maybe price will come down by then...lol
