Today @ MSRHouston

Noobs: Today @ MSRHouston was a great example on why you should ride ALWAYS with gear... I see many out there with that 500.00 dollar " rear " slider that many squids call a helmet hanging on the rear seat... Please know that what happened to Bubby and I + 2 others at the track today can also happen on the road... We walked away from it with minor damages ONLY bc of the gear we were wearing... PM us if you want details but I hope and pray that you all wear all of your gear all of the time... Things would have been 1 billion times worse if we had not had them on... and believe me, the same thing that happens on a track CAN AND WILL happen on the street...

You should come to the track rather than ride like that on the street.

motha F Yeah. I had my leather up in the closet since I had bought them until a month ago. The first day I wore them was OCC day and one thing I must say is after I took off that santa suit, they felt great. For one it helped block the heat that my exhaust produces right by my right leg alot better and second when you are actually riding they feel like they aren't even there. I had to check make sure I didn't freeball under my santa suit after all. I wear my suit as much as possible unless for example I am going to work or to my dads. Other than that it goes on.
