Re: The good the bad & the ugly
I've always had a one piece set of leathers and a good quality helmet, the leathers have saved my skin from a couple of 30-40mph lowsides that would have taken my skin off.
I always fit R&G crash protectors to the frame, front & rear axles which have also kept repair costs to under £250 to put it perfect again. I love my bike and my skin but have no qualms about pushing my bike to the limit of my capability, I go through a pair of knee sliders every year and normally 2 rear tyres and a front.
I don't understand people who ride in shorts and t-shirts, even if i'm just popping down the shops I'll at least put my timberland boots on and my Dainase leather Jacket. (Helmet and gloves go without saying)
