Watching too much walking dead around here. Shit. If I lived somewhere that I thought I would have to shoot at something other than a game animal, I would move.

Let me know if you figure it out. My speed is kmh but its hard to relate to bar. Ballpark is to add two zeros and divide by 7. 2.1 bar = 210 kpa / 7 = approx 30psi.

I have BMW lower crash bars. I would like to avoid the $400 and the extra weight of uppers if they are not needed. Anyone here think uppers are a must, or will the wide lowers protect enough?
