That's a good report. I'm very glad you're essentially fine. Its a hard lesson isn't it?

I found this quote in your write-up particularly interesting:

"I was mostly satisfied with the performance of my gear. But I donít think that those little conveniences I achieved by removing some uncomfortable armor were worth the price."

You were geared up a lot better than most scooter riders, yet you still found out how much sacrafice was involved with the compromises. When I bought both my mesh and my non-mesh pants, the one thing that I required was hip armor. It amazes me how few have it. Even Aerostich makes it an option and its one that most riders don't take. After my crash, I'm very glad it was one thing I didn't compromise. It makes a difference.
