well the elbow armor stitched into the double front didn't work. The armor rode up and didn't sit where it was supposed to.

I bought some EVS Option shinguards (about $20) pair

They fit great and you forget you're wearing them very quickly.

Took the bike for a 40 min ride around town in traffic to get the bike good and hot. With the knee pads under Carhartts and my mesh jacket, the heat off the motor/rad was noticable but not uncomfortable. I even got a little chilled down by the water, but it wasn't exceptionally hot today either.


I think I've found my solution for my lower half. My armored shorts are on back order so I'll probly stick to the kevlar until they come in.
