Couple of questions...
Do you guys wear some armor under your jackets? Say elbow pads? shoulder pads? Or the armor that comes with the jacket is enough?
The same goes for your pants, what do you wear under them?
All the time I see riders come and go with their gear on, but I can only see the outside and I always wonder what is under all that stuff.
I usually ride with:
My jacket that has some soft armor
My pants are built pretty tough but the protection is close to zero, I am trying to find some decent priced knee and shin protectors.
SO what do you guys wear
thanks, if this has been discused I would appreacie direction towards a useful thread, I could not find anything very specific
Wear what you would wear if you knew you were gonna crash. Plan for the event.
For instance, I would never waste $$ on knee protection unless of course I would be needing my knees in the future!
Great topic! I don't want to crash in my current gloves so I guess it's time for an upgrade. Thanks for rattling my cage.
