Just do what Soup Can Racing did at the cyclocross, run an elevated plank across a manure pit. A pitfall worthy of a soft landing

Any of you wear a pressure suit for street riding? Pros/cons?

Not for street. They lack abrasion resistance. Most street falls will be the initial falling impact then skidding unless you hit something head on or during a skid. MX armor focuses more on impact and less on abrasion. To my knowledge there's no real abrasion resistant MX armor or a street armor with a roost plate. You could wear a street jacket over MX armor if you wanted it all.

Thanks to the nice weather today, I got the WR mended from the biff I had a little while ago that holed the ignition side engine case. I replaced the case cover, gasket, and shifter. I also pounded out the crossbar on my handlebars (the aluminum bars didn't bend but they flexed, and the crossbar is steel and so it bent), and checked all the bolts for tightness.

Parts were actually pretty cheap, $76 for the cover, $4 for the gasket, and $35 for a new Driven Racing aluminum shifter.

I still need to change the oil a couple times to get all the moisture out and get out whatever shit was introduced through the hole and via my less than sterile repair technique, but it's otherwise done and oil tight.

I wear one on the way to the trails. I have an old motoport jacket that I wear over that I took the armor out of. For strictly street riding though I don't.

In hot weather, a jersey over top of a pressure suit is awesome to ride in. I disagree with danjal. Most crashes on the street - that gear will make a difference in - involve skidding, and the plastic armor of a pressure suit is well suited to skidding. Compare it to hard armor in your typical street gear, and I think it's more stout. I have no problem wearing one on the street and feeling comfortable.

I don't do much road riding,but I got the Acerbis Koerta naked for just that reason. I can wear it with mx elbow pads and a jersey when its hot or under a jacket,it fit me better since i'm "big" than the actual pressure suits I tried on.

Anybody on an old-style KLR today in Springfield? I saw you from Mental's Jeep.
Also, Competition Accessories is a big darn place
They had a used V-Strom 1k in there for pretty cheap

Good thread to read on the Koerta.

What a coincidence, I wasn't even close to Springfield today. You should have stopped by.

I hope you, momma, and the munchkins are doing well!
