Wrong. Racers and trackday riders the world over are high-siding themselves to the moon on a daily basis and more often than not walking away with little to no injury and it's because of the gear. Watch MotoGP sometime.

Roadracing World magazine publishes the crash/injury stats for MotoGP every year. In 2012 there was something like 930 crashes resulting in like 27 broken bones, mostly fingers and a few collarbones. Loud pipes don't save lives but gear sure does.

Yeah, but...

I'm ATGATT, and agree that it makes a huge difference, but I also think the risks on track are very different than on the street. While the speeds are higher on the track, there aren't any cars, or hard stops (trees, concrete, etc.) so I think it changes the results a bit.

You would be correct!
I just had a high speed crash on the street that I was unbelievably lucky/blessed/whatever you want to call it, to walk/limp away from. The guy that knew me that says (after he knows I'm pretty much OK) that I really should do track days instead of riding fast on the street because it's so much "safer". I said that's it IS safer in regards to less things to STOP you when you crash, but I'll be riding even harder which heightens the likelihood of a crash, and every crash is a chance to get hurt no matter how much gear you're wearing and you could always get nailed by another bike.

I agree that track riding is probably safer overall, but a blanket statement was made claiming that gear does not prevent broken bones or internal injuries and that is indisputably incorrect. Any notion that even suggests that gear can't prevent this type of injury is misleading, possibly contributing to some really bad decisions.

Face it, if it wern't for the blind assholes driving cars, truck and motorcycles causing these accidents, the chances of us HAVING to wear all this damn hot gear (especially Me growing up in FL) would have been little to none.

just another pov
Thank you for quoting the OP .

Keep em coming joexr. Your humor is a needed addition to threads that are at many times, too boring to read.

You n0obs need to play your kiddy games down in Jo Momma where they belong. Try this childish crap down there.

Read the rules!

I DID IT!!!

And yes. I am still a childish ass. But I will quit now. And yes this was all really just in the act of stupid fun.

Take care.

And keep off my damn lawn!!!

There are three ways to get a response from me. Ask a question about BMWs, make a witty funny, or be a total ass.

Unfortunately some think a dog pile is funny, or maybe they just like fondling each other!

Being a mocking jackass just means you are mocking jackass. It doesn't mean you are clever, edgy, or cool. Being impressed with yourself doesn't mean anyone else will necessarily be impressed with you. I learned this myself the hard way, so I hope you learn also before it causes too many problems in your life. Love everyone and be humble dude. You'll be much happier and others will be far more impressed with you.

My first mistake was opening my mouth And the second was posting.if words could paint a picture you would understand. And if things could be any funnier I will say he looked just like a brother in law I have ( a good one I must say) All true and why I lost control. Seeing that 6.5' 400 pound dude with bright green shirt and then that plastic thing of a helmet swinging on the passenger pegs, shorts and no socks with crocks was a sight to see!!
I was weak and lost control. Again all true.
