Yeah its grafty/bandage stuff pretty sure. I think if your body cant organise a scab for that size of graze, you need some artificial help.

Isn't it a pain in the ass when you go anywhere?

EDIT: Kevlar leggings? serious? where where where?

here's a thought 'clever' metal :p what use would kevlar leggings be on your legs that you can't use anymore cause your spine is broke.:blush:

i used to wear my back protector all the time. its an arm through each loop and a belt around your waist, dunno about you, but i rate my spine pretty high and would give the extra 10 seconds for my back every time.

He was actually commenting on it being a pain in the arse to have to carry the BP around with you when you arrive at your destination.

It's one of those things CM, the law makes you wear a helmet, but other than that the protective gear you wear is up to you. Every single piece of protective gear ever designed is a pain in the arse once you get off the bike, so it's up to you to decide where the line is. Worth it or not?

Every single person who has ever crashed without a back protector and hurt their spine no doubt wishes they had one on when they came off, but you don't often get a lot of forewarning before you crash, so you need to either be prepared or be lucky. Which one do you want to be? :D
