    Crash Tested - Icon, Held , Shark, Technic, A*, Setup

    Full story here, but I can recommend any of the following pieces of kit:

    Shark RSI
    You can ask crazylegs, he also swears by Shark. And his wreck was MUCH worse than mine.




    Technic Jeans
    Good for crashing, not good for parking lot fights. I split the crotch while lifting to throw a mawashi-geri at Icarus, but there was no further damage after the wreck.




    Alpinestar padded compression shorts.
    A must if your pelvis is already held together with 14 screws and two plates)




    Held Ninja Gloves.
    Best glove I've seen for $100. Totally ninja.




    Icon Motorhead Jacket.
    This is why I'm a fan of leather, not textile.




    Setup Boots.
    Great budget boot made by Sidi... $90.


    AGATT people!

    I seriously thought it was just a popping sounds of the seams stretching. It took me a couple of check to realize that REALLY happened.

    I'm actually going to blame the wreck on that- "I was coming through the corner and the perfect breeze came through and tickled my...... OH S!Q*%*Q@!!!"

    Glad you and the bike didn't suffer too much

    I thought of you this morning when I almost hurt myself lifting my nut sack to do a mawashi-ma-taint in the shower...
