    DO NOT GET ONE OF THOSE. They dont do jack ****, they are made for motocross riders to be protected from dirt and **** that gets flung up by tires. They wont protect you in a crash in any kind of way except if you slide for a long way, it would obviously protect a little from scrapes. I had one, dont get it.

    those work well, but Id rather have some body armor. those are designed more for roost protection as well, but theyll stop your spine from snapping over a rock in most cases Id guess.
    Dont PM me.

    Roost is the dirt that a motocross bike's rear tire sprays up. Rocks and other debris can be easily lifted in the air and shot at the rider behind, hence the need for "roost protection"
