Thanks for the reply,
Well, I have leathers, and I know they are the best in this area, I myself have layed down 2 bikes, both someone elses fault, luckily not at incredible speeds... the first time i was wearing a t shirt, light pants, no gloves, and no helmet... and it is still amazing to this day that i didnt whack my melon... but the road rash was awful, burned my hands along with both shoes coming off, ... odd, but i hear this happens often with shoes that dont go above the ankle very much...so now i Always wear the helmet and much more securable shoes, and jeans. honestly i do sometimes just wear a t shirt for a top, but not often,,,
as i see your in FL, then you know what i mean about the heat and humidity...
I was about to get some of that mesh gear, but after seeing some pics of it after some crash and burns.... i'm not quite sure about the mesh stuff now. sure its better than nothing.
I do however like the fact of having some type of "hard" armor at those delicate points of the knee and that area, as even compared to leathers, the impact absorbtion is much better.
I might just end up getting some perforated leather, but I already have 5 leather jackets...... HMMM, anyone ever perforated thier own leathers????
