Not sure why, but I'm turning into a crasher at Warren . . . not sure it's going to get any better either. Just need to get some cheep leather before I tear my good ones completelly up. I think Miles has me beat though :)

The illusion of crashing without significant consequence makes people take more chances...My advice, buy really expensive leathers and a $800 helmet. You will not soon crash again!

I don't know if they would be any good? But tourmaster has a leather you can attach puc's. Zip's all the way around. 200ish from Dennis Kirk. Maybe?
