Default WEAR CHEST PROTECTION!

Hit a wind trough last night that sent me chest first into the bars. Didn't break anything, thanks to the chest protection. It's going to be a very long painful next few weeks but i have no doubt that without it I would have been in a chopper again. Ride safe and wear ALL of t:he gear!

Always.... reminded why when I look at the dents on my race vest...

Racing? Tekvest on...


On the track with a camera? Tekvest on...

Got one thanks to BCR. Held the hand of a friend as he died from his sledding injuries, not wearing a vest. My son and I will not ride without them now.

Had both of my sons get hurt (ribs) with no chest protection and I have had at least one saved day with chest protection three years ago, so we all ride with protection now. We all three found the BCA MTMPRO at the Denver Snow Show last fall and besides the protection offered, they are a warm mid-layer and not too warm for spring riding either.
