    Default Crash safety: Big bikes and chest protectors

    Was at a michinoeki the other day and the prefectural shirobai cops were doing a PR appearance.

    They point out that (1) the smaller your bike is, the further away you will appear to the cager, and (2) chest protectors can help.

    Already got the bigger bike. Never worn a chest protector. Anyone recommend a good one?

    Anything is going to be better than nothing. My jackets have the hard inserts over each moob.

    I wear a Komine, great for warmth in winter too with a few heat pads under it.
    As good as my heated jacket and less cumbersome.

    I wear a Knox Venture Shirt. Great for warmer weather. The chest protector is sold separately, and I have it. Wear it (and the Bohn Armor Pants) every time I ride.
