another question... do you guys that do own back/spine protection ever wear just the back protector over a regular shirt? i see a lot of guys do that and i dont know if it looks squid or looks cool... i think it looks pretty good
i only wear the spine/back protector for track days, on the street the leather jacket armor protection is sufficient. i don't think it's squidly to just wear a spine/back protector under your shirt, but you should really invest in a good motorcycle jacket.
yea..i'd wear protection for your skin too. just a back protector helps protect you from pwning your central nervous system, but pwning your skin hurts more.
and if you somehow beef it enough to hurt your back, you'll probably be getting potential rash too. so...i'd always wear a jacket. the only squidly thing is the fact that you arent wearing a jacket for protection of anything other than your back.
i think i said that in the most complicated/longest way possible, but that's how i roll.
