    Question Let’s talk chest armor

    Hmmm . . . Why not just make it a sleeveless pullover? Do the shoulders, back & elbows also have pockets for armor? In hot weather I don't want more layers, even perforated fabric. If the shirt is capable of taking full armor then it would make sense, but if it is just a chest armor shirt...

    Well Poop. I'm motorcycle-only for the foreseeable future. I got thieved.

    Well in the case of this thread we had a theft. And I think a lot of people are fed up with crime in this country and will be, among other things, voting for some sort of crackdown on crimes. I know the DA in San Francisco, who was soft on crime, just got recalled for being soft on crime. The...

    Common sense is rarely common. Common sense solutions are even more rare. But I'm with you on this.

    Question Let’s talk chest armor

    How is it worn? Is the armor designed to attach to the inner liner of a jacket (via something like velcro)? Or is it armor that is strapped on like the off-road armor (albeit designed for road use)? Or is the armor attached to something like a t-shirt or vest that is then worn as a new layer?

    Question Let’s talk chest armor

    So can you tell us how well the chest armor actually ventilates in the summer? As much as I really want an airbag vest, I honestly am very fearful of overheating in the hot humid conditions we get in my area during July-August.

    Fuel Savings = Honda payment

    I moved out to a rural area while I was working. So I went from a 5 minute commute to 35 minutes on the highway each way. I still live out here, loving it, but if I was still working I'd be commuting on the bike every day possible. One really nice thing about the NC, in addition to being a...

    Fuel Savings = Honda payment

    Taking the thread back to the original topic of saving enough fuel-money to make a bike payment this is the way I see it on my typical driving My Jetta TDI gets an honest (combined) 38 mpg. My Audi TDI/APR gets an honest (combined) 34 mpg. Diesel costs about $0.10 to $0.15 more in my area than...

    Question Are Arai actually safer?

    Honestly just wearing a properly fitting decent quality helmet probably is the key point. Will Arai (or Shoei or Scheuberth or any other ultra premium brand) save your life BETTER than a reasonable quality well fitting helmet? Probably not. One my offer more comfortable materials. But when...

    You should watch the documentary/film entitled WHAT IS A WOMAN? Some guy asks professors, doctors, protestors, people on the street that very questions. Never realized before watching that film that there were so many very confused people. But clearly your definition does not match that of...

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    NO PAIN this morning. No meds for pain, over the counter or prescription. Balance while walking seems pretty close to normal, leg strength seems to be better. Hand, arm & shoulder strength seems a bit lower than I'd like to go riding but it is getting close. The question is now, will I...

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    Generally improved but only to a point. If I over-do it, it hurts. If I don't do anything, it hurts. Felt good enough to do some house painting today, I have specific pain in my right hand, wrist, arm and shoulder because I was painting with my right hand. So clearly I over did it. Typically...

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    Woke up at 5:45 this morning. A little stiff. But no need for prescription pain meds. I did take 600mg of Advil, more to stay ahead of pain than to calm any pain. Also took my weekly 1/2 dose of arthritis meds. The other 1/2 dose will be taken this afternoon. It is a new regiment for me...

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    That is my preference but high dose advil wouldn't even take the edge off the discomfort lately. Small glass of bourbon at bedtime helps too. Lately its been wake up, take a pain pill, then coffee. Another pain pill at lunch. Another at dinner. Normally I'll take 3 pain pills A MONTH. Now...
