Well, I'm merely responding to socko's posts in the most-appropriate manner such an insightful, intelligent, well thought-out missive deserves.

Do you lessen the risk of riding by wearing a spine protector every time you ride??? I bet not. Why?

I don't think it's a matter of "belief", it's merely what they prefer to wear on their ride. Odds are, they'll never be called to utilise that helmet.



I don't "believe in" yellow '01 Ninja 600s. I've never seen one around here; I don't believe there IS such a machine.

If any of us had a lick of sense, we'd run right out and plunk-down a wad on the best spine-protector we could find, in light of what happened to mscuddy.



The "integral" protectors in probably 90% of all jackets are not nearly enough, IMHO.

Well, they did start coming around towards the end - some neat combined-arms stuff in the last campaigns. Unfortunately, afterwards they forgot what they learned and stifled the Liddell-Harts and the JFC Fullers until the Germans taught them the same lessons, but harder.

Ha! If any of us had a lick of sense we'd be driving the biggest SUVs we could find.
