Re: Two piece Leather suit less safer than 1 piece?? (kam1996)
While it's been close to 10 years since I've been down before that I laid it down hard 3 times. First time I had my leather jacket bungee strapped to my back seat
I was lucky and the only thing I jacked up was my knee as it was trapped under the bike as we low sided a turn. Second time, I had my jacket and used my knee's to sand down the rough pavement. 3rd time in a "panic" stop grabbed too much front brake...... wheel locked sending me over the handle bar landing on first my head then my shoulder, tore my helmet and jacket up.
So whats my point.......... at least for street riding I would say 2 piece is fine no matter how they attach as I've never suffered any kind of road rash on anything but my limbs wearing no leather pants at all, had I worn some form of full leathers my knee's would be much happier.
Currently I have a two piece suit I wear 95% of the time and while it's never been road tested I have know doubt it will save the skin on my ass
