I have off road friends who use Kenda and like them but my racing buds swear by Dunlop. Pirellis look interesting though.

Added reply in a thread Is upper body protection required anywhere ? 6/29/2015 1:38 PM

I doubt that neck protection will ever be mandatory in SX/MX. Not sure about Italy but for sure Sweden requires a spinal protector.

Adding to the legacy for sure. Missing the start at Budd's was another entry.

Thank you for the standards Michael. The longest journey begins with the first step and while there is always room for improvement with everything I'm glad it appears the FIM is being proactive on upper body shells. To the FIM bashers knock yourselves ... more »

No blame to take. No one is forced to click on a thread. Two things: 1) See where these qualifying races are held at in Belgium. BRP Rotax has a great series and they know how to market their engine packages with these world class Gran Finals. 2) Search ... more »

"i would assume this new rule was persuaded by the companies that make protective gear, it's called lobbying." The first time I used the word assume in my first job as an Inside Salesman working in an office the owner of the company pulled me into his ... more »

I'm so incredibly glad that people who can't read have no say in this sport.

Where is Shenzi Rubani when you need him? Without researching it my assumption is CE approval for chest protectors will suffice. To the larger question do you think any of today's gear manufacturers products for chest and back protection AKA shells would ... more »

Neck braces.....Luongo......way to attempt to divert the topic guys. Knee jerk? How many decades need to pass before updating 40 year old standards? Hats off device is a bad thing now? You can't make this stuff up.

FAIL How many racers in MX2 and MXGP pay for gear? This ruling is about decreasing injuries not increasing chest and back protection sales.

Logic and truth have no place on a MX forum but you had me at "awesome idea." Unfortunately common sense is a rare commodity in our sport. What other sports do you have mixed skill levels participating at the same time, poor flagging, equipment on the ... more »

When did Lemoine ride for YoT? I must have missed that.

From what a buddy of mine who knows RV told me this "hard to reach" deal is classic RV and started well before RV went to MXGP so I wouldn't read too much to it right now
