Did he use the context of those 3 years only? Not even close. He played it up hugely in my opinion. Same thing I’d do if I had to sell neck braces to put food on the table....

He said a motorcycle rider was dying every year, he even said “we’re talking professionals here”. No matter the era that’s just not even close to true. Have broken necks caused deaths at Dakar? Certainly, but no where near the frequency he wanted listeners ... more »

He also said a professional rider or 2 was dying every year until his brace came along which isn’t even close to true. If you read the WikiPedia link I posted, probably half or more of the motorcycle deaths weren’t even from neck injuries. Then later ... more »

Why would you want TPI on a YZ250? Do you really want to take the best 2 stroke motor of all time and make it anemic as hell? Just go buy a KTM/Husky/Gas Gas, plenty of options with TPI if you want watered down power.

Not a death every year at Dakar and not all the deaths are broken necks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Dakar_Rally_fatal_accidents

Listening now, he just said "At the time they were losing one, or even 2, professional riders every year in Dakar due to broken necks. Once we introduced the neck brace not a single one has died of a neck injury." That seems like a stretch, like I said ... more »

Hell. Yes. Now it begs the question....he's been a Honda guy for a couple decades now, any chance he gets his paws on a Red Rally bike? Does he ride a modified X like he did in Sonora? Does he go the "easy route" and get himself a KTM/Husky RR ?? It'd ... more »

I hope so too, although I think he woulda won last year if he wouldn't have won the damn prologue and put himself in a hole from the get go. I'm all in on this Klein kid too, awesome to see someone so young taking on Rally. He could have a very bright ... more »

Plan to listen today, I’ve been on the fence on neck braces for years. I don’t necessarily think they harm people I’m just not convinced they help a whole hell of a lot either. As someone who has followed Dakar for over 20 years I just don’t see a drastic ... more »

About what I figured. It’s not like before the Leatt multiple people a year were dying and now they aren’t. Dakar has always had deaths and always will. Did he mention any of the guys who HAVE died wearing it or was that conveniently left out?

I'm always shopping around for used wheel sets. If the sprocket and tires are usable for awhile that seems like a decent deal.
