Need to shed a few pounds? Bust a couple of ribs, sure cuts down on the trips to the fridge :thumbsup:I've lost a pound a day since busting mine.

I bought one. I love it. Being an Emergency room nurse, I tend to side with caution. Seen my fair share of motorcycle carnage. What sold me on the skeletal tools vest is the protection to the clavicle, and kidney area. This was the only vest that seems to give adequate protection in those areas.

Unfortunately I tend to ride alone (difficult to find people to ride with on my free time, weekday). I try and reduce my chance of injury, by riding conservatively and wear the best safety armor I can find.

Additionally I ride with a chest protector and a 661 collar. My worse fear I life is to is to become a quadriplegic

What is your impression of over all quality? I figured I wear it under my jersey with a chest protector over the rest. I also have the collar. I'm going to get the shorts as well. I would also like one for my daughter, she rides horses in Hunter/Jumper competition. can you move as well as they say on their web site?

Unfortunately I tend to ride alone

I just got hurt on my own property, if I was alone somewhere, I would have been in a world of trouble. You carry a cell phone?

An answer to your questions,

-Quality was good

-Yes, I do ride with a cell phone; consistently monitor the reception to make sure I’m not in a ‘dead zone’.

Additionally I ride with padded shorts. Have been very happy with the Bohn. Excellent quality. A bit expensive at $85. I’ve seen the 661 advertised for $45.

So far never really needed all this armor, but I feel a bit safer with it on.

Just an idea, it was dissussed in the past was to look a hockey vests. They tend to be bullet proof, give excellent rib protection, and cost way less than motorcycle equipment. (Not much chance of tiring on hockey equipment in Hawaii)

Yep, I got one too. I also got the shorts. So far, I really like it. :D I am 6' 205 lbs. and the X-Large fits snug on me. If I was just a little bit fatter it might be a problem getting it zipped up. :D The material does stretch though. Renegade, did a nice write up on it somewhere. Maybe someone can find it and post it here.

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
