SEAT-OF-THE-PANTS LES­SON

Cycle World - - Intake -

Sorry, Mr. Hoyer, but better you than me (Up Front, Septem­ber). Push­ing lim­its while en­joy­ing your “high-fly­ing biker sta­tus” that dam­aged ma­chin­ery and, ap­par­ently, well-cho­sen safety gear… I im­me­di­ately thought of the chaps I reg­u­larly wear as pro­tec­tion as use­less in the type of slide your ass took on the racetrack.

Thank you for the ad­di­tional les­son on stick­ing to a rid­ing plan instead of go­ing with seat-of-the-pants feeling when push­ing for low lap-time num­bers. I am con­tem­plat­ing buy­ing more leather, just in case. Dainese prod­ucts have seemed ex­pen­sive to me in the past, but walk­ing away might be…price­less. PHIL MOYAERT CYCLEWORLD.COM
