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
