I think I should crash more often. My insurance company paid me 1155 Euros, so I can get new gear. :cheers

I bought a new X-Lite X-802 helmet for 300e, a used Astar rh glove for 20e and suit's repair cost is around 70e.




Arai is going to be my spare helmet.

funny or not, as in your last picture, my A-star glove teared apart exactly on the same spot in the tumb area in my crash. It seems a pattern to me. Maybe it's time to get my gloves from a different producer :dunno

I'm probably going to buy Knox Biomech gloves in near future. Astars broke exactly like Brian says in his Biomech review video. :)

Today when I get home I will post a picture of the glove, to see it. Did you have any injury in the palm? That hole seems pretty big to me :)

I have watched your videos several times now and the way the other bikes pull away on you is noticeable. I don't think is the bike obviously and you ride great, seen that you catch them in turns. On the other hand, my impression is that you arrive at WOT too soon, which could mean that 1). your gearing is too short; or 2). the ecu is reading low WOT numbers (throttle position) or 3). that you upshift gears too early and thus lose from the powerband. :biggrin

I may be totally wrong here of course. But I had a similar problem after playing unknowingly with my bike's TPS settings.

Damn jk750 time to invest in some rs taichi or knox gloves that have the scaphoid sliders. At least you weren't hurt too bad.
