Crash protection recommendations?
I know you are asking for ironwork, and there is some really good stuff out there, but . . .
I believe the best crash protection is any practice or education program that improves your skills, attitudes and defensive driving techniques. Even riders who do this on a regular basis will usually say they learned something new (or flaked off the rust) every time.
As always, ride like you are invisible. With all the munchers, texters, and otherwise flaming idiots on road lately, this advice is vital to all riders.
My US$.02 worth . . .
2008 FJR1300A - Pirelli Angel GT (Spec A) tires, RDL seat, TPMS, GPS digital speedometer (Amazon ~US$28.00).
P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
