I watched them cut up my wife's savannah II jacket and santiago pants in the ER after a 70 MPH getoff, starting with a pavement slide and then off into the mountain brush (we about filled up the ER with dirt/weeds, etc
She also shredded the expensive gortex rain suit she had on over all that.
The ER folks were shocked when they didn't find a scratch on her. All she had was bruises.
I slid in my santiago's with hip armor and a leather foxcreek jacket with TPpro shoulder/elbow armor and the forcefield back protector that fits the jacket. I took my own stuff off in the ambulance
So just a word on BMW crash tested gear, not that I wanted to be the one to provide that
I stlll have my santigo jkt but I need a new zipper on it. I really like the BMW gear in fit, feel, comfort and nooooowwww (drum roll) CRaaaSSSHHHH PROTEctionl
Ps...I've owned several other brands over the 265k miles I have on bikes, wore areostich for years, HG (I loved that leather jkt I got free with the FZ1 I bought back in 02), first gear...but so far, BMW is the best, although I wear my leather jkt most of the time now just because I've waited my whole life for a good one.
By the way, no less than 3 rider's went out and bought more gear after they saw we had no road rash at all. The ER doc said he rode LT's for 3 years before selling it, that was cool.
