    Yup.
    Apart from head injuries, the next biggest killer is spinal trauma.
    Some of the back protectors you get as standard in leathers are a joke.
    I use an RS-Taichi one I've had for years, but a few blokes I know like the KNOX one that has shoulder straps as well as the waste strap.
    Given that 've broken ribs in the past, I wear a chest protector too.
    When I raced, I used to wear a protec ******* protector as well!
    Once you slam your ******** in a crash, you never want to do it again!
    After one practice crash on the Saturday, I couldn't get my leathers over my swollen plums on the Sunday!

    Cheery thread this, isn't it.
