“I Was Launched Like a Golf Ball Off a Tee…”
Didn’t think that I would be reporting on the crash performance of Bohn Adventure Armored Pants so soon.
On my 2nd ride wearing the Adventures under a pair of MSR Explorer Pants, I was waiting to turn right off a side road onto well traveled country 2-lane.
A car attempting to make a left turn onto the road I was on was struck by a pickup & knocked into me. I was launched off the back of my dual sport like a golf ball off a tee. I landed on my back about 8 feet behind my downed bike.
I’m an all gear all the time guy. I ended up with a sprained wrist & a bruised bone just above my ankle. But, there were no broken bones, bruises or road rash in any area protected by the Bohn Pants.
I’m a believer, your armor works & you really don’t know you’re wearing it. Worth every penny! Leave all the armor in the pants… especially the tailbone armor.
BTW, I’ve been riding off & on road for 54 year, this was my first road accident.
