    Back Protectors

    The girlfriend asked what I wanted for Christmas and one of the things I've been wanting is a new back protector. Been looking at the Forcefield Pro Sub 4 or the Pro L2 Evo... then I was thinking maybe the EX-K Harness Flight might be a good idea since it's got the built in chest protector too... then I saw the Flight+ with the additional shoulder protection that might be good for shoulder/collarbone protection... then I figured I probably wouldn't be able to fit much more than just the back protector into my suit with my ever expanding waistline and the harness might be hot(ter) in the summer. There's not a lot of room in there as it is. What are your experiences/preferences with back protectors? Think the chest and/or shoulder protection is worth it? My current one is an old Knox that I got for free with my used suit and it's getting pretty haggard.

    I can't believe that the lead rider kept it upright!

    Noobie from Marion

    Welcome, I'm also located in Marion. There is a small group of us here that race 100s and ride Mid O frequently during the summer months if you are ever interested in trying it out. I don't ride on the street much anymore... Where do you mountain bike? Alum Creek or Mohican I'm assuming?

    Might have been the best free day yet! Perfect weather and I won $50 off a PTR!

    I think it's just me and you so far... weather forecast has been off and on. As long as it looks like I'm going to get at least a few decent sessions I'll go.

    I think I lost my passion for riding

    I know it seems to be a very polarizing subject around here but maybe you should give mini racing a shot. There are many people on this board (myself included) who would let you borrow an XR100 for a day if you showed up to a practice or race. First race is also free. It's a hell of a lot of fun bangin bars with a bunch of other cool dudes (no homo) near the limit of the bike while still only doing about 30mph. You're not watching the clock, just the riders around you, and the likely hood of getting hurt is fairly low. With the XR100 you could enter 3 classes (6 races per day, plus 2-3 practice sessions) and still have a short 10-15 min break in between races.

    I think I lost my passion for riding

    Tried racing/track days? That's pretty much the only riding I do anymore. Get yourself an XR100 and come tear up the little tracks for cheap with us and a beater 600 for trackdays on the big tracks. I've been thinking about selling my street bike for a while now and upgrading my track toys...

    Mid-Ohio Track Day 9-3-18 (Labor Day)

    It was a very light day. I think there was only 26 in I group, even less in N and A.
