I recently totaled my Kawasaki ZX-6R while canyon carving on the fantastic roads surrounding San Diego. Fortunately, I was wearing full leathers, gloves, boots, back protector and a great helmet, which I credit with saving my life (I hit headfirst). Unfortunately, I still managed to fracture two vertebrae in my back and herniated a disc in my neck, which required surgery. Even though I am still recovering, I am rabidly perusing magazines and Web sites for my next bike (Ducati 1098 perhaps!) and new gear. While online, I discovered the Leatt Neck Brace developed by a neurologist from South Africa that could have prevented my neck injury and also learned that BMW and KTM are developing a similar device. Has any of your staff tested these devices? Do you have any information on similar products or know when BMW/KTM's will be available for purchase?
