    You get what you pay for. My Clover T2 has a Knox backprotector in it.

    There's a two week enforced stand-down on your account if you start a 'goodbye KB' thread. I don't think the rule applies if you just post it as a post, though. Unfortunately.

    You haven't read the site's rules yet, have you? If you had you would know that I'm not shitting you.

    The only people who can change an original post are the original poster or a Moderator. How people choose to respond to a post is entirely up to them, as long as it's in accordance with the site's rules. People who follow threads are generally smart enough to figure out what's going on and who actually said what.

    This forum is judged by the qualities individual members contribute. Most people are generally savvy enough to spot a dickhead and will discount their contributions accordingly.

    By the way, it's a breach of the site's rules to type with the caps lock key on. I'll forgive you this once.

    I haven't got my physics text book handy, but what force is generated by a 100kg rider hitting the Earth at terminal velocity? Rough guess, less than 16,000N. Is a back protector going to save a person from such an impact? Erm, hardly.

    Forget site rules Dawg, it's just literary decency.

    It may save your back, but your organs will turn into mashed potato.

    I'd try amazon first, clothing isn't expensive to ship. Then I'd have a look at motomail.co.nz

    I don't know if they are available in NZ, but I have been using the Bull-It Covec jeans for some time now. Four trips across Australia not having to use waterproof leggings. Been through some good showers and came out without a wet bum. Even some torrential rain didn't see me getting more than a little damp in the behind. They keep out the cold in winter and heat in summer. Sitting at traffic lights in summer doesn't see me having red hot legs while waiting. Can't speak more highly of them. I'm going to get another pair as mine are getting faded now,but still doing the job.
