    FC-Moto delivered me a new leather jacket a couple weeks back. Price was too good to go pass with 40 odd % discount followed by a 10% one day special off the discounted price. Took a couple weeks to turn up - the on-line courier tracker showed very quick exit from the supplied and then stuck in Frankfurt for ten days and suddenly delivered.

    I will purchase off them again in the future.

    I too bought a jacket off FC Moto and would consider them in the hopefully unlikely event I need another.

    I've bought a few things from FC Moto. They are fine as long as you're not in a hurry. They have regular specials, so if you see something you want, get on their mailing list and wait for the right special to come along.

    It's really interesting.

    The CE standards have declined in quality over the years, as manufacturers have designed products to get better ratings, while compromising on the things that are not tested in the standard.

    I happen to like the Resurgence gear. Just not sure it's the safest in the world, as they claim.

    .
    Any concrete proof to back up the claim at all? I'd imagine the Krauts and the Japs would take issue with that. Maybe I'm getting old but generally I'm suspicious of any manufacture that states they are the best at anything. Lately I've been getting back to basics of what I actually need to be relatively safe on a motorcycle in my little world.

    Oh and I liked the Feminazi add on that site linked to from 2019.

    The standard was so high at one stage that virtually no product got 5 stars. So they reduced the standard.

    Now lots can meet the standard. They aren't any safer. The standard is lower.

    Again concrete proof that that is the case please with regard to CE Standards. Articles, blog posts etc....

    It either passes the standard or it doesn't. Same goes for aust and nz safety standards. A example is AS/NZS 1698 https://roadsafety.transport.nsw.gov...lehelmets.html I'm quite happy to wear a new halmet on my motorcle that conforms to that Standard whether it cost $250 or $2500. My current helmet has a SAI Global sticker on it so obviously conforms to that standard. As for the star thing https://crash.org.au/ratings.php All those helmets still conform to the AS/NZS 1698 Standard but non seem to have gotten 5 stars overall, When you go to each helmet you will see a breakdown of each test and you will see 5 stars in various areas of protection which gives you an overall rating.

    No dought the results will may shock some here but that is real data you are looking at.





    We obviously know USA FAA standards have dropped because of the 737 Max saga.
