I need to borrow a chest protector, TODAY!!

If anybody has a chest protector I could borrow for Daytona, I would be greatly appreciative. I leave for Daytona tomorrow and was just told that a chest protector is a VERY good idea when riding the banking at Daytona.

I will not be on the PC much today, please give me a call at 630.430.7449.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Ron, you can tape a feminine pad on the tank where your chest contacts it. I never did it as I always enjoyed the little sternum bruising from the banking, but it was common at one time before all the "high tech" more expensive methods.

I may do that just because it would make a GREAT story for the grandkids.

Still needing a chest protector, any live in the western suburbs have one?

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
