Shoei X-Eleven Crash Test Review
I had the opportunity to crash test my Shoei X-Eleven, it was not on a motorcyle. I was riding a go cart around in the parking lot and thought it would be a good idea to do some drifting. My mistake was that I started my drift too late or I held the drift too long, either way I ran out of parking lot. I ended up flipping the go cart and skiding along upside down on my head for a good 20 feet. There was a roll bar on the go cart and I was buckled in. The shield broke off and the outer shell was badly scraped. I took a hard hit to my shoulder and knee but my head came through without injury.
I have bled more blood, had more scrapes and scars on go carts than any motorcycle I have ever riden. I can honestly say that I am an extremely safe motorcycle rider but put me in a go cart and I lose all common sense and reasoning, I become fearless, wreckless, and insane.
