If you're too lazy to click the link, I'll paste the article in the next couple of posts. [Edit: grrrr. Won't work. WTF?]

There are many more links and pages on that site with loads of info.


And if you want a more in-depth understanding of standards and testing for motorcylist protecitve clothing, this:
