no question. SLIDE!

I've never crashed on the street before and don't do much street riding anymore. However, i've crashed enough times on the track to know sliding is much better. i've had slow, medium and high speed (170km/h) crashes. The sliding isn't so bad but and it really hurts when you hit the gravel traps and start rolling or flipping.

Just have to look at all the top racers, they are always sliding or trying to slide.

I can't comments on the textile stuff, as I never used it and don't think I ever would.

Well I was in two crashes, both with textile gear. I did one roll both times and only had some minor bruising. I prefer to roll as it will allow me to "burn" off extra speed and stop movement faster. Even in leathers I would rather roll.

if you have to ask this question.... you havent crashed enough yet.

I would ALWAYS rather take a slide in protective gear, then roll... i doubt anyone that has done both would argue. lol

I've haven't gone down yet and almost met the pavement the other day. This is what sprouted my question.

Is the thread topic "fucking stupid?" Maybe I should make a retarded thread about a dog I aqquired. Wait a tic, that's already been done by someone.

so you believe acting like a wheel stops you faster then acting like a giant brake... interesting.
would you next like to elaborate on how beating your arms and legs into the ground over and over is more comfortable then only hitting them once?

Haha that wasn't directed towards you MrDude. It was directed towards TYSTYX. You actually contributed something towards my question.

I know, but it was too funny of a comment to pass up.
