Dear Aerostich, I recently had a low side accident in the North Georgia Mountains. I was riding on Hwy 19/129 near Neal’s Gap, on Blood Mountain. I was exiting out of a right hand turn and touched some Oil/Diesel in the road. The next thing I knew, I was sliding on my back behind my motorcycle. It has been nearly 500,000 miles since I have had a major crash on a street bike, but I always wear the proper gear when I ride (Helmet, Boots, Gloves, and Aerostich Suit). I have always wondered how the Aerostich suit would protect me in the event of a crash, but have never really wanted to test it! Since I am now a Crash Dummy for Aerostich, I can speak from experience. I did not have a scratch or bruise on me! The Suit worked as advertised, it is heavily damaged, but it will be cheaper to repair or replace than my skin would be. Thank-you for making such a quality piece of gear, I have always been a good spokes person for your company, but will be even more so in the future.
