Try that enough and you'll be dragging your knee, leg, elbow, arm, back etc etc

The streets are greasy, cloverleafs being the object of many leaky vehicles in a concentrated place probably the worst.
Like others said, not the best way to enjoy cornering a motorcycle. GP riders excluded.
I hear the conversations at rest stops and gas stations. Peer pressure from guys with giant chicken strips should not be considered good advise or riding tips.

If for nothing else extra knee protection,but yeah way to pricey. I can see those Velcro straps giving out pretty quickly with regular use.

Asphalt curb.

Yep, cracked ribs and totalled bike.

Good luck!
That and the not-biker-friendly railing. There is one very nice, long swooping clover leaf near where I live. I am nowhere near scraping anything on it going 45, not interested to know how fast I should go though it to drag my knee

Unless you scrape the top of your helmet, you ain’t trying hard enough.

I am a ham radio operator. We have a saying: if your tower breaks down in a storm, it was not strong enough. If it stays up, it was not high enough.

I am sure there is a motorcycle cornering equivalent

Actually if you watch the review vid on revzilla the guy has some on over some dark riding jeans, and they don't look all that bad. I think the target for these are ease of use. The guy riding 5 or 10 miles to work that normally wouldn't take the time to dress out in full gear could slap these on in a few seconds and at least have some protection.
But as I said in post #25 way to pricey.
Also to a non motorcyclist all gear looks goofy so that argument is moot.
I wouldn't buy them but it is exactly what he asked for in his original post.
