I came back to work on Monday and when having a coffee with a work mate he told me about an off his brother had just before New Years. To keep it brief, whilst travelling in the right hand lane a moron with no licence attempted a U turn from the left lane causing the bike to T bone the car and the rider was thrown over the vehicle. Apparently he has had surgery and just got out of hospital but is receiving daily care for badly broken wrists, and damaged knees. As well as this the rider also has lost a fair bit of skin on his legs because his draggins tore from knees to hip. Apparently the rider or one of his family members contacted draggins and they were told they only provide protection from fire. Is this to be expected in a crash where the estimated speed of the rider is 60kmh? My understanding was that draggins should provide some abrasion resistance before tearing - which is why I commute in them and save the leathers for the weekend. Has anyone experienced something similar and would the rider have a claim against draggins. Cheers.
