Today it has been exactly 5 weeks since I collided with a truck in Colorado and really our last blog post on our site. I think it’s about time to start writing and that means start riding motorcycles again. I am changing how I ride beginning with the addition of more protective gear. Today I want to tell you about the Leatt Knee Brace Protection for motorcycle riders.
I road my KTM 690 about 100 miles yesterday, all pavement but still fun twisty mountain roads. This is only 4 weeks after fracturing my left radius (wrist) and left tibia/fibula (knee) and tearing most of the ligaments that hold my knee together off the tibia. How could I ride? Two things: 1- the bones are healing nicely, 2- I bought a exoskeleton brace that hold my knee very stable but allows movement needed to ride a motorcycle. Most motocross riders wear a knee brace and if I would have been wearing one I might not have such severe injuries.
So time for a product review.
