And keep them soft and sweet.

Michnus is home!  He is doing a lot better and sends his thanks for all the messages.  He will soon join the debates on helmets, neck braces and bikes.  ::)

The last x-rays that were taken yesterday showed a fracture on his top left rib and a small hemothorax.  The doctor was happy for him to re-coupe at home.  +-6 weeks of taking it easy ...

Here is some pics of his gear.  We will be replacing it with the same!!  They did the job well!

The gloves - only damage to one:


The pants - ripped on the pocket exactly where the hip pad should have been ...


The jacket, BMW Traveller:




The helmet came off the worst, but for sure did the work.  Michnus has not, although he is still on pain tablets, complained of any headaches.  The doctors was amazed that he came off that light.  His reactions and reflexes was almost back to normal within a couple of hours.  The bruising is looking a lot better today.

+1 on the ATGATT, without it that would have been a much more serious incident.

They were in traffic so 60kph (big ? mark as that is all i know).  That Uvex certainly broke up a lot.  I assume it takes a lot of energy to break it like that = energy that would have been transmitted to his skull if it had not broken.
