Ok, well then.... maybe I will get one and try it out.... and yes I do bottom out my suspension and it is setup right.BuzZz wrote:I would argue that with you, Jordan.
Your body still recieves major internal accellerations(and that can tear organs loose inside, causing what feels like sore gut muscles)) from riding, no matter what your suspension is like. It also supports and protects your lower back, even more so in a crash.
You can't tell me you never bottom the suspension (you should be bottoming once in a while or it's too stiff)..... and no offence, but the suspension on a DRZ-S is hardly state of the art.
I rode till I was 16 without one. When I did start wearing one, I was surprised at how much better I felt the next day and how much longer I could ride before I got tired. And the crash benifits are substantial too.
