Jgracey,

Did you used to work at Owens Motorsports as a mechanic?

Just an idea.What about a small front facing only Kevlar vest? I had an oem Sea Doo Kevlar racing vest and it was very comfortable.

Default Riders with a Pace Maker?

If damaging it due to impact is a concern there are chest protectors out there that have an actual CE rating and would do a good job of protecting that area. Example would be the Leatt/Fly chest protectors. The adventure series and the 5.5 are both very good chest protectors and can take one heck of a hit.

Or as stated above you can look into Kevlar. Moto-vest comes to mind but they are expensive!

I'll have to look into those options. Good protection is a must.

I think you and I met a few years ago. I'm not 100% for sure where, but my name is Neal Haarman and I used to live near St. Elmo, IL. Ring any bells?
yep, I bought your 2004 KTM 250 from Mattoon Kawasaki, when you traded it in. I still miss that bike!

Glad to see you are back riding. I spend most of my time riding with my older two boys now, number 3 is getting a PW50 for the summer.
