I test out a leather suit - the hard way
Don't try this at home - it hurts
Footage/photography - oversteer photography
I've had this weird idea for a while, one of those ideas that doesn't go away and gets worse on a drunken Friday evening out.
This idea ended in an email to the guys at ARMR Moto who provided me with one of their Harada one-piece suits. They were happy to let me wreck it for the purposes of very scientific testing. Or being dragged behind a car until I screamed like a girl...
I saw a journalist called John Cantlie doing this a few years ago and he complained about heat in the crotch area. I can confirm this was an issue. Apart from that the suit performed brilliantly with no major injuries to the groin or anywhere else.
Visit www.armr-moto.com for a look at their range.
Warning - the following stunts you are about to
see were performed on a closed, private road.
Do not attempt this yourself, whether wearing
protective equipment or otherwise.
(even in leathers, it still hurts!)
