For many they are but I think some only make you do it if you ride Intermediate or Advanced. However, I would recommend getting one anyways as they serve there purpose. I actually wont ride without a back and chest protector on the track. I got mine through www.indysuperbike.com and they were Bohn

Hey thanks for the link, I was thinking about picking one up this year anyway, but it was another expense I didn't really want to shell out if I didn't have to... (I have to research these carefully so they don't get caught up on my damn g-strings!) LOL

Expense of a back protector is a lot less than a funeral or paying to be in a wheel chair for the rest of your life.

I don't know if its mandatory, but its something that trackday organizers and track owners on a one/one basis decide.

I always wear one

Some of the track organizations out here require a hard shell back protector...I went out and bought a Dainese that you strap on....

When I went down at SOW doing 100 mph, just got up and walked away....

My trackday organizer doesn't have that rule.

Your problem would be solved if do what I do and just go commando. mmm...leather on bare skin feels so nice. :crackup:

Hey Speedy - where in Melbourne are you at - I'm from there!

Thanks for the input guys, I've been looking further at them and have seen some nice ones... Older Guy, the Dainese ones at my shop look like something out of Alien!!!!
