Nice test... I'd like to see one where a guy or dummy is thrown off a bike or truck at highway speeds though. There's a big difference between dragging someone @ 20 mph and getting knocked off a bike @ 55-70 mph. Kinetic energy, stopping distance, and damage done to either the riding gear or body is proportional to the square of the velocity. So 60 mph is 9x more energy than 20 mph...
As for covec vs kevlar, I have no idea.
There are 2 kinds of accidents. Those where ABS would not have made a difference and those where it would have. You purchase ABS for the latter.
2012 CBR250RA all black w/ ABS, blackened muffler heat guard, P3 brake flashers TS+.
Green: reflective rim decals, LED lighting, custom "to punish and enslave..." lettering.
Riding gear: Icon Contra Mil-Spec Hi-Viz & HJC CL-16 helmet
Planned: Upgrade to 2017 FZ-09 w/ ABS
