just wondering if anyone ever wears a cup or has ever tried to when riding? i suffered some ...shall we say.."blunt force trauma" last year .after a few days in the hospital it definately got me thinking. sounds like a cup would be pretty uncomfortable but im wearing one this season. just wondering if anyone has tried riding with one before or if anyone makes one thats tolerable to wear when riding. thanks

No, they were uncomfortable when I had to wear them playing football. I don't think I could ride with one.

lol, I don't but I've thought about it. A couple of months ago I was braking in some new boots and having difficulty feeling the bottom of my feet. I landed a jump with my right foot on the brake pedal and instead it threw me straight into the tank. My eye's water up just thinking about how that felt!

you wore one playing football? Baseball (standaroundball) wasn't bad because you just stood around, but too much movin' around in football for the sucker to be comfortable.

I will admit, though, I took a few shots to the grapes when I played, and I don't lament the steel tanks going by the wayside on dirt bikes either. I don't think I had a bike with a steel tank that was not "christened" with a couple special dents.

ive never really tried wearing one while riding. ive worn one at taekwondo, but you need it for that. if you do end up wearing one, its going to be really uncomfortable.

I was a catcher when I played base ball, and a center for football. I never could make myself wear one of those contraptions.
