The pins are not the least bit harmful, when everything is operating within it's proper parameters. But, the old saying "Dress for the fall, not for the ride" rings a bit of truth when sliding leather side down across the asphalt at any speed. I certainly wouldn't want to have those pins stuck in my vest between me & the road surface. They heat up, they poke, & they generally don't do anything to help you stop.gat803 said:It looks to me like the author of this site is an alarmist.
He lost me when I read his rant about how dangerous the decorative pins on the front of a leather vest are to your well being. :roll:
