Korry Hogan �The World�s Fastest Motorcycle Drag racer- 255 MPH�
4-Time World Record Holder- Funnybike/Top Fuel Motorcycle
November 25, 2011

Dear Vanson Leathers,

I am writing today to send you my most sincere �thank you� and tell anyone who is thinking about purchasing leathers that you are THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!!!

On September 10, 2011, I was making a few exhibition passes at US131 (Martin, MI) during the tracks� �Nitro Funnycar Event� when I made one of the quickest and fastest drag racing passes in history. As I went through the Finishline, I was blown off of my Top Fuel Motorcycle at 246 MPH in 5.78 SECONDS.

When I exited the motorcycle, I was lifted into the air and slammed to the pavement, which knocked me unconscious. In hind site, this was the best scenario that could have happened as my body went limp and I slid on my back�for over 300 yards.

As I sit and write this letter, I am totally healed from the crash. Totally. The ONLY damage that I suffered was road rash on my lower spine, where the vented material of my suit succumbed to the intense heat and abrasion of sliding across the pavement at 245+ MPH. I had NO OTHER DAMAGE. None. I could have run a 5K marathon the next morning except I had forgotten my running shoes back in Denver. HA!

To my knowledge, this is the fastest motorcycle crash in history. What makes it even more amazing is the fact that I suffered almost NO damage. The suit is truly a work of art and I would NEVER put myself in another set of leathers as I have now proved that I can walk away from a second 200 MPH crash with NO abrasions. Back in 2008, I was electrocuted by a broken spark plug and had to let go of the motorcycle while traveling over 210 MPH and hit the ground going 200. This crash had the same exact result- NO DAMAGE to my skin whatsoever. TRULY AMAZING!!

I cannot thank you enough for the incredible leathers that you have provided me with for the past 8 years of my Professional drag racing career. I started using your leathers and gloves back in 2003 and have been a diehard VANSON FAN since.

Thank you again for all you do to keep us racers and riders safe from harm. You have proved to me that the cost of leather is much, much cheaper than time spent in the emergency room.

Thank you,

Korry Hogan
