« on: June 25, 2008, 06:24:42 PM »
I just thought this would be a good topic.As for my gear,Icon leather racing gautlet gloves,Vanson leather jacket & 18yr old chaps,Full face scorpion helmet.I'm in the process of buying kevlar street pants.Boots are just genaric slip on 9" high.When you have a 15 triple E foot :o, boots can be hard to find.It may sound like a lot but I don't want to vist my friends "FUNERAL HOME!"

Well I don't have a bike yet nor full riding attire.  Just got an HJC AC-12 helmet though and some PowerTrip gloves with carbon fiber knuckle guard.  Still trying to find a good jacket for a decent price, then maybe pants and boots.  Can never be too protected...

I have A teknik jacket, Shoei RF-1000 helmet, and teknik gloves. I also have a shift mesh jacket for blistering hot days. I'll probably be getting some boots in the near future as well.

Welcome to the forum! You should make your way over to the introductions section :)

On topic: I am in need of boots, and really should get some soon.

I just ordered a Teknic Chicane leather jacket.  I'm gonna look like a MotoGP racer before I even have a bike!

Nice! I kinda wish I bought a leather jacket instead of my textile.

Yea, I was kinda on the fence because of the heat here, but it's perforated and is said to vent very well so for $194 I thought the few extra bucks are worth it.
