Helmet: Arai Quantum
Jacket: Vanson Ventilator
Gloves: Alpinestars SP-S
Pants: Jeans
Boots: High Tech (law enforcement style)

I would like some riding pants, but I have large thighs, nothing fits right. I would like boots too, but I wear a US 15. Ah, maybe one day I can afford custom gear!

Life is all about ass; you're either covering it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.

Once you have flown, you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return.

Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul.

At minimum, I always wear my helmet, jacket, gloves, boots, and jeans. I really need to start wearing my one-piece more though.
