Shoei TZ1 helmet
Held 'Steve' gloves
Joe Rocket Sonic boots
Fieldsheer Titanium Air jacket
Fieldsheer Titanium Air pants
Spidi Parsek jacket

I purchased a 1pc Aerostich Roadcrafter last week, should be here sometime in the next three weeks...



I can't wait until it arrives... from what I've heard it's the ultimate suit for street riders. Oh, and it does come in different colors. I chose the bright-ass yellow for the ballistics for visibility reasons.

Riding isn't only about the scratching on a Sunday morning. Sometimes it's about the 400 mile ride on Saturday to get to where you'll be scratching on Sunday morning with a 400 mile ride home that evening.

My best fitting gear? MY GIRL!!!

Lotsa gear, my favorites

Peanut shell: HJC CL-14 XXL with L cheek pads (me gots the odd shaped melon?)

Gloves: Like a woman has shoes, my fav' are my AGV rush, some baby ass soft leather.

Boots: I've spent too much and gotten disappointed with all but the AGV Imola's, some great feed back, not too hot, easy in and out. Plus you can actually walk in them and not look like cromagna man. Even got stuck and had to dance with the date in them.

Jacket: Tourmaster Cortech GX air, great weight, weave, just right in the heat and got the 3M gortex liner. Sweet jacket, not the usual.

Any recommends for good hot weather pants? Sun's hot here, I stay away from black or mostly black and this has majorly kept me from getting riding pants.

Gotta send it back for alterations.

This thing kicks so much ass. I highly recommend it to anybody who wants maximum protection with maximum convenience.
