Time to get some gear finally! I know I know. I should have posted this in the Riders Gear forum. But seriously, I know alot of you and respect your opions alot more than people posting from around the U.S. You know the climate, riding conditons here. Some of you even know my build. Alot of you have already experienced going down. I am sick of not riding with gear. I have a :gay helmet for now. But at least it is a helmet. I would prefer to get a jacket, gloves, pants, and boots now. I think I will work my way down the list. I have been doing alot of reading so dont think I just came here to avoid doing research. I just really want to make sure that I make a decent choice the first time. I thought about getting the Ikon Timax Mesh stuff, along with the Timax gloves. But I have heard alot of really negative things about them except for the fact that they look good. I obviously want to be able to stay somewhat cool in the summer but I do want the good protection. What kind of gear do you reccomend? Perfed leather? Mesh? Textile? What about gloves? (thinking of the A*'s GP tech's) I really do need :feedback . Thanks In advance. Sorry about the long post!
