Nice!

I just got my A* Spinner today, and wore it for my MSF test. It's perfect It's everything I'd hoped, and fits much better than any JR or Shift stuff. The only thing that compared is the Icon Accelerant.

If your jacket is anything like mine, You'll love it!
After a few rides, I'll post a review.

No better way to get my wax-on wax-off than the right way!

Next check. I found it at a REALLY low price, so im jumping on it. Besides the longer Blackjack01 takes in getting the tittle the more money i can spend on gear

go to your local shop for fitment.

Yeah I've had a number of people tell me that. According to their fitment chart I should get an xl lid. But I know my dome is NOT that big, every other helmet I've used has been a medium. I'm debating whether I should wake up early tomorrow and head to the closest shop which is a few miles away.

Glad to see you're getting the gear first and saving up for the bike, rather than the other way 'round.

I like the icon decay helmet. Never buy it tho because standing out is a very bad thing and im fixing all my standing out problems.


WOT is more than just a throttle position, it's a LIFESTYLE

I got my jacket in the mail today and it looks amazing! it fits good on the arms and sleves but the chest is a bit tight when i zip up and it doesnt come down below my belt. Now i've been told A* sizing and fitment is a bit strange for lack of better words but im assuming this just isnt my size? or are these jackets supposed to be this fitted?

I don't think it's supposed to come down in front. If it did, your jacket would bunch up on the bike, but the back should drop down a little more to protect your back. Anyway- Shift and JR felt strange to me, so

Congrats on the new jacket
