One step closer...

Last night I picked up my first piece of gear! On the local craigslist website I found a woman selling the exact jacket I wanted in my size! I would have got red if it was my choice but I like the blue too. The best part is that I paid $80!!! It is a few years old and a little dirty but for $300 less than retail I could care less.

This is the jacket...

I had to share...I am very excited!

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

NICE!! That's an excellent jacket....

Not to scare you, but I've seen it crash-tested, and it held up great! A GF of mine who went down last fall was wearing that jacket and a Shoei lid.... broke her arm quite badly, and a couple other injuries (that's what happens when your arm is squashed between your body and the curb) but NO road rash and no head injury.

CONGRADS on the gear may it never touch the ground .

It's not who you are it's what you ride. I mean, "Who really cares who you are anyway"!!!!

Not to hijack or anything, but what happened with your friend that got in that REAL bad accident last year? Is she back on two wheels?

send me the measurments of your hand (around the knuckles and length from wrist to longest fingertip) I might have an extra pair of gloves you can have for shipping costs. (I've been searching for the perfect fit and have accumulated about 4-5 pairs so far... I only wear two pair regularly.)
