Ok so here goes. Always been a daring kid, and thats no exception while riding my 250. So more then likely theres gonna come a time when I go down. However going down does not scare now worry me however if/when I do I would like to get up and walk away with all my blood still in my body. So I currently have an HJC cl-15 helmet and a Icon TiMax 2 Mesh Jacket. link : http://newenough.com/protective_appa...le_jacket.html
However, I've been riding in jeans and tennis shoes for the past 3 weeks. I was wondering if you guys can inform me on sum good leather pants, glvoes, and boots to buy. Not the best or most expensive but something nice with good protection that I can get without breaking my wallet. Also maybe a nice leather jacket to go along with my current mech one thats on its way ( just ordered it yesterday)
the JR GPX boots r good for what cost less than a $100, The Sidi's I want are $275 tho lol.
Pants its hard to beat the Teknic chicane leather pants, a few of us have them n love em. Sine your thinking about a leather jackets too look at the 2pc suits, ones like Teknic's n a few others you can find for around $300, seen a JR set for around $500
Gloves I got the Teknic lighting gloves full gauntlet gloves w/ kevlar knuckle guards $50-$60 for the 05's the 07 are $65-$75
If you're going to ride that enthusiastically (dragging pegs and all that jazz) then get yourself at least a decent textile riding pants. Jeans, even reinforced jeans, won't cut it. Cortech/Tourmaster makes some good textile riding pants.
