Yay! My new gear arrived.

Does anyone love that new gear smell too?

My beautiful new helmet. I heart Arai.


And my smoking hot boots.

Arai's are great helmets.

I've bounced mine off the asphalt a couple of times and didn't even feel it...

Haha yeah... the squeak. I rubbed a little grease between the leather and plastic at the bottom of the guards, and it went away! I think mine are 3+ years old now and still holding up quite well. I don't have the perforation on mine though, usually too cold for that!

Thanks for the tip. I'll try them on when I get home and see how loud they are.

sure good ahead and book if you find something good, you won't have to pay right then, you don't pay until you stay there just reserve on a credit card. We can all chip in before the check. Make sure to consult a map to find out where the track is in relation to the hotel. 9/12 - 9/15
