I found an a* leather jacket I like, not sure which one but has a ton of armor and is breathable. some suggestions on boots, brand, possibly model. When I ride generally go out to eat, Dont do a ton of walking but just in case need something comfortable.

A* SMX 's and Sidi Vertigo's are comfy n have great protection.

Both are around $250 - $300 depending on where you buy them. And they both have a perforated model.

If you live in florida, get a* smx plus perforated boots, or sidi vertigo air boots, also perforated. You'll love em.

I personally prefer sidi's.

Thanks, What about pants, I think if I tried even yesterday, (today was a bit cooler but not cold) to ride in leathers I would fry. Lots of stop and go. Same thing perforated leather. I was looking at the jeans that are kevlar reinforced. Are they a waste of money? And there are the vertigo air, and the vertigo corsa air? I could not tell a difference. Oh and thanks a bunch, you guys have been helpful
