My new Gear w/ Review

so i received my new gear the other day and nothing was better finally got to ride the last two day and this weekend gonna be riding all day.. with my friends who just bought an 08cbr600 and the other bought an 07cbr 600. so ill get sum pics of this weekend and post.. as for the gear everything fits so nice and comfortable.. even with the cold the jacket is great keeps me warm. Gloves still need to be worn alittle more to break them in but still fit nicely. helmet is very snug keeps me warm and as for sound just a little loud from the inside when i tuck behind my windscreen

not as long as the vents are open. the anti fog coating is pretty good

+1

Motorcycle gear is supposed to be somewhat snug... otherwise it essentially gives you 'gear rash'. The shoulder seams are below your shoulders, so it looks like the chest is at least one US suit size off... not to mention it looks baggy throughout the body. I would grab a smaller size if I were you.
