Brand preference?

I like Dainese for leathers, they seem exotic to me. You don't see nearly as much Dainese as you do Joe Rocket or Alpinestar. I also like it for that reason.

Helmets... I'm partial to Shoei.

I like the Joe Rocket stuff. Motophoria makes good stuff too - but they are limited on selection because they are new.

For MX I' have been partial to Fox for jerseys and pants, for protective stuff I usually try to find stuff that is comfortable. Arai helmut.

For street I have a teknic full leather, joe rocket gloves, Alpinestar boots(both MX and street) and had an Arai helmut that sacrificed admirably at the track, best $500 I've ever spent.

I've got Fieldsheer summer gear (pants and jacket) and a Shoei RF1K. My SO wears an Arai.

For leathers, I like Vanson or Dianese.

Areostich are, supposedly, excellent gear. They're custom made for you instead of off the rack. I get their catalogs from time to time, but I've never bought anything from them. The sport-touring crowd swears by Aerostich.

For me it's Shoei for helmets and First Gear for leathers.

My regular jacket is Joe Rocket, my leathers are Alpinestars, and my boots are Sidi. Helmet is an Arai Signet b/c that's the only one that fits basically, but I like it.

Vanson gear is by far best made product, everything is made for the biker.
Joe Rocket does offer some cheap well made products.
I ride with full Vanson leathers, including gloves with Sidi boots

02 BMW K1200RS Staintune many mods. Totaled by 16 year old girl
02 BMW F650GS Staintune many mods.

Joe Rocket is all good with me too...My other half picked me up a vega helmet for christmas last year...all in all, a very sweet lid, for a fraction of the cost of a shoei..lightweight, comfortable, and my head stays pretty cool with all the vents.

I am probably going to part ways with my Intersport/Honda leathers. I just don't see myself wearing them on my CL350's.... They're the only Honda's I have left! It's an extremely nice set of leathers. Problem is that none of my Honda riding friends can fit them!

I mainly have Joe Rocket because of price, but I'm also new to the sport. If I begin to ride more, I will buy better gear. I don't have any leathers, just textile/mesh.

It's just because you're as skinny as a tooth pick!

That would be one of the aforementioned Honda riding friends.
At 6'0, I'm the shortl guy in our group.

To answer your question, the jacket is a 44, and the pants are a 32 waist.
