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.

:shutme

Joe Rocket, but I've been thinking about picking up a Aerostitch Roadcrafter.


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 ;)

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.
