Gloves that is!! :D

Was out at Action Motorsports this morning, stopped in to pick up a couple plastic pop rivets for my underfairing that I've been needing..and we were looking at gloves. I was going to pick up a pair of icon street gloves, but they didnt have xxl, and the larege was just alittle too snug..on sale for 25.00 ..then I saw the joe rockets for like um 39.99 I think it was. they had them in my size, but not the color I wanted. I just couldnt win today in there..

what would you choose icon or joe rocket ?..I like the icons alot, and the price is better than the rockets..will probably go back on monday and see if they have any more...

You know what ones I like. Go with the Rocket. Thoses gloves kick arse. Very comfortable. I may have to pick up a pair soon.

However, and I am sure everyone will agree with this. Get the gloves that are going to feel the best on you and the most comfortable. No need to get something that looks good but you are not comfortable wearing. :dthumb:

trying to find the right combination of fit/price/protection...

Lets put it in this order... Protection being the most inportant. Fit and comfort second. And then Price. You need your hands so best to get the best overall for them. If not, who else is going to slap me in the back of the head when I do something stupid.


Cue Carrie in 3...2...1...SLAP! :lol:

I'd stick with the rockets but only because that is what all of my stuff is... er will be. When I first decided to start riding I bought a jacket right away and it was Joe Rocket. Now that I really like riding I put in my order for pants, jacket, shoes, gloves, and a tank bag. The jacket I originally bought won't match the new bike, so I'm passing it down to my mom.

I know protection comes first, thats a given when your riding...just gotta decide now what I like.. I like the rockets alot, no doubt...but heard alot of good things about icon too....eh, maybe I'll go against the grain and get the icons, just to be different.. :rolleyes: :D

will have to go try these on again and see what I can find out...

SpeedRags look nice and all but I am going to have to stick with the jacket I am getting. Joe Rocket has some nice gear. What do you think of it??

Well. I am going to have to strongly disagree with you on this one. I would love to get to the track but before I do, I want to be sure i have the right gear. I know Twisty would agree with me on this and anyone else who rides at a track. If I fall and need to slide, I want to have something to save the skin on my arse.

And isn't it a requirement to have full gear before they will let you on the track?? I think YES.

FYI there are no stickers on my bike that weren't there when it was made.

:D
