I am going to take a motorcycle biggener class in few weeks. I am looking to buy a used sportsbike and brand new gears.
Is a used Katana 600 a good beginner bike? or is it too powerfull for a beginner?
What do you think of Moto GP motorcycke gears brand? They are a little pricy, but I don't mind to pay more for more protection and quality.

How much in general I should spend on gears (helmt, gloves, jacket, pants, boots)? is $1000 too much?

I don't want to go crazy and buy too expensive gears that ment to be for racers, however I want to protect my body as much as possible.

All your comment are appreciated.

Pants - Icon Recon, Draggin Jeans = $100 - good mix of safety and comfort plus you can wear them to the local diner and not look like a jackass or YMCA freak[/B] [/B] wearing chaps or some shiiit
:lol: I have actually seen such jackassess at a few restuaruants... :lol:

But as for the Ic on recon pants, I have a couple of them and the Icon superduty as well...the recon's make very nice riding pants...they're vented which will be big plus if you live in hot climate..
