Sorry. Every newbie needs thier own gear thread, and i apologize if this stuff is repeated, but i would like to get opinions on the gear i have chosen from the experienced guys. I did look through quite a few search pages of old threads, but couldn't find much info on the gear im thinking of.

Im trying to combine saftey and comfort at a not TOTALLY wallet breaking price.

Teknic Chicane Leather Pants - $230
Teknic Chicane Leather Jacket - $175
Sidi On Road Sympatex Boots - $260
Suomy Spec-1 R Black - $385
Icon Hooligan Gloves - $55

Also considering alternatives. Im thinking about the Icon Motorhead jacket which i found for $289. Please make all suggestions. Different gear, and other places to look. I found the best prices on but had a few good deals as well.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Mike go check out some shops and find your real size. Moto gear sizes vary a lot by manufacturer. If you have a wide foot you might fit Alpinestar SMX boots better than Sidi. At least that was how it was for me. Sidi's just felt to narrow.

Cycle Gear will order anything you want. No deposit and if you don't like it you are not committed to buying it. Great store to get about anything.

If you ever get up this way go to Chaparral Motorsports in San Berna dino. Huge store, good website too.

Once you know your size, check Ebay for leathers. Lockhart Phillips is always clearancing last seasons gear there for some great prices. I forget the name they do it under?
To funny meat! Did you use to announce at Miss USA? :mrgreen:
