    How much? I'm just trying to get a feel on how much I am going to need to spend.

    My MX gear cost me about $300-400 for everything.

    I haven't bought the leathers for my street bike but so far it's been $800-900 for gloves/jacket/helmet. I'm expecting to buy another grand in gear for a leather suit and boots.
