    I have an Arai Signet helmet...
    an HJC sport 2 jacket....
    Sidi Vertebrea 2 boots...
    and some lightweight leather TourMaster gloves

    hopefully this spring i will get the leather pants that zip together with my jacket. and a tinted visor for my helmet. I also may buy a beefier pair of gloves becasue mine aren't as good for highway rides or long days in the weather.

    here is a pic of my stuff.

    I have alot more gear to pick up.

    Right now I have a joe rocket textile
    HJC helmet yellow and white (forgot the model)
    Basic pair of leather gloves

    This summer i'm hoping to pick up a new HJC helmet that fits better, Icon Titanium gloves, and some proper boots. IF I can I will also look at a new leather jacket. I've got a lot of shopping to do!!

    I had a fieldsheer summer jacket, one wreck at 120 and it completely disentegrated the left arm and most of the back. Couple other friends with similar results in crashes on summer jackets. I know they are a lot cooler, but it's not worth it. I didn't expect it to be undamaged, but I did think it would hold up better than that...

    Helmet - HJC CL-14 (or 12, I can't remember)
    Suit - 2-piece Spidi GTS
    Gloves - Alpinestar MX Carbon Fiber (or something like that)

    I don't wear the gear yet, but I don't have a bike yet so what's the point. All this stuff is just laying around, so I forgot the exact model numbers

    i wear a thin novelty helmet i bought at a MC party. 15 bux and it came with a dot sticker. i know it will not save me and this will sound dumb to ALL of you, but i would rather die than have someone feed me, bathe me, and wipe my ass for the rest of my life. thats now, maybe that will change in the future. and yes i am one of those idiot harley guys :)

    Helmets save lives, you will be a tard with a cheap helmet, with a nice helmet you will have a story to laugh about later - it's your choice....of course it's not always like that, but you get the point...
