Can anyone reccomend a good pair of riding shoes/boots for everyday commuting and around town stuff? Not looking for the calf high crazy colored boots, but I need something besides tennis shoes or my big honkin' 'harley' boots.
Also, I need to get a new jacket. My current leathers (jacket and chaps ;) ) don't have armor in them. So a brightly colored jacket with armor in the pertinent places, recommendations?
Last thing, helmet questions. Right now I have a cheap ass rz1 helmet I got for my cruiser so I could ride when it got cold (always wore a shorty before.) So now I'm looking to get a better quality helmet to protect my squishy parts. I was thinking either the Suomy Spec-1R, or the Arai RX7.... Is there a comparable Shoei?
My budget for all three pieces is around 1700 bucks (minus insurance). I expect to be paying betwen 500-650 for the helmet alone. Any left overs will be spent to get some tank grips, and possible CA taillight. So what jacket and boots can I get for a total ~500. Seen a lot of icon around lately. Is it any good? *hrm... Hope i'm not threadjacking*
Doobie doobie doo
