Your Riding Gear info (hopefuly) here.

I had an idea, I'm not sure if it will work. But I'll attempt it anyway.

I thought I would make this a thread where members can post some of the riding gear that they own or use regularly. The reason is that when someone is looking to buy some new boots, jacket etc they can look at this thread and see that member#1 has the boots that they're thinking about and members #2 and #3 have the jacket they want. That someone can then ask for opinions and advice about the gear from people who've actually used/tested the gear in the real world.

So I'll start.

I currently own the following,

Dainese Nox 1pc suit.
\/


Dri-Rider Summit2 pants and jacket.
\/


Shoei TZR helmet.
Alpinestars TZ1 leather jacket.
Alpinestars GP-PRO gloves.
R-Jays H20 Gloves.
Dainese spine protector (I'm not sure exactly what model).
Sidi Strada Tepor boots.
\/


And in my GF's collection,
Joe Rocket Roxie leather jacket.
R-Jays GP1 helmet.
R-Jays leather gloves, of some sort :? .
Alpinestars Gore-tex boots. (that are really tough SOB's).
\/




I hope that this works and that we don't end up with more questions than answers. But I think something like this could be quite useful, particularly for those who haven't had the time or experience with a wider range of protective gear and are looking to buy a particular type of clothing for the first time.

Warning: Death may occur if taken seriously.

Meant to do this earlier but I'm a slack bastard.

Picked up the Axio Swift pack a few weeks ago as I wanted something functional yet stylish which complimented the bike. I believe I succeeded.

I couldn't find a site that had a photo of it near anything that gave it a good sense of scale so my biggest fear was that it was going to be a tad small for most cargo. I was kind of right and kind of wrong. As you can see it's actually pretty sizable.

Keep in mind that I'm 6'3", so I may make it look a bit smaller than it actually is.

The straps have a wide range of adjustment and each mount 2 rings and have various cloth clip points. It comes with a handy pouch seen here and the front shot above (you can see a bit of it in the side shot, too). It should fit most phones and many MP3 players made today (about 2 1/2 inches wide would be the max). It can be removed or moved to the other strap.

The top of the hardcase has a small inlet for a line to a music player or other such goodies. The downside is that it could let water in which would be a bad thing. Axio sells a water cover for the pack, though.

There is a pouch mounted on the inside by the inlet to put whatever electronic critter you are going to need a cord going to.

The downside is that this pack is mostly designed for items that are more flat than anything. Laptops seemed to get the nod for a primary use although an extra large widescreen one may be a bit much. The inside of the hump area is only accessible by a single zipper as seen on the right. This means that while the pack's volume is pretty decent you couldn't fit one item in it that would take up nearly all of it's space.

Still, it's a good pack, looks damn nice at speed, quite functional for medium size items, and wasn't hideously expensive.

Go here to see the Swift and Axio's other products. They make a bigger version named the Forza that isn't as streamlined but would certainly haul more.

Kneedraggers has a decent price on them. About $120.

Well, I finally got around to reorganizing my closet, so while I was doing that, I though I would take a few photos of the various pieces of gear I have. Funny how it all adds up after a while...

Starting with the helmets...
Arai Quantum f


Shoei RF 1000


Moving to the Jackets

First Gear Kilimanjaro Air with Removable Quilted Waterproof Liner



Hein Gericke Mesh with Removable Waterproof Liner



Triumph with Removable Quilted Liner



Moving to Pants
Hein Gericke Mesh Pants with Removable Waterproof Liner and Armoured Knees



Next up... Gloves
First Gear Gauntlet


Belstaff Kevlar Gauntlet


Held Goretex Rain Gloves


First Gear Cold Weather Gauntlet


Burton Glove Liners


Cold Weather Hoods
Under Armour Cold Gear Hood


Cold Killers Wind Stopper Hood


Riding Boots and Shoes
Oxtar Goretex Boots


Triumph Sport Riding Shoe


Now for the Track Wear or Twisty Road Wear

Teknic Lightning 2 pc Suit




Teknic Lightning Gloves


Teknic Violator 1 pc Suit


Teknic Violator Gloves


Sidi Vertigo Corsa Boots


and lastly...
Tourmaster Rain Covers for the Sidi's


All of this stuff gets used depending on the weather conditions or riding style I plan on employing on a particular ride. My next major project is to finish painting my track plastics and get a trailer puchased so I can organize all of this stuff in one nice neat package and be ready to travel on a moment's notice.

Here's hoping for an early spring in Indiana...

Took me a little bit but I got it all photo'd. It is amazing how this stuff will accumulate over time!!

Starting with jackets.

First is the latest addition I just got, Teknic Rage jacket:


First Gear jacket:


Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 Mesh jacket:


Hein Gericke Mesh jacket:


Buell Cold Weather/Touring Adventure jacket:


Now for pants.

Hein Gericke Leathers:


Road Gear Mesh (soft armoured) pants:


I just recently picked up an assortment of Nike & Reebok hot weather compression (under armour style) shirts. I also have a couple of the cold weather style but didn't get them photo'd:


Just got this Triumph deal, pretty cool, its the same compression material like the under armour stuff, but its a hollow tube that can be used in about 10 different ways (baclave, face mask, head band, skull cap etc, etc):


Gloves is where my downfall is. A new pair of gloves is next on the list. Currently looking at the Icon Pursuit gloves.

Answer Racing MX glove that work ok for quick ventilated slip ons. Wouldn't hold up for shit in a crash though:


Icon TiMax (mad-max :D) full guantlet gloves:


Teknic Violator boots:


Shark RSV helmet:


*Edit* Just added a new helmet. Shark RSR2 Foggy Legend in Black:


A nice sized midpack made by Outdoor gear:


Buell Sling bag backpack:
