It's possible, yes. I'm sure can afford the stuff - I just don't want to. I'm used to the high quality gear I was able to buy in Germany for fairly affordable prices and what I find in the US is just outrageously priced. Being that Motoport, Klim, or whatnot. I'm willing to pay for quality, but I'm not willing to bend over for it ...

For me at least it's easy, I'll buy more gear next time I'm in Germany visiting parents ...

For the Triumph stuff: it plain doesn't fit me so far. The Adventure gear seems to be tailored for short and wide people. I could use it as a tent, but not as a jacket ...
