Thumb Great Thread!

1) Tourmaster Flex jacket...does it all...Ce approved amor, mesh for the summer, zip in solid panel and it's a full textile, then you still have a waterproof liner and a thermal liner

2) First Gear HT Air 2.0 Overpants...the shiznit

3) Mefo Explorer tires...me like! Alot! Especially with # 4 and #5 below

4) 12V accessory outlet and el cheapo 12V airpump

5) Rimlocks...air down and get a grip!

They've all been good and it's impossible to rate the best. Remus headers and exhaust make the bike smoother with a broader powerband; Wilbers shocks make the ride handle road, wind and dirt better; Kaoko throttle lock is a great comfort on a long road trip; Fastway pegs and bar back/risers allow me a more comfortable riding position, whether seated or on the pegs; Sargent seat is a dog send over the stock and allows for painless rides; LED brake lights make me more conspicuous and safer; and my new Zumo provides both entertainment (XM) and guidance on the road. How's one to pick one over another?

I never leave home without the baby wipes the best thing I've found for cleaning off the bugs from my visor. Oh so gentle. Matter of fact I use them for cleaning my bike off too... well we have water usage restrictions here, no hosing allowed

Daniese dirt bike pants 1994

Bought a pair of Dainese dirt bike pants with in built knee shin guards for my first desert blast in 1994. They are still as good as new after years of riding.

I got the roadgear pos Hi-Tec Digital Tire GaugeTG100 and the battery was dead. Drained a bunch of psi before I figured that out. The lady on the phone said to send it back and they'll check it out. I said (among other things) why don't you just send me a replacement now and I'll return this at the same time. She agreed. When I got it I returned it for a refund and got a analog dial gauge.

Best Equipment

Hi!

1) A wife that likes to take motorcycle trips and just as important, don't mind me going solo if she don't want to go.

2) A GPS! I toured over 500,000 miles before I got one and now I can't go across town without it!

3) Gerbing heated jacket liner with varible temp controller.

4) Heated grips on the Goldwing, have not put them on the KLR yet.

Cool2 best and cheapest

rode Nebraska-to-Alaska last summer. Threw in a set of ear plugs (that right less than $1 cheapies) as an afterthought. In Alaska some places the bugs were so thick they rode the air stream up the inside of my helmet and straight to my ears. Stop FAST!! take off helmet and remove bugs. Did that twice then never went anywhere without the ear plugs in. Best pieces of equipment I took with me on the trip and cheapest.
