Perforated leathers with CE armor.

Sidi boots - both pairs

Joe Rocket Gloves - Both Pairs

Helmets - both

Aerostich 1 piece - Can you believe I already tested it? ... It works rather well

Widder Electric Gear - All of it , but gloves need to be armored and more crash worthy.

MX hardshell lower leg and knee pads - for the times that you cannot get away with riding with the stich.

Rapid Transit Softbag combo = 200 dollars of luxurious luggage space.

GPS - Garmin 60c does everything that is suppossed to do ... rather well.

Heated grips - cold paws are dangerous.

You know, I've been following this great thread for a while now, when the thought suddenly occurred to me: "why not stick it to the top of the forum?"



It is exactly what the Equipment Forums is all about. It's got lots of good information. I've learned some good stuff.

It's stuck to the top.

Now, back on topic. My top ten best equipment list would include (in no particular order):
  • iPod
  • Garmin GPS276c
  • SureFire 6P Flashlight
  • Sig P229
  • Sidi On-Road Sympatec Boots
  • Benchmade knife
  • Blackberry
  • Kermit Chair
  • My GS

Yeah, that's only nine - but it's dinner time.

Glock rocks! Sig's are Ok, not as reliable. Glocks eat any kind of ammo, rain or shine, all day long. Sigs are good, but no match for Combat Tupperware.

Glocks are JUST like KLR's or DR's

Cheap
Ugly
Reliable as a rock
and you can spend more money on Farkles than you did on it in the first place.

Smartwool = great stuff.


Maybe a bit expensive, but way worth it.

My Glock is not ugly. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
My Glock is not "farkled". It's a tool.
The comparison with KLR is odious.

Laugh Sig

Sig is the only choice.
Get it wet, smash it, drive a tank over it, pick it up and deliver accurate stopping power every time. Sweet feel, smooth slide...I love it!

p226 (9mm), p229 (.40)

Oh yeah...the thread...

A wife who swooned watching Ewan drive his GS through the sludge and said, "Damn you, I want to do that!"
