Ear Plugs

Ear Plugs - the local welding supply house sells a big box of 250 pairs for about $20.00 usd. A fresh pair of ear plugs does a great job of protecting your hearing. Unless you ride a "car without doors" you may want to consider ear plugs.

Best gear ever!

I bought the Arai XD, ya know the cool one with the visor & face shield. (killer discount from a dealer friend!) Also the Vendramini Marathon boots & last but NOT least. The worlds greatest pants... Yes, Motorport Ultra Kevlar II. The Tourmaster jackets are the best deal for the money too. All the other gear over the years were kind a waste of money. "A poor man can not afford cheap things" This stuff is worth waiting & saving for! The boots & pants are the most amazing ever! & yes, it's hard to buy from motoport, having to wait.

Ultra Kevlar II pants

The reason the Motoport Ultra Kevlar II pants are so good is, the stretch material. The comfort leval is unreal. Im is so Ca & it's warm most of the time. These pants are cool enough to wear all summer. Combined with the stretchy material, they are hands down the most comfortable "SAFE" pants made! @ least in my opinion. One thing Wayne doesn't tell you is, you can put on a load of waight, & still fit into these pants. The waist stretches atleast 6", the built in fastex-belt holds them on super secure.
Possibly a GSA someday.

I would have said the Alpinestars touring boots I've been wearing for 8-9 years, but I got a Rallye 2 Pro suit the other day and it is the cat's pajamas. Even in the rain, so far.

After my recent trip to the BRP (where it was COLD) I would have to say I simply could not live without my Gerbings when the weather gets a tad cold. Aside from that my Valentine V1 saved me a couple times (yet again ) and my Autocom was invaluable to allow me to hear the V1 and to listen to tunes.

1 piece Roadcrafter tops the list. On my second one, if I am not wearing it I feel like I left something home. Heated clothing also. BMW Savanna boots are great, my feet never get wet.
