Maine specific clothing. I come from a street and cruiser background, and none of that clothing really works with the DR. Not the boots nor chaps. The leather jackets are ok, just not as waterproof as I'm imagining I'll be needing. The DR is desiring to become my go-to ride of choice for as many months as possible.

Looking for recommendations for decent jackets and pants that stand up to what Maine has to offer, and that will not break the bank. Not really looking at 400 dollar jackets, but I suppose there's no harm looking. I did pick up a nice Triumph mesh jacket that I expect will service me well when the weather warms some more.

Also, I'm not sure how much off road riding I'll be doing. I do hope to do some exploring.

Can I get some comments on the following gear?

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ol-Jacket.aspx

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ro-Jacket.aspx
I think this looks good for layering underneath, but no armor :(

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...of-Jacket.aspx
Kinda like this the best.

Of course any comments and suggestions are welcome for pant and boot gear as well. Or anything else for that matter.
Thank you!

All a very personal choice, I really like Firstgear but I have different priorities than the next guy. I will say this, I think you get what you pay for.

Internalcombust and I trailered our little bikes up to Appleton to do a little trail riding with MWS..nice day of riding.

I had a chance to really get to know my new to me DR350 today...the little biatch likes to play rough. About 15 minutes into the ride she threw me down and pinned me there..

after that things got a little better and I pretty much stayed up right...except for when I tried to pass IC in a deep hole and the little biatch threw me off...waters still cold incase anyone is wondering...

MWS did an excellent job today leading us around and not giving me much to take pics of..

IC on the other hand...lets just say he was in front of me so I took pics of him today



Kinda have to wonder looking at that pic if we shouldn't have gone right up the middle of the hole...





all in all we had a good morning of riding...

I just got jacket, pants and boots form Leatherup.com, they were very cheap, don't no how they will hold up but I like the armor and it didn't brake the bank. Worn them several times now.

I agree with Kaw First gear has some great stuff. Tourmaster is a little more budget friendly and decent gear as well.

If you are looking to wear armour with a jacket over it that can be a good way to go as well. On the little bikes and for mostly trail rides I wear this

Then you can where most anything over top of it.

Again like Kaw said it is very personal. I think there is gear that works well for Adventure type riding and traveling, then there is gear for little bike riding and off road riding...and then there is summer gear..yea I am a gear whore of sorts...
