    My teenage sons just got their MC Lic's and we have set dates for a few weeks of BDR riding and camping throughout the summer.

    Let me know if you have old gear you would like to sell.

    They have been working and saving for the last year and bought bikes this past fall. We spent the winter going through the bikes; tires, oil, filters, valve adjustments and one top end rebuild.

    Time for them to buy some gear.

    Looking for:
    Riding jackets to wear over their pads (GoreTex/ waterproof)
    Size LG. Son #1 wears size 42L suit coat and is 6ft, 155-160lbs.
    Size MED. Son #2 wears size 40R suit and is 5'8", 140lbs.

    Riding pants. GoreTex/ waterproof
    Size 32-34 waist.

    Gear and luggage; Soft bags/ rackless bags (Mosko, Wolfman, Giant Loop)

    Sleeping bags that pack down.

    Adventure/ Dual Sport style helmets. Size LG for both.

    They are riding single cylinder medium displacement bikes so packing space is minimal.

    Let me know if you have some gear you would like to move.

    Thanks,
    R.

    I make ultralight sleeping bags. I have a few prototypes I’d be willing to sell. Pack very small, 900fp down, rated at 27 degrees.

    I’ve got an LS2 MX 453 hardly worn that I was about to put in the flea stalls. Let me double check size, but it’s the fluorocarbon yellow color. Actually loved the vents and the shield hinge that locks wherever you want it but my head shape is very weird and it’s been in the closet.

    I have a NWOT Triumph Endeavour ADV jacket in the flea market. It's a "small" but is just a little tight on me at 5'9" and 185 pounds. I liked it so much, I bought a brand new one just like it a size up.

    Thank you for all of your responses and PMs. This has been great.

    The boys found helmets last night and since it’s their money final purchase is up to them; one went with the KLIM KIROS, other bought the Bell MX9.

    We are humbled and appreciative to everyone who responded and offered gear. Thank you
    This is going to be a fun summer.

    Nice. I’ve got 25k miles on my MX-9 and it’s still good enough. I do wish the first detente position was lower though for keeping out the fog in humid/wet weather. Safe travels to you gents. Hope I’m still kicking it in as many years when my 1 and 3 yr old sons are good to hit the trails.
