Helmet: Qwest for the winter, Multitec/Roof Boxer V8 for the summer and I've just ordered an Oneal Sierra (re-branded AFX FX41) for the extreme heat. I always use a helmet liner (doorag/buff) - helps keep the helmet clean and makes keeping the earbuds in place a breeze. Jacket: BMW RP2 sans liner spring, summer and autumn. Sans armour (just didn't fit me). Amour: Pressure suit - vast improvement on the BMW armour and it has a back protector. Forcefield knee tubes. Pants: Rukka Goretex something or other and BMW city pants - kept the hip armour but the knee armour was, as with the jacket, too loose. Boots: 365- Sidi Adventures in Goretex - and yep, they have the classic Sidi squeak :) Baselayer: UA (or similar quality) compression shirt - makes a huge difference for all four seasons. Compliment with other layers accordingly. Gloves: Hein Gericke Goretex winter gloves, Alpinestar short-cuff vented for summer. Silk liners. Africa Twin Handguards (ie minimal rain/cold protection but better than nothing). Rainsuit: 20 year old Frank Thomas Aquapac - keeps me 100% dry provided I shake the wrinkles out (especially in the seat area) and also adds a very welcome layer of insulation. Bikes: Africa Twin RD04 - that's a 25 year old DS bike - sit up and beg, windscreen. Commute: varies from 110km each way to 15km - client dependant. Location: Vienna - the Austrians really know how to treat their major (and most of the minor ones) roads and down here, at sea-level, you can pretty much ride 365. Air temperature ranges from, on average, -5c ish to 35c ish. This only works for my more informal clients where I can get away with wearing my boots, bike trousers and throwing on a polo shirt over the compression gear. If I need to suit and boot it then I either grab the company car or let the train take the strain.
