I just got my first bike in America recently (student from the far east).
I got a good deal on a 02 919 and got it. The bike seems to need nothing.
I am trying to decide gear to buy. I have a helmet alone for now, (which also I plan on replacing with a closer fit soon), that I got to ride it home.
These are the options for the gear. I am tight on budget(
),but want to get as much protection as possible.
1. Gloves -Fly Trekker Gloves - RevZilla
40$, textile gloves
Alpinestars SMX-3 Air Gloves - RevZilla
TEKNIC Chicane Short Gloves Black 2011 Model from SportbikeTrackGear.com
50$ Goatskin gloves. with steel and kevlar.
2. Jackets -
Alpinestars T-Omega Air Flow Jacket - RevZilla
Its available for 80$ in Amazon(without any reviews though)
AGV Sport Solare Jacket - RevZilla
109$ , but its available in the neon colors for visibilty. I use this
to commute to work and will use it to commute in the future too
apart from the weekend rides.
AGV Sport Solare Vented Pants - RevZilla
TourMaster Quest Textile Pant Video - YouTube
You have any thoughts ,opinions on this?
Mostly touring on asphalt and lot of city riding.
What else should I be looking at buying?
Should I get a CE approved back Armour too?
I am thinking of eventually adding a pair of boots too ( after a few more pay checks)
Is there any difference between the lower certified helmets and the expensive ones, apart from fit and lightness?
What should I be looking for?
Any other advice from experienced guys?
I can ride pretty well(Fingers crossed), but this is the biggest Motorcycle
Ive owned and gear back home were basically cheap/unbranded ones flooded from local asian market. They were enough for the speeds there.
I appreciate any comments and thanks in advance.
