Speedtrip, Have you looked into the Bohn Adventure Armor for your jeans? I am think that might be the key. I usally wear my helment (of course), Aerostich or Triumph leather jacket, gloves and draggin jeans for day rides. i dont think the draggin jeans offer much protection.

Depends on the weather and temp, but my standard is full face Arai, Triumph Stealth leather jacket (received free from Triumph USA after mucho warranty problems), leather pants and cowboy boots. I know I should get "real" M/C boots. Any suggestions for comfortable boots that you can ride in AND walk in?

I always wear everything I have even if I'm going to the store 1/2 mile away. Arai, Triumph retro armored jacket, gloves, HJC leather pants and Alpinestars. Just feel safer that way.

Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not watching me!

I bought a two piece Joe Rocket leather suit this past winter that I've been wearing a lot this spring. I also have a two piece Tour Master cordura nylon suit that I've had for the past several years. I feel more protected in the leather suit but I don't know yet if it will be bearable in mid summer heat. Besides either of the suits, I wear full face helmet, gloves and motorcycle boots. I have to absorb some "Power Ranger" jokes from coworkers but I can deal with that easier than I can with skin grafts.

RS Guy,

take a look at www.aerostich.com, They have a nice pair of all weather leather Alpine Star, very clean, just look like black boots. The are much more tasteful than my Sidi Strada's. When my pair wears out that is what I would get.

I have always been big on wearing Triumph leather ( I got the Stealth jacket and RS hard carbon gloves when I bought the daytona ) If I am doing hard riding I wear the perforated Joe Rocket leather jacket, triumph sport perforated leathers, triumph race boots and hard carbon gloves, if I am just on a normal, long day riding with some curves, I have gotten addicted to the simple Joe Rocket ballistic jacket, you hardly know you are wearing anything and it is cool without the liner, I wear draggins jeans, not much padding but would save your skin from looking like hamburger, and for boots I just wear the simple black Triumph boots which I havent seen in the new catalog, also, I wear the HJC black symax split helmet, the thing is great to open up when you are putting through the little towns at 45 mph to get some relief from the "Helmet cloustrophobia"

Most rides find me wearing my Aerostitch, one of four helmets (women have shoes, I have helmets), Kushitani gloves, Sidi Boots, back protector.
In hot weather I hang up the Aerostitch in favor of a Vanson Night Avenger jacket and Wintex pants. I also use a Marsee cooling vest in the heat.

Arai full face helmet, Joe Dropit Meteor jacket, cycloak bib textile pants, gloves, ear plugs, and some big old steel toed dock martins. I'd like to get some better riding boots at some point in the not too distant future. I don't feel right not riding around without full gear. I don't know how people can ride in t-shirts and shorts, gives me the willies seeing people doing it.

My roomate still rides around town, T-shirt, jeans, sunglass.

He knows I think he is an idiot, but it is his decision.

He is my best friend and I would hate to see him get seriously hurt riding with out a helmet.

Arai Quantum/f always. JR Ballistic Pants 3.0, almost always, I can remember going out in just jeans about 5 times in the past year and 1/2. Depending on weather I'll either wear my JR Rihno jacket and Teknic Enforcer gloves(both wapterproof) or Triumph TT600 jacket and Teknic Violator II. Also depending on the mission I'll wear either Sidi Stradas or Alpinestars S-MX Gore-Tex boots.
I am soon to be in posession of a Triumph Race jacket(silver), sport perf pants, and a backpad for more serious speed riding and track days I hope to be attending this year.
