Im wondering what type of Gear you guys wear while riding. It seems that Dainese and Vanson are the most popular choice for riders in my area, unfortunatly they are expensive.

I wear

Joe rocket sonic jacket.. All black
Hjc Leather pants. Black
Sidi Sympatex.. Black
most confortable boots in the world. They are some of the best i have ever worn.

Shoei rf800.. Black

My other setup.. Which is more confortable is

Joe rocket Tahoe jacket
Alpinestars pants

My pants dont have knee slider velcro attachments. Does anyone know if its possible to get knee sliders that dont require the velcro, maybe some that strap onto the pants with elastic???!

If anyone could, post pics of your gear! Mine is full of smoched bugs right now.. Im waiting for a good thunderstorm to wash them away.

If im going by a friends house or a quick stop not too far away i wear a string vest, pair of shorts and sneakers - no socks hehehe..... but then again i live in the tropics and its hot as hell here and im not wearing full gear during the day. That would be more dangerous, because I would probably pass out.

At night, I wear my blue and white Yamaha racing leathers, shoei RF900 TC-2 Blade.

BTW I wear a helmet at all times.
