    When is enough Gear enough?

    Just had some Heli bars installed on VFR. Great addition. While I was in the store I couldn't help but pick up a pair of summer leather riding gloves. I haven't been wearing gloves in the heat. Bad for safety so I felt buying these was a no brainer. I have a sargent seat on order. My leather jacket is pretty worn and I've been bouncing around the idea of a Foxcreek Leather jacket because of all the great reviews I have heard about them. I'd like to have a Zumo 550. I currently wear chaps, want leather pants for added safety.

    In other words...am I ever going to have enough gear? Sheesh. This is getting expensive. I've spent well over $1000 in the last month on stuff.

    Simple answer NO!

    Once you get one set then you'll want a cold weather set, then hot weather then commuting gear, etc. So don't think you can close the wallet on this subject so easily!

    2 A-stars jackets one perf one not, pair of A-Stars track pants, Joe rocket jacket, pair of tourmaster nylon pants, joe rocket jacket, Fieldsheir nylon jacket, Teknik Speed star full suit, Aerostitch suit, A-stars touring boots, Sidi race boots, 3 or 4 pairs of gloves, 2 suomi helmets, 1 agv helmet, 1 shoei helmet, heated vest. I think thats all for now. Its cheaper than the emergency room.

    Just one more thing, I don't care how much gear you wear, If you ride beyond your skills, too fast for conditions or with the wrong people No amount of gear will help you...................Period

    Ride your own ride and wear your gear

    True. And the morgue is'nt as pricy. Especialy if you have the courtesy to pre bag yourself in leather.

    I have never met a fisherman who thought he had enough rods, reels, and tackle or a hunter who thought he had enough guns.

    Why should motorcyclists be any different?
