    Re: What's in your gear closet?

    Let's see....

    I got 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear, 4th gear and 5th gear. Haven't gotten around to adding a 6th yet, but keep grabbing for it.

    I'm a fashion emergency, but have some gear(s).

    I got a bunch of riding jackets from mesh to leather, some riding pants from mesh to leather, more t-shirts with riding logos than you can shake a stick at, summer riding boots, winter riding boots, goggles, night glasses, day glasses, walking around glasses, reading glasses, extra glasses, summer gloves, winter gloves, in between gloves, rubber gloves for oil changes and shaping hamburgers, not neccesarily in that order, and of course my nails match my bike. Don't yours?

    Oh yeah, I have a set of allen wrenches, first aid kit, keys, extra keys, lock and key, batteries, flashlights, leatherman, map bag, maps, GPS and and and and....

    Did I miss anything?

    Oh yeah. Helmets... 3/4, full face, and a Schuberth that I wear all the time. Beanie doorag, babushka doo rag, and an extra ball cap or two.

    (BTW~most everything is CE armored and suitable riding gear.)

    Re: What's in your gear closet?

    Too much...or at least that is what my wife would say.

    Helmet: Shoei RF1000
    Helmet: Shoei RF800
    Jacket: Tiger Angel 3/4 length gore/textile sandwich. Incredible waterproof jacket from Australia
    Jacket: Tourmaster textile w/ liner
    Jacket: Joe Rocket mesh
    Pants: Tiger Angel gore/textile. Go with jacket. Awesome in bad weather.
    Pants: Fieldsheer mesh (with good armor/padding)
    Pants: First Gear leather overpants
    Boots: Sidi Sympatek. touring boot
    Liners: Gerbing Jacket and pants liners
    Gloves: Too many to list. Everything from Gerbing G3's to cheap mesh. You can never have too many gloves.

    It's rather frightening when you list it all out.
    Get Lost!.... its good for you.

    Jacket - Textile: BF Dakar
    Jacket lines: Gerbing
    Pants - Textile: can't remember name. Daily use, getting worn
    Pants - Textile: BF Dakar
    Helmet: Schuberth C1 (daily)
    Helmet: Airoh (spare)
    Gloves - Leather: yes
    Gloves - Weather/Winter: yes
    Gloves - Weather/Winter: Gerbing
    Boots: Daytona (daily)
    Boots: can't remember (spare)
    hearing protection: alpine

    The dakar jacket/pants have detachable water and insulation layers, so are basically all-year. The can't remember pants have a thinner insulation layer, but with the very mild winter we had and the excellent wind/water protection of the ST1100 / ST1300 I ride I've basically used those all year too. And need to buy a thinner spare / summer jacket as well at some point.

    Re: What's in your gear closet?

    Gear closet? I have a closet? You just said that to make me go look didn't you? If I found a closet here I'd be in the wrong house!

    I have one jacket, count'm, 0ne!

    1 Fieldsheer Aqua Tour jacket w/liner
    2 Tourmaster "Jean" trousers
    1 pair 1st gear trousers that I got real cheap because of a broken zipper which I got a friend to fix for me.
    1 pair Xelement engineer style boots
    1 pair of riding gloves with carbon fiber knuckle inserts
    1 Icon Alliance type 1 ff helmet
    1 AGV Dragon 3/4 helmet

    Everything I have was either on sale, discontinued or used and I was glad to get it. This fixed income business sucks.

    Since this was first posted I've added:
    Tourmaster Draft Air mesh jacket w/ liner
    Fieldsheer Mercury over pants
    Fieldsheer mesh trousers
    short boots
    Fieldsheer Sugo one piece rainsuit
    HJC CL-Max modular helmet

    Re: What's in your gear closet?

    Leather:
    tie-sided thick leather jeans
    thick leather fringed jacket
    waistcoat with patches
    Winter (ok for a mild winter...) ixon gloves
    mid season (supposed to be winter - hah!) furygan gloves
    summer military issue goretex lined gloves
    high firefighters goretex lined boots (fantastic kit but not much feel)

    'oh dear' bad weather clothing
    Cold weather NATO issue M65 coat
    Russian military winter overtrousers and jacket (stupidly warm)
    Mullion 'offshore hostile waters' very warm floatation jacket and salopettes. (You simply cannot get wet in these, combined with the Russian gear you literally warm up on a ride in anything down to -5. Tested on a longish run at -17 and warm as toast).
    British army gotetex jacket, sallopettes, over-gloves (very waterproof, for use over leathers)
    British army arctic warfare gloves & goretex outer gloves. (totally warm in any weather but lack feel)
    Flexothane commercial overtrousers (cheap and completely waterproof).

    Sorry folks, no armour, but I've worn this for years.... blah blah...

    Floatation jacket on a motorcycle? Maybe time to take a handling course if that's a necessity?
