what brand of leather do you sport?

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

I have Alpinestars Track Pants and an AGV Podium Jacket. I'm changing to a Moto GP Jacket soon.

This off season I'll be buying a good quality one piece.

I've crashed Vanson Leathers hard for a long, long time. They ain't cheap, but they will go down more often than other brands. I have a serious lack of injuries compared to others that I know too. I've been knocked down, ran over, hit walls, etc. Yeah, I don't break easy, but my luck ran out a long time ago.

Whatever Newenough is blowing out. I have had Teknic, Firstgear, Honda Racing , Joe Rocket and MotoGP. FirstGear and Honda Racing Leather both made by Intersport Fashion West....both crashed extremely well considering FirstGear I picked up for 149 and the Honda stuff for $85. The Joe Rocket stuff also crashed very well it was $149. I just picked up the MotoGP for 139...haven't even wore the stuff. The Teknic I wore a couple of times...then off to Ebay...wasn't comfortable at all.

My Syed's have been crashed tested more times than I care to admit. For the price, the really thick leather my suit has goes a LONG WAY toward keeping me safe. Some people say the SYED has older style armour, but mine works great.
