I posted a discussion down in the ZX-14 board, but it probably makes more sense to bring it to the general board (sorry, new to the forum). Anyway, I am trying to find out about gear. As I get older I find myself more aware of my mortality and the injuries going down will cause to my body. So, I want to acquire solid gear.

I started doing some research and custom suits sure look nice but the price is WAY up there. Like $2k+ (i.e. Vanson Leathers). And, I am leaning towards a two-piece suit for multiple reasons. Right now, I'm thinking about the following three suits ATM (each are hyperlinked):

1. AGV Sport Mirage 2pc; or
2. AlpineStars Stage 2 pc; or
3. Joe Rocket GPX Type R 2 pc.

Each in the solid black model (like my bike, and helmet). I'm leaning towards the AlpineStars because it's perforated and I live in Las Vegas. Anyone have any thoughts on brand? Durability? Safety? Personal Experience with any of the above? Thanks.

PS

Picked up some boots the other day (also hyperlinked -> Setup Vision). I wore them all day yesterday and they seem like a nice balance of price, comfort and protection. Worked well on the bike and also were okay going into and out of stores and walking around.

Sidi

Welcome JM

Had some Sidi boots. They were incredibly comfortable on the bike & walking BUT they were supposed to be waterproof & leaked in heavy rain. Swapped twice coz of this, in the end exchanged for another make.

I guess waterproof is not a real need where you are.

Can't help with the other stuff........
