I preface with the fact that I do not need motorcycle racing gear… so I’ve chosen a helmet that is geared more towards upright riding. So here is what I am thinking:
- Shoei Qwest - I have a fairly round skull and this is an upright helmet which is what I want
- BMW All Around boots – they seem pretty sensible for a first pair
- Joe Rocket Atomic Pant - again, seem like a decent place to start
- BMW Long Functional Socks – taller than boot
- I have a pair of FirstGear gloves already, forget the name of them though. They are nice enough.
I am looking for opinions on these – and also some suggestions on a jacket. I’ll probably hit MotoMart in Acton, MA and see what gear they have. They seem to carry a ton of FirstGear stuff there, so perhaps that will be okay.
