Just curious what other riders are wearing. I'd say this bike lends itself well to all types (styles) or riders (except those who wear chaps :rolleyes:)

Myself, I wear full gear all the time, I figure I'll be happy if (when) I have a fall. That said, I'm not hear to judge, if a t-shirt is your deal - so be it.

Helmet: HJC

Jacket: Furygan Akira
Clothing Jacket Sportswear Sleeve Motorcycle accessories


Pants: Furygan Veloce
Clothing Black Trousers Jeans Outerwear


Boots: Dianese Torque Out

Gloves: Alpine Star S2

I've been on an endless hunt for pants that fit me well and look good. I may buy the Cortech Latigo suit or their two-piece leathers.

I ride with a Icon Hooligan 2 jacket, an HJC CL-16 helmet (might be switching to an Arai Defiant, designed for upright riding) Still looking for a good, comfortable pair of riding pants. Typically wear mechanics leather gloves. Need some more robust gear for sure, but it beats basketball shorts and a tank top.

I have a bunch of gear, and what I throw on really depends on the weather and how long of a ride I'm going on (trip, or day ride, etc).

Most commonly though, you will find me in the following:

Rev-it Cayenne Pro Jacket



Rev-it Carnaby Riding Jeans



Frey Daytona Urban GTX boots



Helimot Buffalo Pro Gloves



Shoei X-Twelve Helmet

I hear that Cordura material that those Rev-It Jeans are made of is bombproof and still flow a lot of air? I live in AZ, just curious do they breath for warmer weather?

They breathe about as much as a pair of Levis... but it doesn't get Arizona hot here in the Bay Area. It would be nice if they came in a color other than a sun soaking dark blue.

They're super comfortable though, and you don't look like you're wearing riding pants when you're off the bike.

WTH......you wear all that protective gear and then you wear JEANS??? Are you kidding me? Do you not want to protect your legs if you go down. Road rash on the legs hurts too! Buy yourself a good pair of leather riding pants, then come back on here and tell us how much gear you wear!

In 2005, I low-sides on the street at approx. 85 MPH wearing a full leather suit, Shoei RF900 helmet, Sidi boots, AGV armored riding gloves and didn't have even a scratch on me. I can guarantee that you would have plenty of road rash with jeans on.

In 2010, I low-sided in Turn 3 at Barber wearing a full leather suit, helmet, gloves, boots and slide from the inside of the track all the way across, approx, 70' and into the gravel trap on the outside of the turn........again, not a scratch on me. In both instances the leather suit took a lot of the abuse of sliding on the right side.
