Im studying at massey and im now thinking about some gear to get for when my bikes done,

id rather not wear all my gear into classes geek so whats the easiest best looking gear? dont want anything in your face just plain blackish, leather?

take a backpack and throw it all in there? are boots really necessary? could tie helmet gloves n goggles too the bike i guess?

what do you guys wear or do?

cheers max

Helmet and gloves. When it's wet, waterproofs. When it's dry, whatever you normally wear. I have fallen off at all speeds and with no helmet. Leather isn't any better than plastic when you're sliding down the road and no material is going to help when you hit something solid going fast. Bugger all to do with age.

Yeah don't get me wrong, I wear full face helmet, boots, gloves, rev it jacket and pants when I ride to work but when I'm cruzing round town and maybe short stints in the hundy zone I can handle jeans, flannel and open face.

As a serious answer to the actual post look at the rev it stuff they got a good selection and they do broad styles from one piece racing leathers to tassel jackets and chaps

Pretty much...go to a bike shop try on their stuff to get sizing then there is heaps on tardme for cheaps. I reckon goog gloves and boots that arnt guna pull off ya feet in a crash are essential...but it just an opinion...

A one piece waterproof thingy keeps ya warm and dry..ish and usually folds up small to fit in .....get a bagger.ha ha

Some good sunglasses too if you're wearing an open face... otherwise feels like someones sand papered your eyeballs.
