Riding gear for the upcoming spring and summer months
Hey all, I am planning a serious of trips on my 500 that will run 2 days to 2 weeks. I got my bike last year but put off any long distance riding until I felt comfortable enough. So this whole time I have just been riding locally and different types of roads and areas.
Anyway, as I start to prepare I am looking into a jacket and riding pants. I would like something that first and foremost will protect me and then after that I need something comfortable and water proof. I will be wearing the gear over my everyday clothes like shorts/jeans and a t-shirt.
Can anyone recommend some gear? Or stores to check out? Leather seems like it would be too hot but I wouldn't mind a leather jacked and synthetic pants.
