  • Heavy leather riding pants - from the 70's. Given to me by a friend to embarrass me - well I showed him!
  • Tourmaster leather gloves
  • over the calf leather riding boots
Principle #2
Don't spend more on gear than I spent on the bike.

Whoops - looks like I am already in violation of Principle #2
Unfortunately, once the fry pan connects with the Shoei, you should probably replace it. Vicious cycle.....
