A really good suggestion would be buy the best you can afford! Don't compromise! Your gear will out last your motorcycles. I've probably owned 5/6 motorcycles in the last 25 years and have used the same Areostich Roadcrafter on all of them. Not saying that's the only thing I've worn. But I'm still using it none the less. It wasn't cheap then, they aren't now! My dad always said buy the best you'll rarely be disappointed! Select what you buy carefully! You can get a lot of information on this site as to what people like and don't like. Most of us have been around the block. A lot!
