It used to be

Pink crotchless leather jump suit with metal studs in the ass

and a helmet with a sticker on the back that said "I Brake for Nothing"

But after "the incident", well.....

Couple of questions...
Do you guys wear some armor under your jackets? Say elbow pads? shoulder pads? Or the armor that comes with the jacket is enough?

The same goes for your pants, what do you wear under them?

All the time I see riders come and go with their gear on, but I can only see the outside and I always wonder what is under all that stuff.

I usually ride with:
My helmet
Gloves
MX boots
My jacket that has some soft armor
My pants are built pretty tough but the protection is close to zero, I am trying to find some decent priced knee and shin protectors.

SO what do you guys wear

thanks, if this has been discused I would appreacie direction towards a useful thread, I could not find anything very specific
Wear what you would wear if you knew you were gonna crash. Plan for the event.
For instance, I would never waste $$ on knee protection unless of course I would be needing my knees in the future!

Great topic! I don't want to crash in my current gloves so I guess it's time for an upgrade. Thanks for rattling my cage.

Mine looks kinda like this but it is the Motard silver one.






I wear this every day under my jacket or over a t-shirt if I'm just running to the store. The sternum protection kicks ass and it takes about 3 seconds to get on and off.








I dont know that there is anything more visible than this jacket. The titaniunm reflects, the white is super bright, and the black elbows and back give great contrast.





These are ok for the summertime.






These kick ass, they slip right over my work slacks and are nice and cool in 95 degree weather because of the ventilated crotch.







Cheap as hell, but offer better protection than most street boots. Very comfortable, and dont look too wierd when worn under the baggy jeans.

Yeah those are Icon Recon jeans..... I got mine on Ebay for about 50 bucks. They run a few sizes too small. I usually wear a size 34, and I needed a size 36....

I don't have alot of space for different gear, so have aspired to own a single outfit that works for all conditions. Right now it's:
Schuberth Concept 1 helmet
custom molded earplugs
(optional) Aerostich wind triangle
Motoport Ultra II stretch Kevlar jacket and pants with built-in armor
Oxstar Matrix boots
Gloves (one of several pair depending on conditions)

I never get on the bike without all this stuff on, so when purchasing I look for easy-on and off. For cold weather I have Goretex liners, top and bottom, a zip-in thermal layer; for real cold I have an electrified primaloft jacket and I put optional plexi knee fairings on my bike. Have not tried the Motoport in extreme cold yet, but so far in conditions from 40-90F it's been quite comfortable.
