My Russel Day Long Seat

The Russel seat I bought used for my F650 allowed me to go from riding about an hour and a half max before agony set in to easily riding a half day before needing a stop. I wonder how good one custom made for me would perform. Best riding gear item I have purchased to date.

Second best thing was a heated vest. Makes spring and fall trips in Canada way more comfortable.

How tight you turning that throttle lock?!?!?! Dude.

Haven't had that problem...still can manually close the throttle. Just might have to snug it every few miles.

If someone is using a throttle lock that is so tight that you can't manually just TWIST the throttle back closed even with the lock engaged they are stupid. Most can be over-ridden with only a little bit of force. How limp are some people's wrists?

Rog, it sounds like another version of "ABS Saved My Life" or "ABS almost got me killed"....or "I don't wear my seatbelt because...."

EDZ Innershell jacket

Very thin so packs into nothing (bag included) so easy to bring along in pocket or under the seat even on sports bikes. And fits under even a tight leather jacket/suit as it's so thin.

You just won't believe how warm this thing is, I would compare putting it under my leathers to putting a gore-tex jacket outside the leathers ! And it breathes even though windproof.

Also use it for Alpine skiing if it gets colder or more windy.

Now on sale so I'll get myself another one (also available as leggings):

Oh, and the V2 spong for removing bugs from visor, also always keep under my seat: http://www.v2mal.com/visorvision/category/24

My favorite gear:

2 piece Aerostich Roadcrafter
Joe Rocket / T-Pro backpad
Sidi Strada rain boots
Lee Parks Gauntlet Deersports
Shoei RF-1000
Turtle Fur neck gaiter

When I first got my Roadcrafter I was not to happy with it. It was stiff, bulky, and well lets face it.... not the most attractive suit. After a few rides and a couple washings I have really grown to love this thing. It could not get any easier to put on or take off. It is completely practical and the best thing for a commuter since sliced bread!

Tailormade boots

The best item I ever bought was a pair of tailor made bike boots - by Tony Carrol Melbourne Australia - Tony has been making bike boots for thirty or fourty years - his boots are sensational and I still have the first pair I ever purchased and I rode in them for 17 years - true story ( my feet out grew them) and I now have my second pair - and they are sensational.

Sidi Canyon Boots. I can stand in a river 6" deep and they still won't leak. Easy to put on, no plastic crap to break. Soo very comfortable!

Recent Purchase:

Held Sprint gloves from NewEnough for $129 on closeout -total price $135.61 shipped. A total bargain for what you get.

And my GF picked up the tab for me seeing it was my birthday recently and needed to find something to give me.

Best gift/purchase EVER.

I'm a glove whore, I'll admit that! But with this one pair of gloves I can probably leave 2 or 3 other gloves home when on the road as these gloves seem to do everything that heretofore I needed 2 or 3 others to do.

This is my second pair of Helds. I don't think I'll be buying anything else from now on unless someone can show me a company that makes even better gloves at this price range.
