    Riding/N00B Gear Advice

    @nostep - Thanks for the heads up. The Voile look similar to the Giant Loop Pronghorn straps. I'm going to have order one to compare apples to apples. The Voile 20" is $7/each - Giant Loop Pronghorn 18" is $29 for a 2/pk. The Voile are WAY less expensive, especially if they're the same quality. Voile offers co branding...I wonder...

    Riding/N00B Gear Advice

    @shutterrev - I'm bringing some gear to show what I have (not selling) for the other new guys to check out and to compare to other peoples stuff. I was hoping the experienced riders would bring an array of gear for us Noobs to check out. I want to see what other people use and their thoughts on it, pro's/con's. I feel, if you or anyone has stuff to give/trade/sell to us Noobs, bring it - all that much better...win/win for all. In fact, weren't you the one who brought up the swap meet idea???

    Riding/N00B Gear Advice

    @A 2 - Please bring photo's (on your phone). I'm very interested and have questions, photo's will help. I'm looking at getting one and doing a minimal build - e-trac, shelf, folding bed/couch, just basic's.

    Noob Clothing advice

    @DSM8, hopefully you get experienced riders to show up with gear to show off (bring it in their cage). They've gone through the "learning curve" - their user experience might save us Noob's time and money. I'll bring my Klim Carlsbad Jacket & Pants, a Moose Racing XC1 Body Armor shirt, gloves (to show - NOT sell) I'm hoping others bring Body Armor shits/vest, light weigh riding gear (jacket/pants) so we can see/compare them before we buy. I've seen that HWK gear online and someone on Youtube uses it - hope it comes, would love to see it up close. THANKS for hosting this event!!!

    MotorcycleGear.com is having a moving sale - might be able to find some stuff here. Example: Klim 2020 Marrakesh Jacket $309 - on the Klim site new are $420. Worth looking at some of the gear... https://www.motorcyclegear.com/street/moving_sale/

    WOW...had the same thing happened to me. I was rear-ended at an intersection, went sliding across the ground...like you, the knife in my pocket acted as a slider. The clip was scrapped up, but it saved me a lot of pain. Made me wonder if I should carry a knife in both pockets...

    New Bike Day

    Congratulations, that a nice looking scoot... Now the spending starts, riding gear, bike protection, luggage, etc. But, that's also the fun part.

    I'm good either weekend. Let's get it on the books... @Goofy Footer where the heck did you find that video??? We're going to have to check your movie selections...most of us are into action, shoot'm ups and throw in a bike/car chase and we're happy. But you...
  11. That Smell (not Lynyrd Skynyrd)...there's nothing like the smell of a 2 stroke. @Goofy Footer - Excellent video, even if I was more 70's, 80's...

    @spazegun2213 - couldn't agree more with you. Hope some of the more experienced people put on the "gear swap". I said it earlier in this string - I want to see/hear the experienced rider's pro's/con's on riding gear.

    Long and Hard

    @350thumper you get deep with your philosophical writtings... The reason I'm not riding currently is because I'm recovering from leg surgery. I've been sitting around watching TV, videos and reading for 6 weeks with a couple more ahead of me. When I get cleared to put weight on my leg...it's going to be like the Thin Lizzy song "Jailbreak"... And yes...it's your turn to buy next time - lol

    I find this topic Very Helpful - Thanks for asking @SlowpokeShorty @Zubb "I pretty much have MM’s whole showroom in my garage. Come on over and check it out if you like. I’ll share what I like and don’t like and why" @shutterrev Let's do another group swap meet / bbq sometime When I'm cleared to ride again, I'd like to see/hear your pro's/con's on riding gear. I want good gear - but how do you tell? Site & Store reviews are good, but you don't know the people giving them and they might be paid. This thread is great for Noob's like me because, if people share their real life experience/knowledge of gear, I'll have a better idea of what's what. The cost of good gear will be worth every penny...if is saves me from injury.
