Hi folks, first time caller, long time listener... I am planning on doing a bit more riding and as such, am getting some new gear (jacket, pants, boots). Primarily i want it to keep me safe in a spill, and alternatively last a few years (in the case that i don't spill). I tried on: Jacket - Dainese New Delmar, Pants - Dainese Pony Leather pants, Boots - Dainese Torque Pro Out Boots. I liked them all, and am thinking of getting these particular items, although i could be talked around if there were comparable/better brands. I was talked out of the Alpinestars by the sales guy, but my first question to the forum is : Are there other brands i should be looking at? Also, with the strong Aussie dollar ($1AUD = $1.05 US!!), i am contemplating ordering from the US, but am having difficulty finding Dainese stuff on sites that don't charge excessively for shipping. So my second question to the forum is: Is there a US site that stocks good priced Dainese stuff with a reasonable shipping price to Australia? (i have looked through the forums and cannot find an answer to these specific questions) Your collective knowledge/wisdom is appreciated.
