I just purchased the following stuff: Arai RX-7 Corsair (Nakano) Arai iridium visor Dainese Kirishima leather jacket 1 pair Draggin Jeans Dainese back protector Alpinestar Supertech boots Alpinestar GP Plus gloves Various cleaning kits 1. I heard the RX-7 is loud, due to the lightweight construction and ventilation. Is it necessary to wear earplugs during city commutes? 2. How do the standard dark tint and iridium visors compare in terms of functionality / visibility? 3. I have a feeling the Supertech boots are going to get very hot, especially with the kevlar jeans coming down over them to the ankles. I'm going to be riding into town most days to lectures and they could get a bit awkward, although I guess that is the compromise for having maximum protection. Any tips to improve comfort? Perhaps longer socks? I'm thinking about taking another pair of shoes / sneakers with me to change into if I'm gonna do much walking. Only problem then is if I take the boots off I have to worry about theft. 4. Is there any danger in wearing a belt with the jeans? Could the metal buckle pose a hazard? 5. Do you think there is anything I should add to this list which may be needed to deal with very hot / very cold / wet conditions? I plan on buying one of those $90 rain suits that goes over your jacket and pants, but what should I do about the gloves? Just not worry about it?
