Hey Guys. Just a quick questin on gear...I bought myself an Ixon Jacket. Looks great, has awsome padding/protection comes with the thermal liner and water liner, great value and its CE approved. I got Tourque Shift Kevlar lined jeans..Alpinestars gloves and a KBC VR2 helmet. I have a few concerns. Although the jeans are kevlar lined, they are not fully lined and only around the knees and ass area..is this enough? Should I buy something else too? Also, the jacket is padded and protected well so im not that woried bout upperbody, but is there any armour for the knees? or is this unescarry? If you come off your knee will proobably hit first and that could cuase some seirous damage. And boots. Everyone tells me not to bother with boots but I could think of nothing worse than scraping ur feet on the ashphalt. I find it hard to move my ankles in my basketball boots so Im not sure how much movement you have in proper riding boots...are they really nescarry? Thanks all.
