jacket, boots, gloves and sissy bar

    I'm off to the USA soon, and I thought i'd try and pick up some cheap[er] gear, particularly leather jacket, boots and gloves.

    I don't want to look like moving advertisement or a silly sports bike rider I was wondering whether people had a suggested brand or make of jacket and gloves that might suit the cruiser look?

    I was thinking maybe the Icon Retro Daytona or the DMH Daytona, but I have never tried on Icon stuff for size.

    Any recommendations on gloves and boots? Again looking for leather, and a fairly simple design.

    Also I wanted to pick up a decent sissy bar for my Roadliner, aside from the Yamaha stuff can anyone else recommend a decent brand to look at?

    I quite like the look of the Shift Vantage Leather Jacket: [media=youtube]2Jot_L4BaPM[/media]
    The youtube review says it has no back protection, but everything else i've read says that it has a pocket for foam.
