I've been searching online for a pair of pants and boots for warm weather riding. So far I've checked out: http://stores.ebay.com/Flyin-Brians-Deals_W0QQssPageNameZviQ3asibQ3astoreviewQQtZkm http://kneedraggers.com/ http://www.ridegear.com/index.html http://motostrano.com/ http://www.dragginjeans.com.au/ I've also been through a few other US and AU sites that aren't worth a mention. So far I have settled on Icon, Joe Rocket, and Alpinestars. I currently have a Joe Rocket mesh jacket with armour and a pair of Alpinestars short gloves. Both all black. I picked out a few that I'm interested in buying: Icon Barrier Pants http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cg...op/Pants/F-10581_Barrier_Pants.html?E+scstore Icon Super Duty Pants http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cg...Pants/F-16598_Super_Duty_Pants.html?E+scstore Icon Anthem Pants http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/shop/Pants/F-16576_Anthem_Pants.html?E+scstore Icon Recon Pants http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/shop/Pants/F-8379_Recon_Pants.html?E+scstore ICON 2006 MOTORHEAD MOTORCYCLE BOOTS WHITE SIZE 12 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ICON...temQQcategoryZ6751QQitemZ8023851544QQtcZphoto ICON 2006 FIELD ARMOR MOTORCYCLE BOOTS BLACK SIZE 12 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ICON...temQQcategoryZ6751QQitemZ8021907865QQtcZphoto SUPER-DUTY-2-MOTORCYCLE-BOOTS-BLACK-SIZE-13 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ICON...temQQcategoryZ6751QQitemZ8021907801QQtcZphoto Joe Rocket Stage 1 Pants http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/shop/Pants/F-9808_Stage_1_Pants.html?E+scstore Joe Rocket Velocity Boots http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cg...ts.html?L+scstore+rdlm4116ffb9b7b9+1135187936 At this stage I'm leaning towards the "ICON 2006 FIELD ARMOR MOTORCYCLE BOOTS BLACK" and "Icon Anthem Pants". I prefer blue jeans over black jeans, black nylon pants and leather. Black coloured clothing gets way too hot up here. I do like the blue Icon jeans with the mesh air ventilation but I also want a pair of pants that I can wear out at the same time. The only problem is that when I searched on Google for reviews on Icon gear, most of them came back negative. I've read of gloves falling apart, helmets breaking and stitching coming loose. So the effect would be disastrous if you came off your bike. Does anyone on the forums wear anything by Icon? I'm sure there are lots of people including myself that wear Joe Rocket and Alpinestars without a problem. It seems very easy to buy all the gear we can't get here overseas reliably and most likely cheaper. It seems the styling of the Icon gear is not matched by any of the other manufacturers, especially the reputable ones. Does anyone have any suggestions or sites that I should check out before i buy?
