Purchasing Gear sizing

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Bosco, Jun 2, 2008.

  1. Who's the best place to go to for gear in CBR?
    not necessarily the cheapest but offer good service etc etc?

    Only thing I know about the shops here is that they're all next to p0rn shops :p
  2. I guess CMC is probably the best place to go... there's not a whole lot of choice here unfortunately :(

    CMC Fyshwick/Mitchell
    TJ's in Braddon have a smallish range of gear but sometimes stuff the other shops don't have

    I think that's about all we have really??
  3. changed the topic... had a fit of some of the jackets..

    how do fit up leather jackets? should it be tight? snug? a bit loose? etc etc?

    same with gloves whats the go there???

    I have a hard time fitting on normal clothes let alone this :p
  4. sit on the bike, is it comfy? Yes? good; No? bad.

    Does it fit well everywhere else? (i.e. not too tight, not too loose, no good having a jacket if when you come off it's going to slide all over the place.
  5. the one I tried on felt good, but ever so slightly tight in one or 2 places....
    I take it over time it will stretch a bit?

    Didnt get to sit on a bike may have upset the people in the shop... not that they came over to help or anything.
