Hi All, I have just posted my first post on Netrider in the Welcome Lounge. My second is here. I am new to motorcycling and would like to start purchasing my kit. I do have a major criteria for my first gears - It has gotta be discrete in that it doesn't scream biker and it can be used in another social situation, like visiting my anti-biking GF's parents. Once I get a bike, that's a problem for another day. I will be acquiring the gears slowly - at sales etc - but will pay $$$ for good protective gear that fit my criteria. I plan to limit my training and rides for fair weather. To start of, I am thinking of pairing Draggin jeans k-legs with knee armor. Does anyone have experience with this combination? Any recommendations for the type of knee armor? Can anyone recommend any good riding boots that looks like normal boots and is comfortable when walking? Why do some jackets have armor in the shoulders and elbows but not back? Thanks in advance.
