Where to buy helmet/jackets in melbourne?

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by hyper24, Jan 31, 2006.

  1. Just got my license today so been looking like crazy for a bike, but going to take my time to get the right one.

    But I still need to buy my protectivee gear, the guy at H.A.R.T said riders edge is a really good place, http://www.ridersedge.com.au/ but looking at their website it doenst look like they have a big range of helmets and jackets.
    Everything seemed more geared towards motorcross, none of the helmets on the site were even full faced.

    Im looking for a place with a huge range of helments so i can try them on to find the best fit.
    Plus a good leather jacket (not a biker looking one) something stylish.



    Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

  7. definately dont buy a helmet without trying it first, but buy online for the rest if you can, you'll save a fortune.

    just one of the many netrider discounters - www.rmgear.com.au

  12. Sorry to drag up a bit of an old thread.

    Just wanted to give Craig and rmgear a well deserved wrap. I got a 2 piece leathers suit today (http://www.rmgear.com.au/images/a 2 pce/verona.jpg).

    The suit is awesome, fits great, I can't believe how comfortable it is! I got my wife a Dyno as well, she loves it. Went riding with friends today and now a mates wife wants one as well :)

    Well worth giving him a call/email if you're looking for good quality, good value gear. The discounts from being a Netrider member far outstrip the membership fee, very good value all round.

    Cheers,

    bakz
