What gear do you wear?

Do you wear gear? If yes post up your gear setup for others to see and maybe even rate the items out of 5 stars. How many stars would you give the gear you rock?

Rating RF-1000 would be bad....so here goes, to start with very expensive helmet, no Fog-free shield for it (but they have one call Pin-lok system), can't replace liner and heavy helmet.....but comfortable to wear....don't get one size bigger thinking it will not loosen up because it will and it will be too loose where is will spin around overall rating I give 5 out of 10.

GMax GM68 helmet rating 6 out of 10, for little over $100 it has quite a bit of vents, wind noise is a bit much, not too heavy, has a light in the back of the helmet, snug fit, overall this helmet is well worth the money, you can have 3 of these for the price of other helmet, you can't go wrong.

I just have a Scorpion 700 helmet in the matt white Scorpion logo and a Power Trip mesh jacket. I really like the jacket actually. You can really feel the airflow going down the road. The Scorpion seems to fit well but jeez it looks HUGE on my head! I dont have any experience with this stuff though, just what ive bought but i think the helmet is pretty quiet actually. Ive GOT to get leather soon. Looking at the Icon Daytona jacket. The scariest thing of all is have no gloves, just cant afford it right now so hopefull over the winter ill get the Icon Merc short gloves.

I like to give you tips on buying gloves for riding....hope you look into it before making a decision on your first glove.... I went through several gloves, I always purchase gloves that are not all 100% leather due to venting however I found out they don't last as long as 100% leather and here is why......if you look at this glove the top part material will get snagged up and come apart and also not as strong as leather and you end up getting new pair of glove after several months.....I always put my gloves in my helmet when I reach somewhere to keep everything together.....whenever I pull them out of my helmet that material get snagged on inside of the helmet liner and several months later you have a hole in it.....especially between fingers.....they are not solid like 100% all leather and not partial or combine with other material....like Power Trip glove.....I also have other all leather glove that this one is good or this one....they are expensive so make a good choice the first time and you will have one for a long time....I have learned my lesson so I want to pass it along
