My stuff :-)
I've been gearing up as I wait for my class in April, so I thought I'd share what I have so far for me and my bike.
The bike is a green '08 with 10,000 miles on it. I bought it used locally from a guy who kept it mostly stock, well maintained, and pristine. He added aluminum BMW panniers and frame, a taller windshield, various small guards, a Corbin and a homemade backrest made from a Cadillac headrest. All for $3000 :-)
I added Mefos, Moab rear shock, and progressive springs.
This is my first bike ever so I'll continue to farkle the hell out it, I'm sure..
For myself, I went over the top probably with gear, I have a friend who wears flip-flops, t-shirt and shorts on his Harley, but I need to survive this.
From head to toe:
Alpinestars Durban Gore-tex Jacket and Pants
Revit Alaska Gloves (gonna get Held Air Stream gloves for summer)
Dianese TRQ Tour Gore-tex boots (being shipped still)
So far, I just wear my gear around the house and scare the dog.
Now I'm assembling pack and camping gear, but that's a different thread.
It's been a solitary obsession so far, but I've been enjoying reading all the posts here and getting ideas. I will post my own experiences with the bike and gear as they happen.
