I have a helmet, mesh/carbon fiber gloves, and a Tourmaster Intake mesh jacket with armor. I really really need to get some pants next.
Edit: Forgot to add my boots, they arn't motorcycle boots, but they have a saftey toe and reinforced shank in the sole. Really good ankle support... but just not padded or armored like some good motorcycle boots.
Full face helmet, jacket, gloves, steel toed boots, crash pads beneath jeans. Jacket is the Olympia motosport Mustang jacket(cordura) which has plenty of vents. It's a little warm in Summer, but safety first.
gloves, boot, either my heavily padded JR alter ego or teknic leather jacket, JR padded overpants, helmet, something extra over my back wheather that be my backpack (most of the time) or my icon spine/chest protector.
i have over $1K invested in gear. when people ask me why i tell them "gear is cheaper than new skin"
