A thread to post all your favorite gear so I know what to buy :)

Been dirt riding but didn't fully gear up as I never jumped...

I live my Arai helmet. I wear moto style gloves in the summer. Icon and AGV gloves. And a T-shirt. Heh
I do have an ICON jacket I really like
For helmets, I have used Arai, Shoei, Shark, AGV, and Bell. I just got the Bell Star and haven't taken a ride in it yet so I can't really comment much on it, but I love the AGV and Arai helmets.

For jackets and pants, I'm partial to Alpinestars only because they seem to fit me best. I have other gear from Scorpion, Teknic, Dainese, Spidi, and Cortech.

For gloves, I currently use RS Taichi GP-Max gloves and Alpinestars GP Pro gloves.

For boots, I use Sidi Vortice and Alpinestars SMX-Plus boots.

The most important thing is to pick gear that fits you because if it doesn't fit or is uncomfortable, you'll be less likely to use it and that defeats the purpose of having gear.
I love Dainese leathers. Well made and armored. I currently have an AGV helmet and I really like it; I had 2 Icon helmets before and would probably not get another one.

Get full gauntlet leather gloves (Held is good) and full boots (A*, Dainese).
What do you plan on doing? If just stunting then the icon body armor aith some strap on knee/shin guards, decent shoes and a good helmet and gloves would do. If you plan on hitting the street then I'd say leather armored jacket, decent kevlar jeans, good helmet and gloves and some motorcycle specific boots. I like my sidi street burners, but to each his own.
