I own an American bike; I'll hold out for a Made-in-USA jacket. I keep eye-fucking used Vansons on fleabay.

 

Gloves, I've been lusting over 'roo Held's.

 

Boots... I have no clue where to even start.


Both off-the-rack and custom-made Vanson jackets are very, very nice...  Here's mine with me screwing around on my GSX-R  ...LOL...  Hooliganz...!!!

These don't look awful for $175

And these for $30.

I have fat stubby hands. Not sure a women's M/L would work or not. Usually men's S is tight across, but M fingers are too long.

 

Or don't bother with this low level shit?

 

 

 

These look great:

Need something warm, though. My hands start going numb even in my lined, elkskin gauntlets after 30 min or so on 40 degree days.

 I had a pair similar to these (GP Pro).  The gauntlet is a little short and asymmetrical and my jacket kept popping out so I sold/traded them.  They had great fit/feeling though

I lost half a finger in those. Now I wear a custom pair of Helds.

Well damn!!!

 

I had a pair of Helds Phantoms (?) but they didn't break in properly so I gave them away

My Cortech Scarab gloves are *decent* for cool weather riding. Once you get under 40 degrees I think the only realistic option is heated gear. At the minimum, heated gloves or grips (preferably gloves).

Furygan makes  very decent gloves for their price, I have a pair of AFS-18 and they're perfect for spring/summer/autumn.

 

 

 

There's a winter version too but for winter i use military gloves with silk undergloves. That said, i very rarely ride under 50 degres. If i have too, I use cheap heating pads in the glove, between the glove and the underglove. They last a few hours.

Nice! Thanks! Brand seems popular in Europe, but not so much here in the 'States; I had never heard of them.

 

I just bought these:

To get a feel for sizing and fit and finish.

 

If everything checks out, I'll get these for winter, as they look great:
