  • Did i do ok ?

    Gidday all. I spent $1071 on bike safety gear today. I were a bit rushed but think i did ok. i got

    1 pair Alpinestars leather pants
    1 Dainese back protector (Wave 2)
    2 Tinted Shoei visors
    1 pair Alpinestars GP Plus gloves

    After reading a few of the stories about guys coming off and seeing how MANY people are coming off i thought it may be a wise move.

    PS: Rupes, i think it was your attempt to save a few bucks on bridge tolls that finally made me see how easy it was to come unstuck.

    Rupes, you owe me $1071

      I hope you never find out that your money was well spent, cause I'm sure glad I spent $2000 on a suit and alpinestars a few years ago ( I had a near fatal).
      Well done mate, safety gear is a wise man spending

        I just forked out $1300 for a Spyke 1 piece suit for riding at the track and consider it money well spent

          The way I see it, you cant put a price on safety. Money spent on safety equippment is always money well spent.

                  Good thing to do!!
                  The back protector is in my opinion almost as important as the helmet..

                          That is cheaper than skin-graffs, and FEELS better than roadrash
