I've read with interest the excellent contributions on this and on other forums regarding the merits/demerits of jackets and pants from different manufacturers. Aerostitch, First Gear, Motoport, Olympia, Revit, Hein Gericke and various others get frequent mentions. What surprises me is the almost total lack of comment on BMW gear. Is there a reason? One posting included "It seems to be mandatory that you wear an Aerostich if you ride a BMW" Why is this? BMW seem to have a broad range of clothing to cover all requirements. I know they're regarded as being expensive but so are some others, so I don't think that's the reason. Has anyone done any actual comparisons? Seems curious to me since we all drive the machines.
