There are alot of new people on this site and I thought it might be a good idea for them to be able to benefit from all the experience that has accumulated here. One area that is tough to make choices because of the bewildering variety of products on the market is riding gear. I thought it might help for everyone to put down their favorite gear. This is the first stuff you would generally reach for if you were going on a long ride and would be your first choice because of fit, quality, durability and price. Here is a list of the most generally used riding gear. List your #1 Choice after it.

Helmet - Shoei Multec
Jacket - BMW Rally 3
Pants - BMW Rally 3
Boots - Sidi Touring
Gloves - Rev-It
Rain Gear - First Gear

Some of the gear I wear depends on temp. I always take 2 and sometime 3 pairs of gloves as I'm rather fickle about the temp of my hands. With this gear I've ridden in temps from 24 to 107 in GA.

Jacket - Tourmaster Sabre 2 (under 70), Firstgear Mesh Tec (70+)
