well I have to be honest, I did some looking and looking to find the stuff I wanted, and then I had to wait for the sale of my Jeep to have the cash. BUT I told myself when I sell the Jeep, before I buy anything, or pay off bills with the leftover $$...I am buying "good" gear.
From there, it is all about finding the best price. The leathers were really not as bad as I thought it would be. Yeah, I liked the $800 set, but honestly, the one I "wanted" was a really good deal from Hammy. OK, actually the second one, as Brian let me know my first choice was discontinued...and NOONE else online had that info out.
The leathers are still in transit, but will let you know when I get to put them on. I did a ton of reading and research and am hoping the AGV is as comfortable as everyone said.
I *almost* went with SIDI boots...I was really looking at them hard. I have heard they are great and very comfortable. BUT, I have an issue with buying shoes or boots online. I couldn't find ANY SIDI ones around to try on to get a exact fit. My local Cycle Gear had the AS boots, so I could try on all 15 sizes and find the right fit.
Can one ray of light change the world? Depends on who is holding it.
