UPS came up to my door and gave me the package.

Its an AlpineStar GP Plus Leather Jacket. I got it from Terra Powersports and couldn't be any happier with them.

Here it is once the package is open


What the jacket looks like


Lastly, with most of my gear (I have Icon Field Armor Chukka boots)


I like the way it fits. It is snug around the chest area. The waist area has velcro straps so it makes it more secure there. I could have opted for a smaller size as the arm area is a little loose when it is straighten out. Besides that, love it. My favorite part of the package is the hanger. It has the AlpineStar logo on it. lol :p

I'm looking forward to ride a motorcycle this summer. As some of you may know, I was deciding whether or not I should start with a smaller bike. I have decided and put a deposit on the new 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250. I should be getting a call on the bike this week.

i guess is should have gone smaller. I went to the dealer in fresno (My grandparents lives there and they just so happen to be five minutes away from one) and tried out their jackets. That's how I found my size which is 40us (50 euro).

The gloves I got is AlpineStar GP Plus. That one is fit real nice and snug

Nice gear man, same jacket I had when I had my 05 R6, may it R.I.P. I now have a Icon Motor head leather, when I first got it I could barely lift my arms above my head. That was a year ago and it fit's like a glove now.
