ok, dude, your "gear" is killin' me. also, your form needs a little work. try not to lock out your elbows when you ride. squeeze your legs into the tank and hold yourself up with your trunk. you should be able to take ALL the weight off your hands when you ride and still not fall over.

gear, dude. look into it. you hit the ground like that and they take you straight to the burn unit. with gear you have a chance to walk away...

p.s. welcome aboard!

Gear... :werd
Where's the best place to start? Any recommended shops in LA?

I don't start riding this full time until November. I'm just taking baby steps at the moment.

Sweet ride, but yeah, gear dude. I try to stay away from local shops, because you can usually find better deals online.

What do you guys think about over-pants?
Also looking for boots but I'm not interested in full race boots.. just going to the office.

Thanks for the thoughts!

Look up the forum sponsors and check out sportbiketrackgear.com

TJ will set you up with a great deal on some leather gear.

Get yourself a leather jacket with padding and some gauntlet gloves.

I have the alpinestars riding shoes/boots. They are pretty nice. I wear my full boots all the time now that I have them, but the other ones aren't bad for getting back and forth to the office.

This will not end well for you. :fact<--clicky


Get some gear, tan those legs, and work on your body position.
