    Sunny Side UP & others.... Well I can do the job for you guys give me one week or some more time...

    And the pitcure will be clear ...

    ATGAT - Agreed ... but ATGAT doesnt only means wearing gears, ATGAT should be for our safety not for some tag or sake of wearnig, if you want to be ATGAT that doenst mean one should buy any Jacket, Pant, Gloves, etc etc & Helmet, till what extend it protect you is important, you can put Thermacol inside your Denim or Cargo too & you can put those Thermacol or foam padding inside your Regular Shirts too... I Hope you got my point.

    Example - Just because you/we have 5k in hand at the moment you/we should not go for everything in that, go for best available that's it.

    Another Example - My friend was riding on his p135to Shirdi (MaHarasthra), wearing local helmet, a Diesel Denim Jacket costing more then 3k & a Sparx...What happenes next ? Bike skid & he fel with his gf as a Pillion, Helmet got into 2 pieces from left side, Scratches on his body from Head to Waist (left side) its been 2 month but still those stiches & scartches are visible.


    @Prince - Yup will be doing after my next tour which will start by this Saturday. but all i can say is in 2.3 - 2.7k range these 3 Gloves will fit anybody requirment...

    1) Cramster TRG II - 2300/- "Even after being new I feel it very comfortable to wear, though I don't think its fully leather gloves but can provide very good protection for sure. Gloves looks good too, finishing is also good. Good for Daily & Touring use (Which I Prefer).

    2) DSG Carbon 2750/- "Used it before buying TRG II, again very comfortable & gives you that soft feeling on palms, same as TRG II but Leather seems to be more thick compare to TRG II & also there is carbon protection over the wrist. but its a Huge & bulky one.

    3) Rjays Swift - 2500/- 3,000- "Genuine Leather & Comfortable but on little higher cost. although worth."

    AGV and Cortech gloves are pretty much on the same breed if you ask me. Comparing Cortech, I'd say both more or less weight the same when it comes to quality and usage.

    this is know, i was saying that it is neither waterproof nor have ventilation. this means neither good in this nor in that. instead one with separate rain liner is better- gives both.

    Every textile motorcycle gear out there, having a slide on the tarmac is either gonna be ripped and melted depending on the slide, speed, but either one of the both is inevitable. This is where leather comes in, which offers good abrasion resistance and moreover you can't even see the difference that the jacket has kissed the road. Just a normal dust off and polish would make it more or less back to old form.

    thats ok, i was saying that whether there are good mesh jackets since you said all mesh jacket will get ripped off in moderate accident, so in a long high speed slide, mesh will provide little abrasion resistance.

    After hitting the ground couple of times, from experience I can say that according to me, the Most CRITICAL Protection one needs is on his (in terms of importance))

    [1] Head (HELMET)- No head no life

    [2] Foot (RIDING SHOES) - You don't want a mangled foot

    [3] Knees (RIDING PANTS with Knee Armor) - A tap on the knee hurts like hell

    [4] Hips (protection on the sides of the Hips) - Yeah it hurts bad too

    [5] Palms (GOOD QUALITY GLOVES) - One usually falls on ones hands


    Riding Jackets (although protective) are more to satisfy the emotional need of the biker. Something that makes him LOOK LIKE A BIKER. Nevertheless a good quality jacket with a good outer shell protects from abrasion in case of a slide over tarmac.

    Comparing the Width and Thickness of Riding Jacket Armor while the Knees and Foot remains dangerously unprotected is useless.

    Instead I'd get some decent protection for the Feet (a pair of PROPER RIDING SHOES) and Invest in a protective RIDING PANT (not gung ho about external knee guards).

    I guess, you've ticked all the boxes a human could arguably have in one's body for protection. But until one takes a spill and realizes his flesh is worth the moolah chucked on riding gears, no one is gonna realize it.

    +1 to that part, even more pluses. I myself have come across many "odd ball" situations wearing my gear. Quite a few times, it's made me think, should I really wear them, just so that I don't look like one. But until I had a fall, and luckily my gears were there to save my arse for the good, I realized the importance of ATGATT, long back though.

    I would say most people out there, if not quite a few, purchase a safety gear not out of sheer safety, but just to make sure they're accepted to the cult, and I very much completely agree to your point. A prime example would be my family with which they were a little hesitant on me spending extravagantly on riding gears, but not they're used to it now, even if I forget it, asking, hey where is your jacket, where is your helmet, so on and so forth.

    But you have a very valid point there.

    Cheers!
