    Right now we can just hope the govt. Comes to senses by October or else we will have to buy an ISI one for the city riding atleast.

    OMG! Fine for not wearing ISI helmet, so this will make all those people wearing DOT, ECE, etc. certified helmets like an idiots (including me).
    I don't know what the hell Bureau of Indian Standards is doing or in which world they live.

    Jacket: Both are good. Take your pick!

    Gloves: Rynox Apex Evo IMO, given the Knox SPS which is used in MotoGP standard gloves.

    Saddlebags: Rynox, Dirtsack, Viaterra. No looking any further. Rynox Drystack also comes with a Rain cover, besides it being waterproof, so double advantage.

    Tailbag: Yeah that should be fine. If you already have a wildcraft bag, you need not buy a tail bag separately.

    Tankbag: Viaterra or Rynox. I am personally using the Rynox bag for years. It's flawless. My previous post shall share my experience. But stay away from rip-offs here!

    Pant/ Knee gaurd: Aspida or Mototech or the new Scoyco ones are also good.

    Seat: Ride Air is a company. You can look up for it. Only heard and seem the product never used it.

    The law is still a proposed one and they are open for comments to have any amendments made to it before it is enforced. So we can only hope to have something better if enough of us write to them to exempt helmets with international standards such as ECE, DOT.

    Who are the dealers for Shima in Chennai? I looked up the net, didn't get much info. Send out a mail to the India dealer (based out of Pune) - no responses after a week.

    But some dealers seem to deal in Shima products based on the above post? Or the person didn't buy it in Chennai? I saw his location as Chennai and hence assumed he talked to someone in Chennai.

    Spoke to ReGear, Vadapalani for Solace riding pants with Sastec 2 protector, but he is out of stock and getting new stocks by Tuesday evening or so.

    Hi!

    Looking for a Riding jacket below 10k and looking for something which comes with a rain liner. There are so many things which all of you consider while buying a jacket and while going through the thread I'm super confused. I'm confused to an extent where I'm coming down as a layman asking for three things which I need :
    1) Under 10,000
    2) Has a rain liner
    3) Should be able to wear it to office. (Not too bulky?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Stretch 11, get a Shima Xmesh jacket.
    Under 10 the choices are many but nothing with such quality. Check them in hand and you shall know.
    Also, the other jackets will be bulky. See the weight of protectors or the jacket on the website and you shall know.
