Ok now is where I need some help. When getting gear what brands or stuff do I really need or should I get. I looked at cycle gear website and saw some interesting stuff but I don't know what is good and what isn't.

Any suggestions......

you just come out one day for lunch and we can ride over to cycelgear Greenspoint and I can help you out with all of your needs.. Mesh would be good for the upcoming weather but LEATHER is always better... I have three sets of leathers and no Mesh at all.. I wouldn't suggest gettin gloves that are not leather.. your hands are very important to you and you need them to do your job. So get the most expensive GEAR you can afford.. lots of places to get discounted NEW gear online..

How far is that from where you work?? Cause Sam said something about possibly getting the day off or atleast he is trying to get the afternoon off..

As for a bike no clue I just want to ride I know that in the end I want a chopper but I am not picky as long as it is dependable and looks nice.
But then again I don't know anything about bikes yet, that is why I am asking for everyone's opinion

That works, I just want to kinda look around and see what kind of prices and stuff that I am going to be getting into that way I can start getting the money ready. I will call you or take over your computer or something if I find anything out.

I will see what I can do but more than likely it shouldn't be a problem. But I will let you know as soon as I can. I have to do some work remotely but I don't think that it should take that long.
