Gear shopping.

Ok.. probably been covered, but where in town can you shop for gear. Ok.. let me expand on my question as I know any shop you can go to.

I was told of a place that has floor to ceiling helmets to try. Some place that has leathers in stock. I mean a place that has a bunch of gear AND has it in stock. As I've never had leather pants or full suit and would like to actually see it close up to see what I want to save up for. I need to try helmets as some fit big and others small, etc... is that 2 Wheel Toyz? I went to their site, but it was lacking in info (like store hours). Or another sponsor? I see a lot of stuff on ebay and don't know if I want to buy because I don't know what I'm looking at or have something to compare it too.

I use cycle gear to try the helmets on. Then order w.e I'm looking for after I know it'll be a good fit. Some places on the next you can get arai corsair for 350 shipped and I know no1 in town will match that price so...ya

just try out a few brands and see what your sz is in that particular brand. buy helmets online. trust me, you will save a load of money. look for closeout deals on Motorcycle-superstore.com or ebay

Try to give our sponsors the first shot. Impossible to keep everything stocked in every color, size and name brand.

The $15-20 bucks you save online on a piece of gear is easily worth the time and knowledge they have, the fact that you're able to actually try it on AND not having to ship it back if it doesn't fit, etc...

It's hard enough to find gear that you can actually go try on because of megastore competition; eventually you won't be able to try stuff on locally because there won't be local stores. Unless we support them, and stop trying to save 5%. If you try something on locally, please give the local vendor a shot at selling to you (most are willing to bargain).
