Gear for a big boy

Where in Houston (I live on the Northside so this side of town would be better...but can travel) can I get gear tomorrow ... XL Helmet and XXL Jacket .. in stock. Looking to by inexpensive at this point since I just dropped 6k ... 150-200 range on the helmet and jacket. Looking for Black Lid and Black/White, Black/Kawi Green, or Just plain black XXL Jacket.

Seems if you are the size of toothpick gear is easy but being a little on the chub side I may have to hit the net.

If you can stretch it to $249, Motorcyclegear.com has 2 different Shoei Qwest helmets on closeout, which is an awesome deal for a great helmet. I have spoken to the guys at Motorcycles Unlimited and they will measure you and order the jacket you want with a fitment guarantee.

Not to sound like poser... but noob question. Does anyone really give a if you gear matches the bike? I figure the more you stand out better people see you on the road. So a loud Lid and maybe a jacket thats close to the bike color would be how I would go .. not sure. Im a guy .. the only thing I worry about in life matching is my equipment fitting in her equipment.

Looking to get something tomorrow morning. I am not getting out on the street even in the neighborhood with a lid and jacket. That Shoei price is awesome I will check it out. I just hope someone in town has something I can get tomorrow cause I am not just gonna sit in the driveway looking at this thing.

Dude, deliverytime from motorcyclegear was like 2 days. For the price, it is worth waiting a couple days

I'm sorta in the same boat and found very little of anything on the north.

quality wise you're SOL. CycleGear carries some stuff but the quality shows.

Alright .. just got back from Motorcycles Unlimited .. HJC CL-16 Black .. Joe Rocket Reactor Black.. awesome service .. spent alot of time with me to get a correct helmet fit .. HJC fits good but of course an $800 Bell was like a glove but out of my price range at this time.

Now that i spend 7k in two days its time to take the wife out and show her a good time. And no I havent even taken the bike for a spin yet. After 17 yrs I know to make sure she is happy before I am ... and everything is kewl.

You can check out two wheel toyz and wild west honda too, both local sponsor thats a bit of a drive but worth it! They have a pretty huge inventory with lots of selection.
