"Where to:" New Gear & Paint

Hey guys,

I'm new to the Houston motorcycle scene and I'm not used to all of the dealerships and places to buy gear. I'm from Central PA which afforded me about 4 dealerships within 25 miles, none that were half the size of what we have down here! Where do you guys recommend I go to buy new gear? I am leaving what I have back up North so I don't have to lug it all back and forth when I go back to visit. In case it influences your response, I am looking for high quality leathers. I have always worn a 2 piece leather suit on the road and had some Sidi boots. Do many places down here sell Scorpion gear, I love their stuff for some reason.

Another question: Can you guys give me names of painters in Houston. All I want is one color pearl white on the whole bike. Can you guys give me an estimate for what you think it should cost to paint all of the plastics on a brand new bike? I paid $350 if I remember correctly back in PA.

Thanks,
Steve

$350 Sounds About Right, In The Sponsors Area But Motorcycles Unlimited Can Suit You And Tony At House Of Paint Is A Great Hook up.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you live in Pennsylvania? Some of the best backroads in this country are in central PA

I was right in the middle of the state. Graduated from Penn State (Centre County) in 2011 and moved away soon after. I am leaving bikes up there just because it is such a great place to ride! There were AWESOME roads within miles of my parents house. I'm going to miss it.
