I purchased most of my gear online through motorcyclesuperstore.com. I could have saved a lot of money going to the gear thread here on MH. Also check the sponsor section for great deals.

Motorcycles Unlimited still has some of the leather suits they used to rent for sale. They also guarantee fit if you go through them to order.

To just get started without breaking the bank you can look thru the for sale (gear) section of this forum and find some excellent stuff. I've seen countless peeps find out that it's not for them once they experience it a few times and end up losing a bunch of money when they sell all the brand new gear at used prices.

edit: yea what CraigRR said.

So excited to get started I didn't even think about it possibly not being my cup of tea. I'll definately take that into consideration when it comes to spending. Thanks!
