Recommended retail stores for gear?

I have been to Cycle Gear (actually today) and bough a helmet and pants, I need a jacket, and the ones at the store today where too big. Though any recommended retail stores that sell motorcycle gear? (I know plenty of stores online)


thanx

I like the gear in your pic..... you could always take on a second job as a storm trooper, although I don't know how well if pays.

Most of my gear I purchase on ebay.... It ussually arrives in 3-4 days and leaves me with some extra money for beer

Just a clarification on what I was saying. I bought a leather jacket at CG back in Nov issue. Come April after wearing it nearly every single day I was having some issues with the zipper. They took it back and gave me a brand new, no questions asked.
