I get all my stuff from www.parts411.com because it is CHEAP. Only catch is that you obviously cant try things on before you order, so make sure you know what size you need.

Brands? My favorites
Leathers: Alpinestars, Teknic
Helmet: Suomy, Shoei, Arai
Gloves: A*
Boots: Sidi, Gaerne, A*

I like my alpine*'s SMX. Go try on different boots and see which fit you best.

BTW check the FS section I have a nifty Honda track bike listed
