Took my first spill, got some questions.

Well, went down out in fulshear this morning, no major injury or damage, just a little sore. My question is pertaining to my gear. Is there anything I should do as far as the scuffs in the leather on my pants and jacket? Also some of the stitching was damaged, do I need to have it repaired? Will the jacket come apart if I don't? Anything else I should worry about?

Thanks.

Take it to Marcello's in the galleria...the fix a lot of leathers for a reasonable price. I was very happy with the repairs they did to mine.

the problem with torn stitching is not that it will come apart right away, but if you were to lay the bike down highspeed (godforbid) that seem might completely fail and then you are fucokeled

without pics, it's hard to make a good judgement call.

The SLR is in for repairs, and I couldn't get the damage to come out in phone pics. I'll just take them up to Marcello's. The damage to the gear isn't really that bad at all, but like someone mentioned, I'd hate to go down next time and have the stitching come apart on me.

Thanks

have the leather repaired, if your lid hit the street with anything more than you laying down afterwards then it needs to be repalced or recertified and replaced is cheaper

Helmet is still good, didn't touch the road surface, tumbled around on the grass a bit but no real impact. After cleaning off all the grass and dirt the scuffs on the leathers look almost like nothing, I should have the slr back tomorrow I'll try to snap some pics. Either way I'm having the damaged stitching repaired.

I don't see why pics are an absolute necessity, since i never asked anyone to assess the damage. I stated the damage "scuffs and damaged stitching" all i was looking for really was a recommendation on where to have it repaired. Since the damage is clearly stated it's as simple as needing to know whether or not the stitching needs to be repaired, the obvious answer would be yes, and where I could go to make that happen, but thank you anyway for not contributing anything even remotely helpful.
