Hi all, I have decided that I would like to join the dark side and get myself a motorbike. The training part is obvious; The Direct Access training / testing route looks ideal. However, what's not so clear is what kind of gear would be best to get. Within reason, money isn't a huge concern as I'd rather be safe than rich (that's not to say I go around burning 50s though). I'd be using the bike for commuting, visiting friends etc, so I'd welcome advice on boots / jackets / trousers / gloves people like. Helmets, I'll go and try a load on in a decent shop. Cheers, RB.
