Shaun, If you have broad feet buy TCX, if you have narrow feet then go for SIDI. These are the two best brands for riding boots. I wear SIDI's myself. As for jackets, I have 4 Joe Rockets, 1 Power Trip(its owned by Joe Rocket) & 1 Cramster(Indian). When you are buying the jacket you can ask them for the upgrade of the spine pad which is much stronger than the one that comes with the jacket. Other brands that are just as good - Firstgear, Tourmaster, Cortech, Teknic, Shift and Icon.

Go for mesh gloves(with good knuckle & finger protection)and jackets for our weather conditions. Make sure the mesh jacket has a waterproof liner in it which you can use in the winter as well. Boots have ventilation too, so look for that when you're shopping for them. Don't forget shin/knee armor or riding pants which are armored as well.

Have you decided on which bike you're getting next? The reason I don't suggest ARAI is that they have flaps covering the hinges of the visor which results in a lot of wind noise. SHOEI's are the quietest and best venting helmets money can buy you. Hope this helps and if you need to know anything just call when you're at the store.

Any pointers? remember our first ride & last, need helmet-gloves -jacket an'all.

Good. The list is almost complete, add a pair of riding pants and knee pads too, they'll be good for the weekend rides. Remember to go all mesh on the gear.

Its advisable to go for a helmet that has bright red in it rather than a black one. It gives others better visibility of you. I'm looking for some good ones. Will post the link here so you can check them out.
