Couple of good deals on Alpinestar & Sidi boots.

Alpinestars S-MX 5 Boots Alpinestars Competition Accessories

Sidi Vertigo Air Boot - White - Closeout Sidi Competition Accessories

More than inclined to get a Vertigo Air in white! Let's go figure.

Edit - (Ahh forgot that they don't ship to India). Still good discounts, if you can get a friend to carry them here.

Really nice gear procured there!

Kunal my guess is it will go with any Busa as long as the bike and the gear complement each other irrespective of the year of manufacture. That said I am sure all of them people who want to ride without any hassles whatsoever have gotten their monsters officialised which is the absolute correct thing to do

DSG Phoenix Jacket Red - Rs5,500.00

How good is this one?

Please suggest a helmet in the range of 2500-3000.

Among the Indian jackets, DSG is supposed to have the best build quality. If you're going o drive only in hot places and don't have a real winter, I'll recommend their mesh jackets better. Otherwise the Phoenix is good enough, but can be crazily hot during summers.

I personally have never liked the quality of DSG, my opinion! I wanted to buy gloves sometime back, checked these DSG one's for Rs. 2000, was surprised to notice the lack of protection. There was virtually no protection other than the knuckles.

Well about jacket's, i suggest if you guys have anyone who is coming down to India from US or something do ask them to bring the jacket alongwith. The DSG jacket for Rs.5000 is so not worth. I picked this Fieldsheer Jacket for Rs.5000.

Now that's gotten me in a fix again!

I live in Delhi. The summers and winters are both excruciatingly harsh. Now that winter is over, should I pick up a mesh for the summer?

I have no one coming over from the US, so getting one from there will be difficult.

I am eventually stuck with either DSG or Cramster.

If you pay for it!

Alpinestars go for over 10k. I don't have that sort of money to spare.

:(
