Thanks. I like your Shoei X-11 but I think I'll go for an RF-1000 because it suits my head shape more.

Cool! So your daughters ride too?

I like the full suit. Is the sizing similar to jackets? Those SIDI Vertigo boots have been on my mind for sometime. I like the new TCX boots too.

My wife and eldest daughter rides but the youngest nope, she's still too young to ride I just brought the helmet for her to use when she back rides.

The suit sizing is different from jacket sizing sometimes the suit is either 1 size smaller or bigger than the jacket depending on the suit brand. For me I wear size 42 for Joe Rocket and FieldSheer, medium size for the SHIFT leather jacket. When I ordered the suit, size 40 fits me well. I just prefer that the suit hugs my body well for comfort and safety.

Yeah TCX is a great boots & nice choice. Which TCX boots in particular you have in mind? TCX SS Performance 2 or their 08 line the Competizione RS, S or the S GTX? Puma does also have a good boots (Puma 1000 V2).

One of the guys that used to ride with us crashed last night on his Hayabusa and is in ICU with face and head injuries. He never used to wear a helmet. Just goes to show how important it is to wear one and not take things for granted. I pray that he recovers soon.

Please wear a helmet.

I pray that he recovers soon and others learn this lesson as well.

Also, to get rid of the fungus, keep them under direct sunlight when you have a nice, hot sunny day. the fungus will disappear within a couple of hours.
