  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: My first leathers - do I need to go crazy?

    I'm looking for my first leathers. I have the money so that's no prob but I have a dilemma. I have been looking at the JR GPX 2 piece which is reasonable at 849 retail before any discounts and the Alpinstars 2 piece for 1449. The JR has soft armour and the Alpinstars has hard motogp armour. ...

  3. Get this fixed, or get new gloves?

    Few days ago one finger seam on my Held gloves has come undone. Had these for few years, so I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Question is, should I get it repaired, or just buck up and buy new set of gloves.

  8. How do you take care of your leather gear?

  10. Ebay leathers - quashahiabdu

    http://www.ebay.ca/sch/quashahiabdu/m.html Anyone bought from this seller? Not going for the race-replica-rip-offs, or superhero dupes :batman, but the generic suits are priced cheap. Maybe too cheap... leaves me hesitant. The feedback is good, member since Oct 2014.
