I've been on here for a while but recently signed up as I will be buying an 09 cbr600. I have also been doing quite a bit of research however I'm now stuck and need a bit of help.
I'm planning on just purchasing helment/jacket/gloves as I already have boots. I would like to get pants but I'd want to save a bit of money. At holeshot they're offering me the icon overlord jacket as a part of my package. I've read reviews about the jacket and they don't seem to be too good.
My question is, should I stick with the overlord jacket or go buy something better. I've been looking at the alpinestars gp plus leather jacket for the longest time but that is now discontinued. And alpinestars doesn't have anything as good in the same price range. I would like to buy the alpinestars gp pro jacket but it feels like it may be too much for a beginner. However I would like to go to track days once I get pants and when I become a better rider. Also I'm aware that alpinestar jackets attach to their pants. So would this be the better choice in the long run?
edit: I also forgot, I'd like to get frame sliders too, holeshot offered those to me for around $150 and $150 per hour for labour. To me that doesn't seem right. Labour cost, I don't know about, but the sliders for 150? I've searched up woodcraft online and they sell 07+ cbr ones for 69.99
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
