Ok this will be the last thread I post about leathers. I've boiled it down to 2 choices here.
1) A* GP-R Jacket.
A* Track or Apex Pants
A* SMX-5 Boots
2) Teknic Chicane Jacket
Teknic Chicane Pants
Gaerne GRW Boots
Each is more or less a package I've worked out with different shops and I would save roughly $400 going the Teknic way. But I noticed that the 2011 Teknic leather pants are made of goatskin and not cowhide.. and I've heard bad things about goatskin.
I'm still new at this whole game and I'm not a very hard rider. Is it worth going with the A* stuff? Or will the goatskin do.
