first i want to thank the vets on this site. iv been spending the last week reading old posts and what not about first time rider bike selections and the sort. this site has made it alot easier for me to make an informed decision.
i'll be enrolling in the PRS course starting june 12. exicted for that.
anyway, my 1st question is about spine protectors. I've got a JoeRocket Alter Ego jacket. It has the foam padds in the back, shoulder and elbows. My question is to anyone with this jacket who's upgraded to a more solid spine protector. What kind did you get? Does it replace the blue pad or enforce it? Any odd issues with this jacket i may not know about?
my other question is about gloves. Is there a clear verdict on what is better? Leather or Textile? Any recomendations? Does ICBC look for a particular kind when i go for my licence?
