    Usually my nylon armoured jacket and helmet, sometimes with face shield if really cold. If on a trip leather gloves. My leather jacket is pretty heavy so that stays home until fall riding season. I usually wear boots and can't believe some guys wear sandals.

    Mostly my half shell with clear or tinted biker goggles, but I also have a modular helmet as well. I have a nice older full face.. I really don't need it.. should probably post it on here for sale, cheap.

    Victory gloves ("medina" model, I think)

    FirstGear all weather textile jacket with armor, insulated liner, wind and waterproof. (I initially left the dealer with a Victory textile with limited lousy armor. It promptly unraveled inside the left sleeve, and was returned. Was almost able to trade even for an additional helmet and gloves with the savings on the return)

    Alpinestars boots

    I will have some nice protective pants- something more than just jeans- as soon as funds allow.

    A while back I was skiing in Colorado and some of my buddies from Denver came up to join us - as a gag they wore tinfoil hats only they knocked on the wrong condo door. After they embarrassed themselves (and these guys both have accomplished careers) - I asked them why they did that - they mumbled something about warding off aliens.

    Honestly, I wear a nice jacket and I feel thats plenty enough. A lot of it has t odo with no riding in dangerous groups and watching out for whats in front of you.

    I won't even pretend I wear all the equipment all the time or even the best equipment all the time because sometime I do go out feeling invinsable knowing that to some I'm invisible so when I do head out with less than the best I do feel guilty. Weird aye !
    I also know that whether you are riding with a group or solo, when things go bad it's always when you least expect it.
    Nepper's nickel.

    Bamboo undies and bamboo socks.
    Minimum of work boots, jeans, Victory t shirt, and leather vest.

    Maximum of leather bike boots, leather jeans, Schott Perfecto 'one star' Leather jacket , and if it's really cold I throw an Army greatcoat over the lot!
    Raining heavy I get the Driza-Bone oilskin overcoat out.
    Summer rain I cop it sweet in the top getup.
    Wind dries me out!

    Now let's see Susan in a full leather catsuit!
