No, Helmet isn't illegal. I even asked a local police officer ;)

As far as pants/boots..
I wear regular jeans and Ariat over the ankle leather boots.

I ordered some kevlar jeans and LOVE them. If you ever decide on riding pants,I highly recommend them. They are very comfy and look like jeans. The fibers in regular jeans can actually get embedded in your skin in a crash and cause severe infection.

I love the LED in the back. A good way to get attention to the other drivers to notice you passing or if a distracted driver is aprotching with the flashing it will get there attention. How much was it?

^ wow I found the gmax with the name gm68. Man should've got this one with the LED. Man with what I paid for mine I could've got like 5 of each color lol. Oh we'll. I might order one later on, I do like the idea of the light flashing at a higher level from the bottom rear tail light.



I just google and found this for anyone that wants to add lights on their helmets. http://www.galermic.com/En/ProductView.asp?ID=185

The boots are great, but honestly, jeans are worthless in a crash. I've seen too many people loose too much skin, sorry. You should really consider getting some riding pants. :D

I work in the emergency room a lot, trust me even riding pants can result in losing skin. Not defending my jeans, just saying. Realize I just got my bike in November, i'm sure ill end up with some pants eventually but for now it's still better than being a squid who rides around with no gear ;)

Kevlar reinforced Denim definitely helps, but only way you're gonna truly be saving your skin is with leather pants, which not too many people are fond of.

I know your boots are over the ankle, but are they motorcycle boots? They'd have reinforced ankle support.

Never saw a helmet like that, definitely will help keep you noticed

Not motorcycle boots, just leather boots.
One step at a time for me, i'm not made of money.

I've been eyeing these jeans: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-d1-kevlar-armor-ready-jeans


The previous D1s have padded knee protection, but nothing substantial. These new ones can have real knee protection for the maximum safety you could get from a jean. Unlike other jeans that are simply a heaver denim with a kevlar patch sewn into the high abrasion areas, these have kevlar woven throughout the fabric + the patches. I also like the length. I'm skinny and tall and always have problems finding jeans that fit me.

With the styling, and woven kevlar, they are really pricey, but I'm probably gonna save up for a pair with the added armor.

I've been looking at these since they came out. I'm skinny as well and like my jeans a little fitted (typically wear Levi's 511's). These look really nice and clean, and come with knee armor too. I've heard nothing but good things about draggin jeans as well.
I just don't think I'd ever be able to convince myself to buy them for $315 USD :eek:
That's getting close to some track pants available.

I was reading reviews on those dainese jeans. Someone mentioned that they got the Draggin Jeans, and felt the Dainese ones fit better, more slim. Described the Draggin Jeans as "Mom's jeans"....

In fact a few larger people, like 230+ pounds complained that the Dainese jeans were a bit tight around the thighs, but I'm little so I think it's made more for my body type. I already have riding pants, but these would be more for casual rides where I don't want to stand out too much once I get to my destination (hate having to change out of regular pants!).

I could definitely see the "Mom jean" reference about draggin jeans normal cut typically from the US branch, but I do beleive there is a major difference between the products offered from the AUS dragginjeans.net and the US one dragginjeans.com
