What kind of gear do you ride with, or want to ride with?
Thought I'd start a thread discussing everyone's riding gear. What do you currently wear while riding? What would you like to wear while riding?
I am looking into getting a pair of riding jeans. Its been hard to find a pair that I really like though. I want something well fitted with motorcycle knee pads on them. Nothing overly stylized either.
Not sure about the riding jeans, but I generally wear all leather when riding. It becomes an issue at the height of the summer but being in Canada most of the time it is nice to be warm in leathers. Currently looking to buy a new helmet though. No leads as of yet. I just find my current one is starting to look old.

This is a great picture to show the need for proper riding gear.
Looks like most people are going for full leather mostly. I can't get over those red camo riding pants. They look like fun but I'm not sure I would want to ride with them everyday. They certainly make a statement.
I can't convince myself to buy riding gear for the summer months. And by that I mean something made of more lightweight fabrics. I just always think about the coming Fall and winter and can't bring myself to spend the money. Are there any cheaper jackets or pants that are good for summer riding?
