Popular Post Hunka Hunka Burning Love Posted July 3, 2016 Popular Post Share Posted July 3, 2016 (edited) With all the accidents related to EUC riding, I thought it would be a good idea to start a post about protective gear. I recently bought a motorcycle jacket which has elbow, shoulder, and back pads that can be inserted inside. Wearing it I feel a lot more confident and protected plus it just looks cool. I got one for summer use so it is made of mesh and allows air to flow through keeping you pretty cool. Here's a couple of suggestions - there are plenty on AliEx if you search for "motorcycle jacket." If you are in the US or Canada, be sure to go through Ebates (.com or .ca) to get some cashback. Keep in mind that a medium in China is like small in North America. I'm a medium usually for jackets, and I ordered a large as I'm a medium build. My jacket just fits exactly right. Some listings have measurement sizes or a sizing table so be sure to check those. If you have a large belly, have a long upper body or are heavy set you have to be very careful shopping for these online as the fit might not be right. The jackets tend to be slightly shorter in length I find. Please note I haven't checked out these sellers so you have to do some due diligence and confirm feedback scores yourself. Also make sure they come with a set of 5 padding inserts! http://www.aliexpress.com/item/FREE-SHIPPING-Dunham-summer-ride-motorcycle-clothing-motorcycle-jackets-automobile-race-jackets-racing-jackets/32413297176.html http://www.aliexpress.com/item/FREE-shipping-2015-spring-and-summer-off-road-motorcycle-ride-jackets-breathable-mesh-automobile-racing-jackets/32315011136.html Take note PU is not leather. I think it's polyurethane so it's the fake stuff. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-shipping-BM-1-Men-PU-jacket-professional-racing-jacket-motorcycle-jacket-motorcycle-delivery-5-sets/32671396914.html Motorcyle Gloves (don't know which have wrist protection): <removed dead link> Knee Pads (could be worn under pants maybe): http://www.aliexpress.com/item/BC311-New-Arrival-Motorcycle-Motorcross-Racing-MTB-Cycling-Sports-Knee-Protective-Gears-Kneepads-Knee-Pads-Guard/32248533372.html Helmets: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2015-new-arrival-Brand-THH-TX-27-motocross-helmet-double-lens-off-road-motorcycle-helmet-Men/32313667621.html http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Dot-casco-moto-epoca-per-harley-aperti-del-fronte-retro-caschi-moto-motociclo-restore-ancient-ways/32663434213.html Feel free to add other recommendations and suggestions.
