    I also have a set of no-name Pakistani leather winter gauntlets that I've had since about 1990 or so. I haven't found another pair just the right size and weight. My fingers are rather short in proportion to the length of my palms, so I'm a difficult fit.

    My Shoei. I fear the day she'll have to be replaced.

    That's like, your opinion, man.

    Indeed Mr Jim. Wish they still had the TZR shape in production. I'll most likely get some matt black shoei thing I'll paint how I want it to look. Flake Kerry. I'm going to flake everything.

    Mr Jim. Called you the other day. Give me a buzz when you're free.
    That's like, your opinion, man.

    Considering my T-Pro chest protector prevented me from being a shish kabob on a barbed wire fence post in 2010, I'd have to give it my vote. I still broke a few ribs, collar bone and shoulder blade from the blunt impact, but the chest protector kept the post from skewering me. My leathers actually had a cut in the shape of the post.
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.

    Being in a sub-tropical climate in Oz means you sweat a lot. MX gloves are the best things for street riding as they breath the best. Problem is I wear through a pair in less than 12 months (more like 6). So, I was surprised to find I'm still wearing these ones after about 3 years. They get chucked in the washer / dryer every month or so as well.

    I was a Motorcycle Courier in the UK from 1986-2002, so I'm not sure where to start.
    The best waterproofs were probably Rukka. I used many different makes over the years, but riding 300-800 miles in heavy rain it doesn't matter how good or how much money you have spent the rain finds it's way in somewhere. It wasn't the best feeling in the world having just dropped off in Manchester on a miserable Monday evening, being very cold, and very wet, and a 250 miles ride home to look forward to.
    Sidi Moto Cross boots were great in the summer, but useless in the winter.
    The best piece of kit (will sound very boring) was a knitted neck warmer.
