    Well, it might seem a bit expensive to get your full set of leathers, but that kind of cash is nothing compared to being a paraplegic (a close friend, hit by another car not his fault, fell backwards w/o the appropriate supports & broke the wrong bones w/ the wrong nerves attached to them)

    a fully agree with this. dont skip out on gear, it is well worth the money and will save your skin, literally. ALWAYS WEAR YOUR GEAR, "id rather sweat than bleed"
    take it slow dont push to hard, learn and be carefull
    have fun and always be safe my friend, welcome to the 2-wheel community

    well, my parents just found out. my dad was really mad and my mom wasnt that mad. (which is weird, ususally my mom get more mad) but after about 30 mins, my dad is a little calmed down and keeps telling me that its dangerous and he had friends that died from motorcycle accidents. he also told me NO FREEWAY. which i wont till i feel a whole lot more comfortable riding. (maybe a few months) right now, i still have to THINK when i shift and brake.

    yeah gear is expensive i just threw down like 1200 bucks for a full suit that taliored and stuff, but it is really worth it. it doesnt matter if its far or not one of my accidents was only like a mile away from my house, i just went down to the store to get something and some lady just pulled out in front of me. i will take a look and see if i have an extra jacket, i may, i know i let my buddy use my old leather jacket and he isnt riding anymore, as he went down, he wasnt wearing a jacket and got a bunch of road rash, so ill probably get it back and see if it fits you man.

    and the freeway thing is scary at first, but i feel more comfortable on the freeway, its faster but at least everyone is going the same direction. on the street you have people pulling out, turning left, etc etc.
