Bike Gear Help

Post  Mauser on Sun Aug 12, 2012 7:55 am

Hi guys,

Well, if that's the case you're going to love BMW clothing! Yeah, a bit dear but also sterling quality, and it actually looks not too bad either. Their flip-face helmet is superb too, and with all that rain you guys "enjoy" this will not go amiss I think. Besides, it is almost ....

Klim do about the best ventilated gear that I could find. I have a pair of their trousers and their F4 helmet which is awesome for here in Africa.

I have a jacket which is also well ventilated but from a different manufacture that I cant remember the name of and my jackets at work right now - will try to remember to get the name tomorrow.

Regards,
