Riding apparel is another expensive part of motorbike riding and should be treated as serious as your motorbike choice. It could be the difference between you riding for an hour or riding for 10 hours, it could also be the difference between you hoping back on after a crash or ending up in hospital.
Price is also another major factor. If you buy the best of the best you will defiantly have gear that is comfortable and last a long time, but is it worth the fact that the extra money spent could have been used on an occasional hotel room rather than sleeping on the side of the road!
