New gear II

I am still driving myself nuts of getting me some new gear. I am leaning towards custom made, as I think the BMW suit might not necessarily fit perfectly and I have doubt on how warm/hot it will be to wear on warm summer days. Thinking a custom made perforated leather suit will do great, and with a windstopper and underlayer it will also work just fine on those days where it is a little colder. But you also needs to carry a rain suit around all the time. Choices, choices.

If only I could find a proper review of the BMW Atlantis suit that tells me more. Very few out there, and they don’t deal with hot weather. I guess it is too expensive for most (like me included).


I need new gear. My riding pants are torn, and my jacket is worn. I have two options that I like, either get a custom made suit from Damen Leathers, or go for the BMW Atlantis 4 suit. But they are both $$$. Right now, I think I am leaning towards the BMW suit because they are waterproof leathers. No more rain suit! On the other hand, it prove to be a little too much touring oriented to feel great when on my sporty bikes. I need to go fit and try it on.

Whatever I will get, I am sure it will be stretching my finances, especially after the very expensive clutch repair I had to do on my K1200S. Oh well. You only live once, and the only way to enjoy money is when you spend it. Happy
