I got my gear from all over. I would definitely get your helmet at the local shop just to ensure a good fit, same with the jacket. And the added bonus of supporting small local business is a good thing. My pants and boots came from http://www.sandhillspowersports.com(not so great, I will not be ordering from them again, but they do have the best prices just not so good service) my knee armor, all my wife’s gear, assorted gloves, and some other stuff from newenough.com (They are the best!) So I guess I try to spread the love around a bit .
