The biggest thing I would say is go somewhere and try stuff on- even if you don’t buy you’ll be better able to get the right size from the internet- the sizes seemed to run odd for me, at least what I tried on. I ended up with Joe Rocket jacket, pants (I manage the 34″ inseam with the height of my boots, although it’s not that much difference for me) and gloves. They’re the mesh/textile combination that works quite well out here in AZ. The liner keeps me from freezing to death in the morning and the mesh from melting in the afternoon. Everything ran me just over 600 bucks, but then I also ended up with a Shoei helmet because nothing else they had fit- so that’s 300 of it. But everything’s really comfy for the most part and has armor in all the appropriate places. I would say- when you;re trying on gloves, actually grab a handlebar at some point becasue mine have this annoying tendancy to bunch right at the base of my fingers- not a huge thing, but it can get to you. I have old combat boots that I wear- being ex-Army I had them lying around and didn’t want to spend more money until I was really sure about this whole thing and they work great- comfy, fairly light and they have good grip. You can usally pick some up at surplus stores for like 20-30 bucks.
