Gear For Sale / Dainese Leather Jacket Size 50EU $40
« on: 03/02/20 03:47PM »
Dainese light leather jacket. This jacket is more of a light weight leather jacket with minimal protection than a sport riding jacket. There is elbow and shoulder armor (flexible) and has a back protector pocket. There is a small hole and scratches on the underside of the right arm due to an accident my friend had while wearing it.

I have a pair of Bohn Armor Adventure pants in size medium. These are designed to be worn under street jeans or moto jeans and provide quite a bit of armor. knees, thighs, hips and coxyx. I use to wear these prior to acquiring over pants, essentially the opposite of what these are. For the most part, these are unnoticeable and are fairly comfortable except in the hottest of weather. Great in winter under good moto jeans, as the added layer provides an extra bit of warmth.

Gear For Sale / TCX X-Sqaure WP Boots Size 41 $25
« on: 03/02/20 02:27PM »
I have for sale a pair of TCX X-Square WP boots. These are low cut boots that look more like a driving shoe than a typical motorcycle boot. I've had these for a while but they are still in decent shape, although the tips of the underside of the boot are showing a little wear through, they still feel solid and are pretty comfortable when walking around off bike. As for their "WP" (Waterproof) capabilities, I can say that they held up a few times I wore them in the rain but it's been a while since they've see any rain/wet weather. Possibly a reconditioning with some Nikwax might be worth doing.

I typically wore these when riding to job sites, as they are rather "stealthy" and didn't make it look like I was heading to the moon or getting ready for combat. As for fitment, TCX seem to run true to size and for me, they fit spot on! Size 41 EU is the equivalent to size 8 US and so far all of my TCX boots seem to fit perfectly.
I can say that boots of these type are more for looks than protection, I do feel that these boots have good protection in the areas that they are intended to cover. I had no reservation wearing them any time I rode and was not doing any real "spirited" riding. i.e. When commuting. One small gripe about these is the Velcro strap that covers the laces. The strap seems a bit short to me and sometimes getting it secured was a bit of a nuisance. Other than that these boots were my go to boots for a while. I ended up repairing another set of TXC boots (Jupiter 2) which are Gore-Tex and went back to wearing those instead.

The soles are a little worn and there is a small bit of wear on the tips of both boots (see photo)

The original price for these boots was from $99-$129 depending when you bought them. I'm asking $25

Gear For Sale / Dainese D-Dry Jacket Size 52 EU
« on: 03/02/20 02:19PM »
I have a size 52 Dainese D-Dry Jacket, I believe it is the Avro model but not 100% sure. It is a few years old but is still in good condition. The only issue I have had with it is the main zipper pull broke. The zipper is fine otherwise and I improvised and used a safety wire safety pin to replace the broken/missing pull.

The jacket is water proof, it's been a while since I wore it in the rain but when I did, it kept me dry. I did do a Nikwax treatment a few months ago but have not ridden in the rain yet. I bought a replacement jacket so I no longer need this one so it's up for sale.

I'm asking $60 for it and it even has a removable quilted liner and is very warm with it installed and is comfortable without it up to 75*F with the shoulder and back vents open. (At least for me it is)

The jacket has a few outer pockets and a rear pocket for a back protector, but only the internal pocket of the quilted liner would be waterproof. There is shoulder and elbow/arm armor, I believe it's CE Level 1.

Gear For Sale / Rev'it Summit2 H20 Large $40
« on: 03/02/20 02:08PM »
I have a pair of Rev'it Summt2 H2O gloves for sale. I've had them for about 1.5 years and they are in great shape. I recently purchased a set of replacement gloves so these are up for sale.

I'm asking $40 for them and can say the last time I used them they did get a little water logged but it was coming down pretty hard and it was a 2 hour ride to San Diego that day. I did a Nikwax treatment on them a few months ago just to refresh their water shedding abilities but have not ridden in the rain with them since that was done.

For the most part they are a good glove but they are not a true winter glove but do work fine for So Cal "winters", at least they have been for me.

Can send Pics if desired.

Here's a link to a review done by Revzilla.

I have a pair of Dainese X-Travel Gore-Tex gloves for sale. I bought these with the intention of using them with some heated glove liners, so they are one size larger than I would normally wear. I recently found a set of heated gloves that essentially ticked all the boxes of what I want in a heated glove so I'm selling these. I'm asking $125.00 Original price was closer to $249 but I bought them earlier this year on close out for $149.

I have only wore them a couple of times on the bike just to see how they would work and other than being a little more bulky with the heated liners in, they actually felt really good. They also worked well without the liners but they were slightly loose due to being one size up. Had they been my exact size, I'd definitely keep them. These are essentially brand new gloves, hence my asking price.

Two features that stood out for me are the touch tech finger tips, which allows you to use a touch screen/smart phone without having to remove the gloves. The other is the dual cuff system. Where an inner cuff goes under the jacket sleeve and the outer cuff goes on top of the jacket sleeve. If you ever ridden in the rain, you know how important having the glove under the jacket sleeve can be for keeping your hands dry.

NOTE: Can provide pics if desired.

Here is a video review from Revzilla for more info.

Not your usual road hazard I passed about 8 of these before snow covered the road.

I donít believe I knew or met him but RIP Pete

Jacket has been sold. The back protector is still up for grabs...

Since the weather is coming back to what this jacket is more suited for and the fact that the jacket hasn't sold, I'm giving this thread another bump!

Pants, Jackets, Suits / Waterproofing
« on: 03/21/19 05:59PM »
So found this video on the web and it's pretty informative. Not all waterproofing is the same, we know this and this video helps explains the why and how.

Yeah, a couple of us on a ride to Borrego Springs ran into him at the Elsinore side of Ortega Highway in the parking lot just at the end of Ortega. This was just before he opened up the store front in Corona or maybe right at the same time I think. At that time, he had a surplus of Scorpion gear if I recall correctly but he was telling us their intentions and looks like his venture has taken a foot hold. Good to know that they do consignment and credit for stuff you want to sell.

Bummer Dude! Here's to a fast recovery.

Shoei is typically my go to helmet, their fit and finish has always been great. Although I have tried on a few AGV helmets, I've never owned one, their price has usually been the biggest deterrent, at least in their top of the line race helmets go. For the money and quality, I'd go with the Shoei.

Those of us whoíve been riding for several decades I believe knew this way back when...

Iíve had good results too. Bought a few things from them when I rebuilt my 01 VFR.

what is this riding "season" nonsense? we live in so cal and can ride year round!

To a point. It's getting close to freezing overnight here and not hitting 50F until 10-11AM. There was a ride I wanted to go on today but the guys were adamant about leaving at 8:30AM.. like dude its 40F at 8:30, no way!

If you have appropriate gear, it's doable. If you don't, it's cold.
Went on that ride and it was actually below freezing (30F) coming through Ortega! Although I do have electric gear, I wasnít wearing it today but had no issues with the layers I was wearing. Even my gloves, with some liners and nitrile over gloves under them worked fine. Everyone has their threshold so a riding season is relative.

She looks show room new! Nice work Todd.


It's quite the adventure, and it we haven't even bled them yet ;)

The linked brakes are very nice. I can understand some track guys not liking them but for the street it's a really solid system. I'm a bit disappointed my 2014 doesn't have it but I get it, it's an expense.
I actually used both 5 & 6 Gen VFRs at the track and don't even notice the linked brakes. Am I a professional level rider, no but I am familiar with sport riding braking techniques and I can say they don't appear to be an issue for me. Would my lap times change if I didn't have linked brakes? Who knows, all I know is that they work well for how ride.
