hi..imho there is no substitute for leather when it comes to jackets, Quasi does really nice ones in Hamilton and just south of Auck at pukekawa is lifestyle imports who do good gear at good prices. You may find you get what you pay for and if you hit the road at any stage you'll be wishing you paid more........

as for helmets, don't buy on price, just make sure you get one that fits really well.....very important both for safety and comfort.

3-4 means horrible, horrible traffic. ask chrislost about that jacket he works at that shop.

if you are just looking and not actually buying anything, i'd rather pillion you around for the sake of petrol and time. dad's got a spare helmet/jacket even if the jacket is way too big for you

got a 30% design project to do this weekend

Enough though he's a westie, Andrew is quite a responsible rider.

I've never been on his back seat, but I can vouch that it will be quite a sweet experience, since you're just about the right size of his g/f. :msn-wink:

Yugi, I might have a textile jacket that might fit you, but I am guessing you're probably better off buying fresh gear. It's pretty pong.

gah all this small talk lol, just come in and have a look my friend, you will be surprised once you see the range available that the crap unknown jackets that has been advertised on trademe don't come close mate! Oh and joe rocket now has an importer how cool is that! I'll be there eleven till five thirty banzai. Go look around at other shops but do drop by, the outlets has some bloody great stuff here. Should be able to kit you out for a good price, ask shingo. haha

hehehe, last time i took a pillion on an SMC ride she had a choice between me and stevo. i was obviously the bad choice (less experience, worse seat etc), but i won her over eventually - and guess who crashed right after passing us?

"if i had her on the back she would've held the rear down":lol:



So tomorrow at 1pm where? Who's coming? How do we go there?

which motomail? find out where it is and we can take the car - i'd expect you'll find what you want there. i've got some shopping to be doing so may take a detour via some computer stores. 027454213
