Do you have one go-to site...

...for your kit? I'm talking lids to boots. Leathers to textile touring gear. I'm looking at Ghostbikes or something but that was a big ad in a mag, I'm looking for that little gem that you have tucked away ...

find your local stores

most of the kit you need to check the proper fit and overall comfort before buy, for me online shopping is not working, I found nice small store near me and they have a online site too, the point is sometimes you can find really nice kit in small local stores, this one keeps Furygan range:

Sizing

Yeh I understand about sizing issues with boots and all that, was going to go to an outlet for sizing and then go check that product online. Horrible business ethic towards hardworking retailers and independent outlets I know, but £££ is tight enough :'(

On-line.

Thing is, what happens when you've driven street retailers out of business by using them only to assess product quality and fit, then bought cheaper on-line? You'll be buying based only upon the web description and hoping the retailer will accept returns, possibly at your expense, until you find the product that suits you. Not good.

i accept the above view

But i use a company called RPM or LMSPARES which is a web based company but have opened a store near to me. so without the web my nearest seller of motorcycle gear is 50 miles away! so it does work both ways!

Street Dealers vs Online

Didn't realise you could buy gear online? WTF! I've been risking my neck buying off dodgy geezers with pitbulls when I could do it from the comfort of my armchair...?

Although seriously

If you must shop online it's probably best to use one that has high street stores too. Hein Gericke probably have the most stores but I use GetGeared and never had much problems with them and received great customer service when I did. They only have two stores and the nearest one to me is an hours ride away but that gives me a good reason for a rideout.


Having said that most of the stuff I get is bought through them online simply cus' I'm mostly too busy to find time when I need something.

But defo use these guys, they always help me.
