This is what happens when you have just ONE too many items of motorcycle gear.

I'm not far behind. I think the real problem is that we don't want to throw away the old stuff even after it's worn out because we know how much we paid for it (a lot!).

It must be the heat from the Guzzi engine causing my gear to “shrink” as well. Air cooled and all...

Just replaced my fifteen year old (!) Alpinestars, but cannot bring myself to pitch them in the trash . . . need a new helmet  . . . what to do with all these old helmets . . . I visualize a Grand Hillside Helmet Roll  . . .

I just gave away an old helmet, gloves, boots, and set of leathers to the fine young man who bought my BMW K75s. I've given other gear to other new riders, but I still have some stuff I don't wear much.

 

I got some new summer gloves this week. So nice and comfy... and the velcro works. Then we need dirt gear and street gear......

I've given away several jackets over the years.  Gloves get worn out.  Helmets, I dumpster when they've passed their "use by" date. My good "old gear" lives in SoCal in semi retirement. Austin is impressed with the almost new jacket I gave him. He's never had a real one..

The trouble is you need so many types of clothing.

 

The denim cut-off and original jeans, no gloves or helmet when running with your self styled hard dude mates.

 

Worn Barbour jacket, old work trousers, open face helmet and rubber boots when riding off road, or green laning as we Brits call it.

 

Full hi-tech leathers, carbon fibre helmet and kangaroo skin gloves for those thrashes with the fast jap bike set.

 

Comfy waterproof jacket, plastic trousers, old full face helmet to go to work.

 

Oversuit to cover your good clothes if going into town and need to look smart.

 

For years I always rode in a wax cotton jacket, blue jeans and rigger boots. Finally managed to buy a leather Rocker jacket with plenty of zips and studs, and of course my wallet held by achain to my belt. Then I got richer and started buying modern kit that does not seem to last any time.

 

 

How do I now about the list of kit, because I still have it all of it.
