CONGRATS on the new ride! It looks pretty sharp, especially with the black front fender . . . just like mine!

Get some gear, yes . . . and you are going to take the MSF beginner's course . . . right?

Welcome aboard . . . .

Welcome Neal!

I also have a tourmaster jacket and upgraded the back protector with a forcefield sport lite (Type B Medium) which fits nicely in the jacket. Be advised this is CE Level 1 and not level 2) but considering what comes with the jacket it is for me a good tradeoff between protection and comfort.

I also have tourmaster pants and supplemented the hip armor with Firstgear Hiprotec comfort Armor (size large). A decent upgrade for $25 IMO.

Enjoy your bike and remember you can never get too much practice in an empty parking lot.

thanks man, I will look into that. the back armor seemed kind of weak sauce on mine. I actually went straight to a parking lot today after I geared up...forgot that sandy took out all the light poles! got to find a new spot!


any one have any other suggestions on taming the looks of the tri color? I already got rid of that Rudolf fender.
