I have the same boots and gloves. Agreed, the boots are very comfortable and do the job perfectly. I find the gloves with their gauntlet design take a bit longer to put on vs. a shorter glove -- so may look at options.
Will look into the GP Pro jacket in the next couple of weeks. I see A* have just released their new high spec Atem jacket but it looks fairly pricey in comparison.
Yeah the gauntlet style does take a little longer to put on, but they stay put. I like those gloves because the are a nice balance: no too heavy duty, but have the knuckle protection which isn't too obtrusive. I like the jacket a lot.
In fact the only buyers remorse I have is the pants: not the pants themselves, but the colour choice: the inside leg is white. Sounds fine, but the white coating seems to be wearing off/rubbing on the matt black panel on the CBR: leaving whitish marks. Pisses me right off LOL, as it's hard to clean off/remove. My mate has the full black A* Track pants and nada. Ba$tard
. At least I know I'm gripping the bike with my legs/knees!
I call the above my Zombie Apocalypse outfit: barely 10cm2 of flesh showing (between helmet and neck). All I'd need is a baseball bat and I'd be golden. Rule#1: Cardio LOL.
Eleven hours in a tin can?
God, there's got to be another way!
