Okay first off I have to say it took me awhile to figure out what atgatt meant. But then it finally hit me. Anyway, while I agree with the sentiment right now I'm having a hard time finding some of it that fits into the current budget.
Take for instance, the Aerostitch Darien motorcycle jacket. I really wouldn't mind getting one in the Hi-Viz color scheme, but honestly I can't drop the $500 they are asking.
Is there anywhere that sells riding gear in the more modest price range?
