Is this still being read? I had to buy a new "passenger" helmet for a ride the other day. I have a Fulmer DOT-only modular helmet in black, size large. It has some "rash" from where I carried it in a bicycle basket at work and it bounced around. It doesn't even look deep, but if you worry about things like this, pass on this helmet. I can promise that it hasn't been dropped, but you have to trust me on it. I live in Orange, but I'm willing to ship it with paid shipping. I might can post a picture tomorrow.

Interested in donating one of those L helmets to a different, new rider? I have a friend who is looking for a large, full face helmet. He's taking the MSF this weekend, going for license next week.

so, i bought my little ninjette about a month ago, not realizing that they were going to rape me on the cost of msf (250 bucks i think?)
anyways, i received a lid with the bike, except its a large, and i wear a small/medium. im more than willing to trade helmets or whatever. that, and, i need a jacket too. jacket would be either small or medium also. im willing to trade random stuff that i have lying around the house.

Really? The fee is set by the state at $180 and discounts are available for families/groups. I realize the $180 can be a bit steep for folks, but I don't see how they got away with $250...

i lied. sort of. its 220 dollars, at Cowboy Harley in Beaumont, TX. cool kids that they are decided to stretch it out to a 5 day course. still, thats a lot more than I have right now, and me starting college this semester isnt helping the situation at all. so anything i could get...gloves, jacket, lid, pat on the back, etc etc would be incredibly awesome. :rider:

Have you actually taken the MSF yet? If not, go to How To Ride Motorcycle Training in Groves. http://www.howtoride.net/ I went there a couple of years ago, it had a different name. It's definitely cheaper than $220. Great guys teach it as well.

Hello all. I just put a down payment on an SV650S and I am going to pick it up Wednesday to take it to my mechanic. If he gives it a thumbs up, I am going to have a bike, but I don't have any gear. My friend is letting me borrow his helmet until I can get one though.

I went to a local store Cycle Gear and stuff seems very expensive, I do have some money to spend on gear if you want some money for it. Here are my sizes:
I am 6'1 190
Arai Helmet size L
Shoei helmet size L
Glove size L - Thanks to Deviate for the gloves
I am located in Garland, TX. Very close to Dallas and I am willing to drive up to 50-75 miles.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Edit: I picked up a jacket recently and I am using my friends gloves and helmet untill I get money for ones of my own.


Oh ya, here is a picture of the bike :D I'm really excited!!!

I'm looking for a pair of cheap (free works too) motorcycle boots. I wear a 13 US. I'm trying to stay away from work-style boots since the toes are way too thick for the Aprilia.

Anyone have some lying around collecting dust? Or at least links where I can get some really cheap?

I've been wearing some Nike high-top wrestling shoes lately. Great for feel, but they only offer slightly more protection than a thick pair of socks.

Many thanks.

Question -- was that the MSF course, or Rider's Edge? There is a difference, although Rider's Edge is certified by MSF, I believe.

This IS perhaps the GREATEST service on this forum.. I was recently able to outfit my 18 year old grandson for his first bike... It's a keeper too... an 86 NightHawk S that looks almost like new, runs like it too... Thanx to all who donate...
BTW... the Computer memory chips I put up on Paying it Forward have all been shipped... JR

Edit: All gear is spoken for. Thanks.

Santa brought me some new gear goodies from Olympia, so these are up for graps:

Tourmaster Cortech GX Air Jacket XL
http://www.4dsms.com/eshopprod_cat_...AND+jacket.CORTECH_GX_AIR_JACKET_WITH_LEA.htm

Cortech Pants size 36
Stay tuned for more info/images

I also have a pair of gloves size XL, but they are more a size L in fit.
Stay tuned for more info/images

All in great shape and clean, a few nicks from a get-off in Utah sand/rock, but no rips/tears/holes and all impact material in excellent shape.

pm if interested. To the one that will end up with these, the only request is to donate towards the server fund. Thanks, have a good day :sun:

I don't know how I missed this when I started riding again back in June. So I did it all on my own. Bummer! Story of my life . . .
I did not know about this either when i started. Certainly a great service and a great way to encourage people to ride ATGATT. So now I get to do my small part, and i am glad to do it. :sun:

This is a new Olympia Motor Sports ladies armored jacket

My daughter's ex boyfriend gave it to her, then she dumped him. Good move!!

It's XS, aka extra small, so really for that young daughter of yours you want to take riding.

My wife, who is rather petite, tried it on and it was too small for her.

But it's perfect for a kid.

And.....Free

PM me

I will take everybody interested and drop the names in a hat through this weekend, and pull the lucky winner's name out Sunday night.

Therefore you don't have to kill yourself replying to this post.

Glad we still have the jacket and not the dingbat boyfriend. Lol!!!

EDIT: As of this edit we have 3 names in the hat. Drawing for this free jacket is Sunday night.

Don't forget - PM me to get in the hat.

And FREE SHIPPING 'cause I'm in a fabulous mood
