Gear?

Where does everyone get their gear? Local dealership, Internets, or out of town shop? Good deals and service where you shop?

I end up going to a motorcycle shop. you'll find out you want to try on a helmet or gear before you buy.

Agreed. Only issue I have is most local dealerships and shops are fairly small and don't have much in stock. There is a pretty large store about 50 miles away from me. I have seen a few online shops that have lenient return and exchange policies with helmets and most offer free shipping.

I went to the large shop to try on helmets.

Now shopping for a good deal on a Bell RS-1.

You also have more motorcycle friendly weather

The store we have is Iron Pony. Good selection and decent prices, just not convenient for me.
