No, but there are other non branded but proper gear makers around.When I first got my gear, i just got anything
I wore home depot contractors gloves
I wore motorcross body armor underneath a hoodie
then i saw videos of people with road rash and injuries because of not having proper gear.
I still can't justify paying full price for Dainese / Astars and the $800 to $2500+ stuff.
I've shifted my bike into neutral with flip flops to move it around the driveway, and I honestly have no idea how anyone could ride like that. Even a short ride would chafe my toe to the boneNot a fan of the hemet mohawks, but i still don't understand why anyone would ride in flip flops. How is it even comfortable shifting let alone the damage caused in a crash.
Hi Thunderous,I don't mind them at all but I think some dislike them when riders are attempting to look like Police. Anything that makes people just be more aware is a good thing.
