Ha, I love them all.

On my Beta I have Leatt GPX 5.5 enduro pants and jacket, Fox Instinct enduro boots, Fox gloves and an LS2 Subverter MXhelmet. I wear Leatt knee armour and Shot body armour.

On my Moto Guzzi, I have some bike jeans with basic armour, a Weise leather jacket, and normally wear work boots. If I am not motovlogging I have a Davida 8-Ball openface helmet.

On my Triumph, I wear Dainese 2 piece leathers, Daytona boots, currently a Shoei NXR helmet.

I have some Fox MX gloves, Held wet/winter gloves and RST shorty summer gloves.
I have Rukka wet/winter road riding textiles, Forcefield back-protector and several other helmet for if I fancy a change.

That is my main kit, I wear other stuff to mix it up a bit, sometimes just squid it.

I used to use one piece leathers, but they are a pain in the bum, but my go to brand was Arlen Ness as they make some lovely suits. I did get a suit custom made, through a mate but that was not a pleasant experience so, less said the better about them.

That's dope! I will need to check out Arlen Ness. I need a 1 piece still

Usually just T-shirt, jeans, shoes, full face, gloves. It's so hot & humid. Call me a squid or whatever, I don't mind nor care though.. :)
You're not the only squid here.

Cowboy boots, jeans, t-shirt, and a full face helmet. If it's raining I'll throw on my armored textile jacket and frogg togg pants. If it's one of the few cold days here I'll wear leather gloves, a balaclava, and my jacket.

Hey man to each their own. Your body your choices. I'm not here to tell anyone how to live their lives. I'm tempted all the time to ride with less gear... it's hot and heavy (jacket with airbag vest weighs like 35 pounds or something stupid) and takes forever to put on and take off. I promised my fiancee I would always wear all of it though and I try and push my limits and get better when I ride so.. probably a good thing for me.

I was looking into some armored jeans and maybe some hugh ankle armored shoes that look more natural so I can go for shorter rides. Anyone have experience with armored spandex style leggings to go under jeans?

I've been having a hard time finding a new set of riding jeans that aren't in the skinny jean style. I guess everyone is a twat now-a-days. As a fat guy, I can't get into those to save my life.
Anywho, I wear a 36 and order a 38 to compensate for the armor. I found the jeans from Milwaukee leather performance fit well, but the knee armor is for shorter folks. They're available on Amazon and from leatherup.com at $79.99

Another pair that fits well is the fieldsheer charger jeans. They're true to size and a regular fit. They don't come with armor but when you out some in, it falls in the perfect spot. Like all bike pants, they're warm but being a little loose, they allow air in. Fieldsheer lao has 50% off sales quite frequently so a pair of aramid jeans for $40 plus $20 for CE-2 armor isn't a bad buy.

Does your gear support the Dianese air bag vest? If not in the future and your budget allows considering getting some and the air bag vest. I have the alpine stars one and although I have never needed it to deploy I like the safety net it provides. Kind of like a gun or a condom, would you rather need it and not have it, or have it and not need it?

Also thanks, that picture was taken by a guy named victory John in Mulholland, he takes photos of cars and bikes that ride by and sells them online on his website. You can view them for free with his watermark or support him by buying whichever ones you like. Definitely worth it, his photos are ace
