I want to get some new gear, specifically what do you recommend for boots and pants. I don't have any special gear for my pants, I always just wore my dickies. And for boots, I have some uncomforatable pieces i got from payless or something. I want something to use for everyday riding, I don't plan on going to track days so I don't want anything crazy, just something I can ride in, and go to work or wherever comfortably for the day. Also, whats the verdict with textile jackets? Some people tell me they are safer than leather, others, and I believe I read, that nothing beats leather. Textile is a lot nicer to wear on hot summer days, and I'd like a new jacket eventually, but if textile doesn't hold up in a crash, I'd rather go with something leather and vented.
