I bought my 2005 CBR600RR in mid 2011 with very low milage (<1000miles iirc). At the end of 2015, I changed it into a track bike a ready for 2016.

I find it difficult to buy off the peg - I'm tall and thin. Most gear choices were driven by my issue with finding stuff that fits.

Helmet & Leathers
  • AGV Pista GP Elements Limited
    • With the obligatory tinted visor, pinlock and tearoffs.
  • Scott Leathers
  • Dainese Rossi Replica Gloves
  • Dainese Axial Pro In Boots
    • Work in conjunction with Dainese suits and go under the leathers. I asked Scott Leathers to sew some velcro in my suit to make them work.
  • Knox Aeigis Back Protector
  • Knox Chest Protector
  • Proskins baselayer
  • eBay special ear plugs
  • Garmin Virb Elite camera
    • This is what allows for funky video overlays. It pokes through a hole in the nose.
