What would you have done differently if you could take back all the cash you shelled out?
Not buy cheap gear.

Tell us about your street riding gear setup.
Depend on the time of year and type of ride, I have a few set ups

Most of the time and always on get away trips (over nights or longer)
I wear my Areostich Transit suit, if you are not familiar with it, it's a 2 piece leather suit that is 100% water proof, with full armor (TF5)

For day ride and commuting to work on extremely hot days (85F+) I have a Macna 2 piece mesh suit. Full armor, CE)

For very cold days (45F-) I have an Olympia, Phantom 1 piece textile suit. It has a removable thermal liner, and in addition I can wear any combination of additional layers including some heated gear.
I sprayed the suit with a silicon waterproofing solution and it works well. Full armor, CE)

My helmets are all Bell RS1 with the transitions shield.

My boots are Alpinestars and I also have a pair of Piloti low profile boots, and when I am really in the mood a pair of red open toe pumps.

I have a few different pairs of gloves.

I am also ATGATT. Period

You can't have mountains without valleys.
