After a week of waiting my order finally arrived from RevZilla.com. After I've had a chance to try out my gear on the road I'll talk a little more about it and give some further impressions, but I'm psyched.
First, the helmet. I got a Scorpion Exo-T1200. Looks great, fits great. What I know so far, it's going
The ValiseThe spec sheet makes a big deal about the helmet bag shipping with the T1200. No pictures on the
The last goodie in the box was the jacket. Ok, so technically this isn't a pic of my actual jacket, but it is the same jacket. I picked up a Fieldsheer Adventure Tour jacket in the Hi-Vis colors. Matches the new helmet and keeps the wife happy. Again, more on this later once I get it out on the road, but I will say that it's quite surprising how much lighter textile is than leather. Much more complicated, too. My leather has 4 vents and lots of black leather. That's about the extent of the technology. The new jacket, on the other hand, has armor everywhere (my leather just has thicker leather in strategic locations), vents everywhere, two liners, straps on the arms and waist to adjust the fit, enough pockets that I'm sure to eventually misplace something in one of them for a good long time, zip off neck warmer (my leather does have a neck warmer attached to the liner), and lots of zippers. Luckily, I think it came with a manual. I'll need to read up to learn how this jacket works. Who woulda thought I'd need to study to figure out my jacket?
