Default Riding gear

Just curious as to where everyone buys riding gear. Suggested online stores as well as those to avoid.

I don't want to be a rolling Victory billboard unless they decide to pay me for it.

I like bang for the buck and don't give a hoot about brand names, so I first go to my Cycle Gear store. I like to buy from people I can look at and talk with at the same time and I also want to be able to try an item on before I plunk down my gelders. So I am not big on going on line or mail order, especially for clothing. I have ridden with others who bought the brand name gear only to find my CG items were the same stitch for stitch and cost half what the friends paid.
I consider myself fortunate to have a Cycle Gear store not too far from my house.
BTW, it would be nice if you would complete your profile and signature. If we knew what you ride and where you live, that will help us to help you.

Revzilla
http://www.compacc.com/p/sliders-que...rproof-jackets
Motorcycle superstore
Leatherup

Just a few I have dealt with. My personal is Revzilla and Competition Acc are my favorites, but all of them have a good reputation.

YMMV

I do in fact have a cycle gear close by. Some of the gear is great but I have not been impressed with the quality of the leather.

I live on Memphis TN and ride a 2012 vegas eight ball.

This. CycleGear is great for your basic riding gear. Priced right too.

Leatherup.com for lower priced but decent riding jackets, vests, gloves, etc. Jafrum is another one like it.

Fox Creek for the good stuff but there are better quality leathers if you want to spend a small fortune. Fox Creek has an excellent rep though.
