How and where do you spend that green when it comes to safety?

We always recommend you wear adequate safety gear anytime you ride a motorcycle, but let’s face it, you’ve got lots of options when it comes to riding gear. We’d like to know where you feel like your money is best spent.

    The most expensive thing I have is

    Leather jacket. Has waterproof liner and has lasted 90,000 miles with no sign of giving up. Actual wearing time is hard to say if that matters. I don't wear it when it's hot.

    Harley FXRG had it for 9 years. Somewhere around $650 I think.

    Second is my leather overpants. Had them longer but probably worn about the same amount of time.
    Also FXRG As I recall it was $450. About 10 years. Replaced a couple of snaps on the legs. Mostly for cold and rain days.

    Boots, worn for 50,000 miles or so. Not worn out at all. Around $400 or so Sidi On Road. Absolutely water tight. Stand in water all day if you want.

    Helmet is Harley branded modular with the tinted visor. 2 years, $200

    Gloves nothing special. Basic hand protection, synthetic. Waterproof gauntlets for when it's cold and raining.

    Looking at new pants. Hard to decide.

    Just make sure it fits, and I mean fits right every where, all items. Nothing worse than having ill fitting gear IMO
