  1. Motorcycle pants

    New Member Introductions
    I'm in the market to purchase motorcycle pants and I'm debating between denim with kevlar or denim with knee protection. I'm a new rider so I won't be doing anything crazy enough to necessitate serious protection but the fact that I'm new might be enough reason to invest in quality gear all...

    First Bike / New Rider

    First Bike / New Rider
    Hello, Does anyone have any experience/knowledge about t-pro forcefield vs. knox back AND chest protective armor? Knox costs more, and I can only buy it online (so I can't see it until after I buy it), but is it worth the money? Which one of the two provides better protection? Thanks, Newbieking
