    Question Motoport group buy?

    Are there people interested in creating a group buy for some top notch "made in USA" kevlar gear?

    I'm paying $4.40 a gallon for premium for the bike. Does that qualify me as "rich"...or "poor"?

    I have a full set of Gear from Wayne at motoport

    And I love it.

    It took a few miles to get used to, but after that they feel like second skin.

    I made a special trip to San Diego to get fitted and got some great gear off the shelf that they did a few enhancements to fit my stubby legs on the spot.

    The geat is NOT cheap but I believe that it is the best you can get and overall worth it.

    Oh and I have put on 10K miles since I got the gear in December (6 months ago).

    I also ride in FL where 90 is normal. I have only been out on a few 90 degree days since the heat of the summer is just starting, but so far so good.

    Also we went thru a few 25 degree nights on a cross country run and a gerbings liner kept me nice and toasty under the motoport gear

    I have the stretch Kevlar jacket and pants and a pair of Kevlar gloves for a year now (Quad Armor), would really like to get the mesh. Above 85 degrees the stretch is too hot (heck above 75 sitting in the sun it can be too hot). The gear is well made and if I had to put any gear to the ultimate test this would be my first pick. It fits well, however I would have liked to visit Wayne for a true custom tailored look.

    All:

    Supposedly, there is a group-buy w/ Motoport already in progress over at ST-Owners.com. 10% discount. Rather than waiting for this one to take off, might be a good thing to tag on to that one.

    Just sayin'.
