Riding Gear & Accessories
« on: April 16, 2009, 10:53:07 PM »
I have a couple of product reviews I wanted to post (boots, jacket, back protector, etc) and I was thinking... Would it be possible to create a section for gear and accessories? Every motorcycle forum I frequent has such a section.  It would be for posting reviews of products we own, asking advice about helmets, jackets, and other apparel, discussing riding accessories like GPS, hydration systems, bike covers, camping gear, helmet cameras, etc. All the 'extras' beyond the bike are lumped into one category. Having a separate section for this would make it a lot easier to find pertinent information (and encourage more discussion about gear) than wading through the miscellaneous campfire threads. So how 'bout it?

I think it would be a good idea.  I know for myself it has been a long process trying to find info on this forum so one section for gear and access..would be a nice add-on.

A very good idea Slider. When it comes to this topic there are so many unknowns. It surely has to do with the amount of merchandise to select from. I have been looking at helmet and goggle combination's for some time trying to find the right one that fit and work well to my specific needs. I think the addition of your proposed section to this forum would help in my quest.

It would be handy to have a section devoted to this, certainly! Doesn't really fit anywhere else, anyway...

The forum is perfect and needs no improvement. This area is like the elevator "Close Door" button, nothing pays attention to it ;)

I am sure they are busy getting us cool new bikes and accessories. It is really a pain moderating forums.

The truth.


An introduction section would be nice as well.
