Best places to get gear in Berlin

Hey all,

I am in Berlin at the moment and I'm looking to get just the usual gear (helmet, jacket, gloves, boots). I was wondering if anyone had first hand experience with places that they like - just in terms of range and price and ideally if they would speak English. I am hoping that there might be some motorcycle district with tons of stores that I have yet to find.

Thanks,
Kurt

The usual suspects: look for Hein Gericke, Polo and Louis...they're just about everywhere...and each have at least 3-4 shops in and around Berlin...

The Hein Gericke store here is almost just across the road from a large Polo store, and Louis isn't far away...not exactly a whole district but usually these shops are all close to each other.

I had no problem communicating in my pitiful German, and found people to be extremely friendly just about everywhere in Berlin, I can't imagine that there won't be someone around who speaks English.
