Rukka makes superb riding gear for all kinds of riding. I still have Rukka raingear from 1981. They have a two piece suit, the AirPower2, perfect for the traveller with excellent ventilation and removeable waterproof GoreTex liner. I love mine! Here's a review by Motorcyclist of the Rukka Allroad jackets & pants. There's all sorts of new designs too, from the All-Road to the Air Vantage and more. Recommended

Learn it, Respect it, Live it, Love it, GEAR UP and ride!! Any rider will tell you the margin of error on a motorcycle is extremely narrow. They can be tremendously unforgiving, even in the hands of expert riders. The ability to combine the respect they demand and the speed that they beg for can result in one of the most exhilarating experiences of a rider's lifetime. One of the things we have going for us to help us appreciate a more worry-free ride is fantastically affordable, amazingly engineered, easily obtainable PROTECTIVE GEAR. Motorcycle Obsession is the best resource to find top quality helmets and leathers by the names you already know and trust at the best prices - and we can prove it.
