Hey everyone,
Just got my first bike and I couldn't be happier with how everything worked out! CMSP/MotorcycleSafetyCourse is the best way to start towards your riding career!
I'm in the 805 - Hope to meet some of you and enjoy the two wheel lifestyle!

Wow, you look like a serious rider! Where did you score your outfit?
Yes! That's the aim! ATGATT and Safe Riding, but have fun with it! This is my first street bike so the ride home was invigorating! I grew up playing around on little 50cc rockets with friends, went into the car scene, then that piece of my heart lit up and took over. I had to get into the saddle!

As for the gear, I sized myself out over time; checking out Revzilla's website on 'Alpinestars' sizing charts and trying out a suit at my nearest Cyclegear shop. From there, I searched online for the best prices! All shipped to my door, head to toe, and it all fit perfect! I really love the way the leathers fit, Alpinestars did a good job on the cutting of the leather for optimal comfort while in the saddle. Otherwise, I pieced all the gear together to have that yellow in it, surprisingly the neon orange the suit came with fit really well with the scheme.

So tell me about how you found the Alpinestars sizing? I have gloves and a jacket from them and find that the sizing tends to be a bit on the small side. I am trying to find a nice pair of Alpinestars pants to go with my jacket and before I pull the trigger wanted to see what you think about that part.

Hey! So what I used was Revzilla's Alpinestars Sizing Chart. Here is is below for Alpinestars Men's Pant Sizing (Assuming Male), for best choice. My honest opinion before I go in, literally take a string or a measuring tape and size yourself. i.e. Pant Size, Waist Size, Hip Size, Thigh Size, Pant Inseam, and General Height. Check out the chart below! :D

So check it out, I know I'm a medium build, but I was recommended to try on a 50 and it felt a little too "loose". This is the suit were talking about. So checking the sizing out online and literally taking a string and sizing myself. I noticed it broke down Mediums to a Small Version or Large Version. I liked a tighter fit; considering my build, measurements, and what I've previously tried on at my local shop. I realized, 48! SM-MD fits me best! It was tight at first, but broke in after the first to second wear comfortably.

On another sizing note, I did notice the Boots are sized different. They like to make their boots ONE SIZE Smaller. I'm an 8.5 US in Nikes; that translated to 7.5 US Alpinestar boots. They fit perfectly snug with socks and suit/pant tucked in. But everything else, from my suit purchasing experience, if you properly measure yourself; you'll be able to find an appropriate fit accoring to the sizing charts at RevZilla.

(Not promoting them or anything, that's where I found the Alpinestars sizing charts and found it very helpful for my purchase.)
