I currently have a 650 Exec and a Victory bagger, and my riding gear is the same for either bike:I was wondering what you guys are wearing when riding your Burgman Scooters? I am coming from riding Harleys in the past and have some leather gear but not sure about boots on a scooter. I would like to hear from some of you and what you recommend to wear.
Same for me, but I switched 3/4 helmet to full face and purchased summer jacket.I feel naked by comparing my gear to your gears, i only wear a 3/4 helmet and my regular clothes.
Repeat all aboveA scooter is a motorcycle. If you go down while riding it you face the same injury possibilities as on any motorcycle. You should wear the same gear you would wear on any other motorcycle. I wear boots, armored over pants, armored jacket, gloves and helmet. Summer gear is mesh and vented, winter gear is not.
Chatman, I'd be interested on hearing more about your Danner boots (which model). I thought the Chippewa Rally Boots had a shin guard on them. My Dr Martens have extra padding over the ankles but are too short in heel & sole height so more often I use my unarmored Xelement boots or my work loggers (Chippewa & Carolina) which have more height.I doubt that my Chippewa Rally boots would have been nearly as good as the Danners in this particular situation.
