Need to check:

1) price of fullface helmets (Shoei/Arai/etc)
2) 2-pc leathers (Dainese/Alpinestar/etc) or vented riding jackets
3) riding boots (Gaerne/Alpinestar/Dainese/etc)

If its cheap...then I won't bother to bring me gear when I move to Dubai.

Cheers....

A AGV Stealth series would cost anywhere from 1400Dhs upwards....Also you dont have a wide choice as in places with a more developed bike culture...

Better buy your stuff and come here Beau.

Not only are the prices absurd.,.. there isnt any choice here at all. Another option would be for you to buy stuff off the net and pay a 5% import duty when they arrive

wear your motorcycle jacket and pants. Keeps the helmet in your handcarry. That should help with the weight.

We don't have those here in Malaysia, I don't even think in Singapore. Can get Motovation in Singapore though, around SG$150-200.

My experience in crashes, no point spending $$$ on crash bungs...the cheaper ones would do the job as well.

No links but I have the contact of the shops that I frequent in S'pore...that is if you're going to S'pore cuz they don't deliver to overseas.

Motovation wouldn't if you get the ones made for your ride. The cheaps ones yes but minimal & almost unnoticeable.
