New Rider In Need Of Gear

Hoping to put out a feeler out in the community.

A friend's son just got his first bike and is in need of gear. They don't have a lot of money to work with and he's riding in jeans and sneakers. If anyone has some used gear to donate or for sale at at a good price please let us know.

He's 6' and med build. We had him go into a shop and try on some gear for size and he says A Stars XL fits him well.

They're up in Yakima, but we are headed up there this weekend and we're hoping to put together a care package for them to keep him safe on the bike.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer them.

Thanks, will do!

I told him to log on to PNW and start interacting. I don't think he has just yet.

I have an extra First Gear mesh jacket that came came with my bike I purchased last year. It's a few years old, it's size "Large - Tall". I'm 6'3" 220 and it fits me pretty good may be a touch big for him. I could let it go for $20. Has liner and CE armor in shoulder and elbows, and the standard filler foam back "pad". I'm in the Cedar Hills area

(Black and medium Grey, flash makes it look more white)

Not trying to be an ass, just genuinely curious: he bought a bike but has no money for gear? What bike did he buy?

Pretty striaght forward Bobcat. He's young, he grew up around bikes and always wanted one of his own, so he went out and bought one. It's his main mode of transportation now because it's cheap. Like most young guys he's a lot less worried bout his safety that the rest of his family is, so we're trying to do the right thing and get him geared up.

It's a 2000 GSXR 600

I have a pair of Bilt leather gauntlet gloves, a Cortech mesh jacket, and maybe a pair of AGV Sport leather pants that I haven't worn in ages. I usually wear an A* size 42 jacket, 34"x34" pants and XL gloves, so they might fit him. They're all in like-new shape, but really the old stuff is just taking up space.

For a new rider with NO gear, I would consider it a worthwhile donation. I'll figure out exactly what I have and put it up in the Classifieds if he doesn't need it. Anything I get goes toward the "Buy HalyconSon a pair of Aerostich Darien pants for commuting" fund.
