Listen to FightingChance. Non-motorcycle specific gloves are not designed to hit the pavement at even a moderate speed and stay in one piece.

I'd suggest full gauntlets over short cuffs even if...

I used to have an OGK FF3, and it was a great helmet. I'm actually thinking about picking up an FF5 within a year, especially if it has a round head shape.

That's great news! Teknic tends to be under rated gear that crashes really well.

Teknic is pretty good quality at a decent price. From personal experience, it crashes pretty well also.

I've also heard good stuff about the AGVsport lineup as well.

Thanks! I kind of hope this is the case since I wasn't looking forward to taking my entire fuel system apart (most of my DIY projects tend to go awry).
