Our gear requirements are easy to meet, and are items that all motorcyclists should own and use. Quality riding gear should be viewed as an investment, not an expense. If you purchase high-quality items, they should provide you with many years of protection and comfort. We've included some photos below, but there are many options for good quality motorcycle gear.
One-piece leathers, or two-piece leathers that connect with a zipper are best. If the jacket and pants do not connect, they must fully overlap when the rider is seated on the bike in the tucked position.
We also allow non-leather riding suits (such as Aerostich) provided they are motorcycle specific and have extra padding in the knees and elbows at a minimum. If they don't have the padding built in, consider purchasing separate padding for these areas.
MESH type gear is not allowed.
At the NJ track, a SNELL 2000 or 2005 helmet is required. This is a NJ state law (one that we do not agree with, by the way!). At the New Hampshire track, an UNDAMAGED, full-faced helmet with DOT, SNELL, or BSI rating. A high-quality "flip up" type helmet will also be allowed in the RED group only.
HELMET FIT: It is imperative that your helmet fit properly. There should be no space between your head and face, and the cheek and forehead pads. If anything, the pads should gently compress your face. If you can easily fit a finger between your head and the pads, then your helmet is improperly fitted and may not adequately protect you in a crash.
PLEASE ... DO NOT show up with a "too big" helmet!
All riders must have a "hard" back protector. However, we also allow the CE approved armor such as "knox" or "bohn" brands. The thin foam pads generally included with jackets is NOT APPROVED. Below are a couple of samples of what we mean by "hard" protection. If you are unsure, please send me a photo or website link showing your back protection and I will let you know.
Must be full length, non-mesh, leather motorcycle gloves. There should be no rips or excessive "scuffs". When in the riding position, there can be no exposed skin. The gloves must have a gauntlet that fully covers your wrist.
Motorcycle specific boots that fully cover the ankle are required. Boots should have significant protective items in the ankle area. High-top sneakers, "stunting" boots, and workboots are not allowed.
KNEE SLIDERS/TOE SLIDERS:
If your gear has these, they must be plastic or leather. All "sparking" type sliders are strictly prohibited!
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me to discuss. While we strongly encourage all riders to purchase their own high-quality gear, we do rent some of the items on a first come-first served basis. Please email me for additional details.
