Good Place For Safety Gear

Was just wondering if anyone knew of a good place near Dade City Fl I could go to try on a few helmets. I figure I could find a better deal online but id like to get fitted for one first. If I gotta pay a little more to make sure I have the right fit so be it. Probably also gonna need a riding jacket aswell but being its getting to be back in the 90's here in Fla i was hoping someone could suggest what kind of material I should look into' a full out leather jacket would prob kill me on a normal day in this heat. Anyways ty ahead of time for any advise.

Any motorcycle powersports dealer in your area will (should) have a variety of helmets on hand....

Get a high flow mesh jacket (mesh with the big holes, not the little ones) and CE armor and you'll be fine in the heat.

Try Cahills Yamaha in Zephyrhills. They're not too far from you. I've had good service from the Cahills in Tampa.

The coolest jacket for our HOT weather at a reasonable price I've found so far is the Joe Rocket Phoenix model for about $150 or less.

Good luck!
