I am taking my test very soon and want to buy a set of leathers with boots gloves and helmet.
I am thinking about buying the leathers (2 piece) second hand along with the boots and gloves (maybe not the gloves as I can get some pretty decent ones new for about £40).
For the helmet I would like to get a Shark s700/900 as I like the fact that the bit covering the mouth is low whereas other helmets cut off the end of the helmet short. I have found a shop on ebay selling helmets, one of which is called Duchinni which has the same style as a Shark.
Would you recommend buying second hand equipment?
