So, I used to ride in a wife beater, basketball shorts, and flip flops. Then I started getting pelted with debris on my feet and in my face, read on here about how just about every one of you has dropped a bike at least once, so I switched to this. I have a SHOEI RF1100 and wear shoes (but not riding boots) Today I bought some good gloves with hard knuckles for protection. Just having jeans, gloves, and a helmet on I felt so much more protected. Now I want a jacket and some boots. I live in FL and will soon be riding 90 mile round trips at interstate speeds and I have no windscreen. I need something that will offer protection from sliding across the pavement as well as being tolerable both in the heat and the cold (if its below 50* I won't ride, but that probably won't ever happen). Is leather better than textile jackets with armor? I don't want to wear huge harley-type riding boots, but is there a hybrid black shoe looking thing that functions as a boot that won't slide off in a wreck?
