Whether you're hanging out with your buddies, getting dragged to the shopping mall with the missus, or trying to smooth talk your way into Valentino Rossi's private hospitality area at the MotoGP – flying your motorcycle manufacturer color is cooler a gang war.

Beware of cheapo imitation stuff that is often being touted at bike meets, local markets, or race events. If it's going for less than the sort of figures you should expect from originals they often are imitations or factory rejects. Most of this imitations are being manufactured by child labor in countries around Thailand. The latest and greatest branded gear – show your allegiance even when you're not riding your motorcycle.
