Time for Fun Gear Whore Rating

Are you a squid or a gear whore? Using the guide below, give yourself points for each piece of street gear that you own. Using the grading scale in bold at the bottom, calculate and post your rating. Highest total score wins the RS Gear Whore title.

1 point for each pair of motorcycle specific shoes/hi-tops you own
2 points for each pair of touring/commuting boots
3 points for each pair of race boots costing less than $300
4 points for each pair of race boots costing more than $300

Pants/Trousers:
1 point for each pair of motorcycle jeans or cargo pants you own
2 points for each pair of mesh motorcycle pants/trousers
3 points for each pair of textile motorcycle pants/trousers
4 points for each pair of leather motorcycle pants/trousers

Jackets:
1 point for each protective vest you own
2 points for each mesh motorcycle jacket you own
3 points for each textile motorcycle jacket
4 points for each leather motorcycle jacket

Gloves:
1 point each pair of shorty mesh, textile or fingerless motorcycle gloves you own
2 points for each pair of other shorty or 3/4 leather gloves
3 points for each pair of full gauntlet leather gloves costing less than $200
4 points for each pair of full gauntlet leather gloves costing more than $200

Helmets:
1 point for each helmet that is not full face.
2 points for each flip-up style helmet.
3 points for each full face helmet that cost less than $300
4 points for each full face helmet that cost more than $300

Full Protective Suits:
1 point for each rain suit you own.
3 points for each textile full suit.
10 points for each leather full suit.

Misc. Gear Bonuses:
1 point for each reflective or cooling vest.
1 point for each pair of knee/shin guards or padded underwear (like Bohn).
1 point if you have more than 2 helmet shields.
2 points for each strap on chest/back protector.
2 points if you've upgraded your armor in your motorcycle pants/jackets.

Brand Whore Bonus Points:
1 point special bonus, in addition to points you claimed above, for each item you own made by Motoport, Klim, Aerostich, Dianese, REV'IT, Held, Spidi, Arai, Shoei, Bell or Schuberth etc

Ratings:

0 to 9 points: You are a Squid. Good luck surviving, you are going to need it.
10 to 14 points: You are a Solid Beginner. Keep looking to upgrade your kit, and be sure to wear ATGATT.
14-25 points: You are Prepared. Congratulations for taking gear seriously.
25-39 points: You are a Connoisseur. Your fine palate for protective gear will serve you well, but your bank account may be in trouble.
40 points or over: You are a Gear Whore - get some priorities. See you on the next episode of "Hoarders."
