Unless there is something that I'm missing, the J.R. GPX listed at Imotorcyclestore for 508.95 (w/ free ground shipping) and with newenough.com for 539.99 (I think w/free shipping).

Sounds good other than that.
I have tried on all mentioned items at local shops before hand and tried on a size 46 of the GPX. I was a little bit snug and I'm just mulling wether to get the 46 or go up to the 48. Suggestions?
Yes, I've purchased from www.imotorcyclestore.com, and the shipping was very prompt and they were polite and informative on the phone when I called. Unfortunately I live in Canada, so I got dinged on the taxes coming in. Even though, i still got a jacket, helmet and gloves for cheaper than the helmet (AGV xr-2 Rossi) would've cost me at my local shop. Oh and they threw in a free tshirt too!
From what it sounds like you're getting this gear for riding on the track? If so may I suggest getting a more race oriented lid? I thought when I started riding, hey a helmets a helmet. This is true but riding at high speeds, setting up for corners and popping up for braking, the last thing you want is your helmet lifting up and taking your mind off racing. A lid that is wind tunnel tested and aerodynamically designed not to lift is well worth the money in my experience.
