    Riding pants for tall/skinny guy

    Finally tired of making excuses why I don't have proper riding pants, I'm prepared to spend up to the $300 mark for some decent textiles or leathers the problem is I'm 6'3" and very thin so finding my fitment is hard. Anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to waste any salesperson's time asking for unattainable items locally.My perfect measurements are 31/34, 32/34 is a more reasonable number however. I ride a gsxr 750 street and hopefully will get some track days or advanced riding courses next season, some rain repellant would be nice and I tend to ride only in the warmer seasons except an occassional winter outing so I need something good for our summer weather primarily

    I fit regular size clothing, but my favorite riding pant are RSD I have the Max Air & Shotgun for leathers & Jet Textile for cloth.

    I have A* that sit on a hanger most of the time.

    Drop by their and see what they can do. Custom work is not that more in cost than the regular.

    I was gonna suggest Tap Moto, but their price is more than 2x your budget.

    I'm kinda in the same boat as you...I've got some JoeRocket Alter Ego pants, that seem to fit OK, the waist is a bit too loose (I have to do up the zipper to the jacket or they will slowly fall down as a walk around).

    I'm a 32 waist, 34 length (maybe a bit longer).

    Durable stuff to crash in. 2x and still doing well. Worth the extra money.

    Check out holeshot - they have a pretty massive selection of stuff to try on.

    A* and Dainese are a more euro/slim fit. There's a lot of stuff on CList that may suit you, I swear everyone selling was either 5'5 or 6'2+.
