I just picked up my new leathers today :D and am just wondering about the fit. The jackets fits good and so do the pants, but when they're zipped together they're pretty tight length wise. I'm a pretty tall guy and am wondering a couple things. are they going to stretch? My second thought is to go to a seemstress place and get like a couple inch strip with zippers on top and bottom, in effect giving me a bit more length with the suit. Any help wound be appreciated

Whatdya get man?

I'm about the same height as you, so I don't think that's the issue (havn't tried on some leathers myself).

Most leathers (espcially 1pc) are designed for the riding position and not for standing straight up, I think only Dainese currently makes a set that allows you to stand up without straining the goodies. :p

Wheredya get it? How much?

I think you'll thank yourself in the Summer though, I was hot as a mofo last summer in just jeans and a light leather jacket (non-perf). And if you ride in traffic at all, you'll know what I mean, even a slight breeze is supposed to be nice with perf. leathers.

BTW, what kind of pants were you wearing when I met you? Or were those just some funky cargo pants? I didn't get a good look at them but I assumed they were some kind of motorcycle gear.

I got it at modern (broadway & commercial) for 799, pretty good considering the ones I was looking at at rms were gonna cost me 1200. Yeah last summer I got stuck on lionsgate a couple times, jeesuz that's a pain. The pants I was wearing are downhill mountain bike/motocross pants, I had on my hard armour under them. Its not leather but I think it would protect me if I went down, but now I dont have to worry cause I've got leathers :D

Just wear a rain jacket over top for the first little while. I've got a perf jacket and that's what I did. Cozy warm in there with the rain gear over top and cool as a popsicle with the wind coming through the perfs when it gets warm.

I'm a perf'aholic these days..... :D

I got them at modern. Aaron always seems to give me really good prices. I just checked the reciept and it was 329.99 for the boots, I think he was going to give me the chrome ones for 349
