I thought I was treating myself when I bought an Aerostich - at half the price. And no one has accused them of being cheap.

They are more street oriented, yours is for the track.



To each his own.

I was there the other week (wanted a consultation on adding a full-circumference zip to my existing tecnics, and also to give Helmut a chance to testride my GF's VStrom 650)...



There was a guy picking up an absolutely beautiful new suit. He got himself an MV Agusta F4 Tamburini, and was getting a suit to match.



IT was absolutely beautiful, with an amazing MV logo on the back, and red/yellow/blue flames up the sleeves, legs, and sides. Gorgeous.

Yes, but can you also leap tall buildings in a single bound?



Very nice looking leathers, though quite expensive for us non-racers.

Can anybody make a suit that does not look like a 1998 power ranger? I double dog dare someone to find/make one.

Love that 1st Marine Division patch, be proud of your service Gabe! You've motivated me to put my 82 Airborne patch on my leathers, a thought that I have had for some time, but never got around to it. Semper Fi from an old dogface.

Anybody else thinks the top half looks like Domino's delivery shirts?



Good review, but I'll stay with my Spidi suit for the next few years, very happy with it. Unless ...



Any timing for publishing the Buell & the 600's story? We only heard which bike won this comparison 2 months ago.

The BMW leathers that were reviewed in July are black/gray. If you're talking about racing leathers, I'm sure Helimot will make plain two-tone ones. Of every mass-produced product in the world, there are always black varieties, as well. Maybe not lemonade.

They sure make beautiful leathers, the last time I attended the CLASS school, Reg Pridmore was wearing a set, and they were fine looking, and according to Reg they were very comfortable, so the next time I have the need and the money, I may have to go that way.
