Re: BMW StreetGuard2 Suit
This article had to be written. I'm not saying that I would have bought this, but of course I had just gone out and spent a bundle on gear.

1200 bucks for a riding suit? For that it ought to deflect radar detectors and make margaritas.

$1,200.00 ????? Has BMW ever heard of the law of diminishing returns? They crossed that threshold somewhere around $800.00. The rest is all about bragging rights, conspicuous consumption, or just plain foolishness. Sad to say, they'll probably sell every one they make.

Geez I will stick with my custom tailored Aerostich thank you very much...

I just hope BMW is not taking a page from Harley's book.

Fred forgot to mention that every suit comes equipped with horizontally opposed boxer shorts.

I was really looking forward to this review because I had been honestly considering this suit. My local dealer wouldn't display with a price and have always been too "busy" to help me when I attempt to ask. Now I know why.

I have two Triumph suits, the perforated Raptor for hot weather and the wet-weather Typhoon. Both of them together came in under the cost of this suit *and* left me with change.

BMW finally built a suit that's more expensive than skin grafts.

I think I'll stick to shorts and flip flops.
