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.

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.
