You can find decent gear much cheaper like Tour Master. Electric gloves and such work well and aren't wildly expensive.

How big are you? I've got a brand new Spidi Admiral one piece suit. Never worn.

They went for about a grand brand new.

I'll let it go cheaply.

It will fit someone 5-10 to 6 ft.

Ok gear review, I bought Buz's suit (thanks) & finally got a ride in with it today. I left the house at 29 degees, rode about 40 miles wearing only a long sleeved t shirt and regular jeans under it (and neoprene face mask & 3/4 helmet) at 70-ish MPH on I 81 in Virginia. My stomach (the part I don't want anyway) did get a little cold, and my hands as usual but I diddn't have my liners in the gloves or the heated seat on because I wanted to get a good idea on the warmth of the suit overall.
I tell yall, that suit is warm but a bit restrictive. I tried adjusting the location of the armor panels hoping a little more comfort on my next outing. My only disapointmens were first that its slick against my seat, no grip at all, like ice actually, I kept my feet on the highway pegs more so then usual to keep me back in the seat, cause I found myself creeping up to the tank. If I were to remove the armor, I'm sure it would be more comfortable but I hate to do that. If I had my thermals on or a heated vest or bib & better (heated) gloves, and a rubber mat for the seat I don't think I would've came back. So if ya need a good winter riding get up, I'd say this is it.
