Probably not. Unless your specific use includes track days only, a race suit is not the most practical piece of motorcycling apparel. You may be sensing a theme here, but it is something I have dealt with in the past on a regular basis. Buy what makes the most sense for what you want to do with it. A race suit is fine when you’re on your motorcycle, but if you would like to run around town, grab groceries, or maybe stop for lunch on your ride, it can be a huge PITA. A jacket and pants will offer similar protection when fitted correctly and connected (if applicable) and be the most versatile option for most scenarios. It is even enough to get you onto a track for a trackday should you have a hankering to do so as long as it’s leather and the jacket connects to the pant.

    One page, please?

      Ditto, this feels like those Facebook click-bait lists.

      I agree, guys. Sorry, it’s not up to me. Thanks for making it known, though. That’s the first step to change.

        Thank you.

    Here’s a question that should be asked more often:

    “How close can you get to the online price of $whatever it is?”

    Give your local dealers/retailers a chance to price match- most will get pretty close to the online prices- and if they do, give them your business if you want local places to keep inventory for you to check out.

    The other thing is that online outlets often (not always) have tires & helmets that are close to their “sell by” date whereas brick & mortar stores usually have fresher stock.

      Good call!
