2 piece question

currently only have a textile jacket. Wanting a leather jacket bad. Also would like a suit for when I ride the forest hard and future track days. Wondering if a cheap solution would be to buy a 2 piece and use the jacket as a daily jacket. Are they styled similar?

You can get 2 piece leathers that are styled like one piece or you can get them so they look like a leather jacket and pants. Mostly the difference is the colors.
It's a good option for street riding and occasional track.

So it wouldn't be obvious that you were wearing part of a race suit when you run on a quick errand?

problem with just using the jacket part of a 2 piece suit is that the jacket is cut kinda high. it doesn't fit the same as a regular street jacket.

You should go see Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. He will steer you in the right direction, ensure what you buy fits properly and give you as good a price as you will find anywhere.
