New one piece suit...boots don't fit?????????

I just picked up a one piece suit and my current Alpinestar boots will not zip all the way up since the suits legs are too thick. Is this normal, do I need to upgrade boots to accomadate a one piece suit?????

Probably, the new vertigo STs are nicely designed for wearing over leathers, Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited was showing me.

I have the same problem with my Frank Thomas suit and my Sidi boots.
I was thinking of just having my girlfriend cut out the stretch material in the calf part of the suit and stitching the leather part back. Might work???

At first I was just thinking my calf muscles were just too powerful. LOL...

i have the big calf problem as well. i always had problems getting my TXC boots zipped up over my leathers. i bought a pair of the SIDI ST Airs a couple months ago. these are by far the nicest fitting, most comfortable boots i have found. Call Patrick. He'll fix you up.

You better pass the message along Jake!

PS. I just came in the other day and bought a BMC filter to match my brand new full S&S Yoshi with Carbon TRC can And some motozen levers. I'm getting a reflash done this summer and a PCV+Autotune!
