looking to get new leathers what do you suggest

I decided I'm going to do alot more trackdays and wanted to upgrade my leathers. I currently have a 2pc Frank Thomas set up. It fits good and all but I was thinking a 1pc would be better. I'm 6'3 and about 207lbs with monkey arms(that's what my wife says) so it's kinda hard to find some that fit and is still long enough. I've thought of going custom but I know it's going to be high. Does anyone have any suggestions. Of course price will play a part. Trying to keep it under a 1K.

Go to Motorcycles Unlimited or cycle gear and get fitted for a one piece. Komodo makes a great one piece and if im not mistaken Patrick stocks/can order them for you.

depends how much money you want to spend.....

i have the fieldsheer flex 1 piece.....i switched from frank thomas as well....and believe me when i say, the fieldsheer is much more comfortable.

komodo has nice suits also, a bit more money, but nice.

and like everyone else said, go to Motorcycles Unlimited and get fitted. they can tell you which suit will fit you best.

You could probably pull off a plain Jane custom 1pc for $1k. That is what I would go for, better than anything you'll find off the rack. Call up Barnacle Bill and ask for a quote.
