Yah, the suits are supposed to be as tight as a wetsuit. It makes sure that the armor stays in place and you won't get a gash on your elbow like I did.

I did have to smile about the 'flopping around' though. I remember when Skid first got his suit and he called me that he just put it on and how it fit. Then all of a sudden he started breathing like he wasn't getting any air and said he couldn't get out of it. I realized he seriously started to panick, he put down the phone for a long time while I didn't know whether I should hang up and call 911 or what. Then he finally came back online and said that he barely made it out and he was totally exhausted. Starting to sweat more and more while trying to wrestly yourself out of it doesn't appear to help. :eh:

Yea, it is funny now, but it sure wasn't when it happend. To make mattes worse, I had just gotten home and hadn't turned on the air yet so it was still hot in my house.

I called the place that I bought the suit from and he said that they should be tight. I told him yea, but I could hardly get out of it. He then informed me that I probably got one size to big. I said thanks and I'll keep the one I have. The next day I went and bought UA heat gear top and bottom. It makes all of the difference.

In the middle of my flopping around, I did end up turning on the bedroom fan to help try and dry off the sweat. I'm going to go and get some UA stuff on the way home today and try on the suit again tonight ... of course I'll wait till my wife and daughter come home from gymnastics first ... to help and if required ... call 911

I'll be sure to have them video it just in case there's hillarity to be had.

And yes, I'm planning to take my 250 to the track. Signed up for MSRH on the 12th ... can't wait!

sweeet. i'd like to pick up a 250 sometime and track it out.

don't be discouraged by others because they are on 600's or literbikes.....

through the turns, it's all about rider control.

The 250 will be perfect for MSR-H. When I rode on it, I wish I still had my 250.

If it is this snug now you are going to have issues with fitting additional armor under the suit like a back protector.

It's snug with the armor in ... including the back brace. I wanted to make sure that the armor wasn't going to move ... and it's not.

Yeah, I think the 250 will do good on the track, I don't particularly care what others think ... if they laugh at me for having a 250, then they aren't the kind of people I'd like to hang out with anyway.

Patrick gave me some advice last season that really helps.
A) Surround yourself with trustworthy people that are willing to help you peal out of your suit or...

B) Put D-Rings on your suit with hooks on your truck/trailer to peal you out

+1. Not sure about you guys' suits but for us girls, it is very important to have someone nearby who knows how to help us out; especially, when you come back from a session and have to go to the restroom real bad and need to get out of the thing real quick!

Remember, they make you drink a LOT out there...

pre-under armour......a pain in the to get in and out of the suit


post-under armour......as simple as taking off any other article of clothing

never ride without it now. helps keep the leathers/lining from sticking to my skin also.

so much drama I'm glad my leathers are 2 piece with a 360 degree zipper. I just unzip the top and then its like putting on a jacket and taking off pants.

So, I'll be heading out to Sports Authority and look for a set of UA gear and give it another try.... maybe baby powder would help too... would keep me dry and smelling nice.
:eh: Not sure have you seen that Friends episode where Ross tries to get his leather pants back on using baby powder? :laughing6

I think I'd actually RATHER take a 250 out my first time on the track as opposed to my bike.

Don't get the stuff from Wal-mart, it is not a soft as the UA. I also find that the UA actually keeps me cooler. It is a must have!

Dudes ... and Dudettes ... I went a got a set of UA gear (longsleeve shirt and bike shorts) It was like day and night, getting the stuff on and more importantly off was 1/100th the effort.

That was freaking amazing. I actually put the suit and took it off like 5 times in a row just make sure I wasn't dreaming. didn't even break a sweat.

I got one more question ... kind of personal ... dudes ... when you wear bikershorts ... you wearing your tightie-whities too?
