HELP im in a BIND

ok, so my company is paying for all of us motorcycle riders to goto a "motorcycling class". We were told that the owners would pay for it and all we needed to do is bring our gear and our bike. About a month ago i recieved a confirmation letter in the mail from CLASS MOTORCYCLE SCHOOL, and it says that we need full leathers, helmet, boots and gloves (like any other track day). I asked the owners and the response i got was its ok we have a bunch of cruzers going, its not the same thing it'll be fine.

THEN, yesterday we have a big meeting and now we need to get "as close as possible " to having the right gear. Looking for a straight answer, i called the main office of CLASS in california and the lady there said it HAD TO BE A 1 OR 2 PC RIDING SUIT, FULL FACE HELMET, AND OVER THE CUFF GLOVES.

I NEED GEAR FAST............

I HAVE AN ICON LEATHER JACKET THAT I *THINK* WILL WORK (it is leather and padded) AND A HELMET BUT I NEED PANTS, GLOVES AND BOOTS.

i am a big guy 5'8" 275 lbs

ive got a 38-40" waist and a size 10-10/12 foot.

i went to cyclegear and the only pair of acceptable pants under 300.00 were too small. also, all of the boots would not zip or velcro due to my rather large calves ( thanks to all of my high school coaches and their love for the squat rack )

I AM SUPPOSED TO BE AT MSR AT 7.30 SATURDAY PLEASE HELP

it is NOT procrastination on our part..................we were under the impression that this was not a "trackday" but rather a class for street riders of somesort just being given at msr. it wasn't until YESTERDAY that we were informed that it WAS a trackday, and even at that we wern't told that we had to follow the rules perfectly, we were instructed to get " as close as possible". It wasn't until I called myself that i found out that we HAD to be in compliance with what the normally require.

im not even opposed to renting some leather if patrick has some stuff that would fit me. ill come to the store and try it on and stuff.

fyi, your jacket will only work if it zips to some pants, a 2 piece UNZIPPED is not recommended for the track.
