Dunno, but it's on closeout at the Motorcycle Superstore. Only in size 40, though. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...-Racesuit.aspx

I have a set of them, and I like them just fine. They breath well and help keep you dry while sweating. I wore them last season during the hottest part of the summer and had no complaints. Sure they aren’t A-Stars, but hey! They do exactly what I need!…My buddy brought to my attention a set of A-Stars that a guy was selling way cheap….but I just couldn’t justify it when my leathers are still great!…If you get them you won’t be disappointed…They could stand a little more leg room…but all in all, great leathers, I’m still “Rockin” them.

They have a Return Policy http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...turnsInfo.aspx , but I never had to return anything thus far. I have heard they have an excellent Customer Service Dept., and I myself am a repeat customer who's very happy with their pricing, communication, and fast shipping.

If your combined order is over $100, then you get free shipping, too! With that said, there are certain things I will not order on-line, and I would not order a 1-piece suit online for your first time. I would go purchase from Patrick and get fitted for the right size, which is exactly what I did, and came home with a Fieldsheer RevoSport

Dave,
They're a decent suit although they fit a bit on the short side so they'll probably be an issue with your height. Can you say speak like Mickey Mouse?

You are also not a Euro 54, probably much closer to a Euro 58.

Next time you're by we can check your sizing and you can try some on.
There's several brands that are on closeout right now so we should be able to find something that fits and is a good deal at the same time.

I've ordered a bunch of stuff from the superstore, shipping has been fast.

The only problem that I've had is when they shipped me the wrong K&N air filter. I called them up and they swore that they shipped me the right one. I had to direct the lady to the K&N site to show her that the manufacturer even showed a different part number than they sent. They shipped me a flat panel filter and mine is a tall "D" shape.

Finally they agreed to take it back. When I asked them if they could ship me the right one, she said that they would just end up shipping me the same wrong part. She said that their vendor is the one that ships it out. I asked if she could put in some correction so that this doesn't happen to someone else and she said "No". I got my money back and ordered from someone else.

you should be okay. I'm 6'5" and weigh about 250, and squeeze into the size 50.
