One Piece
PROS - Safer

Two Piece
PROS- Easier to get into and you can replace the pants or jacket independently and wear the jacket by it's self if you choose.

1pc

ive read that the 2pc sometimes fall apart or rip at the seams when you crash. there is also a greater chance of it getting wrapped up in something if your sliding next to the bike.

Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited has some Kobes suits for sale. i really liked that suit since its really comforatble and held up very good in my highside.

Save your money and get both. You'll get every type of gear you can if you care to ride all year long. Trust me.....I've got 3 pairs of boots for different occasions, Suits for track in summer and winter. 2 piece which I seldom wear because I don't do much street anymore. 4 different type helmets all for how I feel like riding that day. It's preference on your own riding style. Please get something because you never know when you unlucky day will arrive.
