Thumbs down Ronksl Suits on EBAY =

I bought this black and white 1-piece suit 2 months ago from an Ebay store called Ronksl. They ask for every single measurment and you can choose from a number of designs and colors schemes. I thought to myself, ", $370 US dollars for a custom suit is pretty badass!" WRONG! I got the suit back for the UK after 3 weeks from the day I ordered it. It looked pretty sweet but the fitment was just all off.

The only thing they got right was the shoulders and my waist. I am 6'2" weighing at 150lbs and this suit is meant for a 6'5" with a big ol' booty. Also, the back hump serves no ventilation purpose nor do the paddings serve to protect you from a hardcore wipeout.

I was desperate to get to the track so I ordered this $370 "custom made" suit. Ive done 2 trackdays now and I feel super UNCOMFORTABLE. The knee sliders sit too low. And its like I'm wearing MC Hammer's pants. BTW I had a suit taylor measure me and I double checked his numbers.

DO NOT ORDER FROM RONKSL! You will regret it.

Having said that, does anybody know the number to Jessie's alteration near Motorcycles Unlimited? Ive searched the forums but no number. Also, how much would a full alteration cost? I don't have money for even a rank Thomas suit and even if I did I would rather spend it on trackdays. Help will be much appreciated!

Well, I should have you on video then. I was picking folks out and following them for a lap or so, and then moving on to the next rider. They will be up pretty soon.
