Leather Suit for the Motard....

what are you guys using when riding your hyper? road racing suit? since a motard's riding position is more upright, are you guys having any difficulty with suits made for race bikes? i guess the hump in the back is also no longer needed right?

I use a racing suite, 1 piece. The hump adds a certain "coolness factor" to it. Pretty comfortable for me.

oh sorry mate, FYI the motard suits dont have knee sliders so that wont be a issue...maybe send a-stars customer service an email and see if anyone in the USA has them on run out , motostrano did $395 off rrp...they only had a 54 left


worth a shot...its a great suit for the road too, as it aint heavy and tiring to wear..infact i had velcro sewn on the knees, i know use mine for ride days on my other bike (can put sliders on) its so bloody comfy...

actually saw on another forum when motostrano posted that it was going to be discontinued.... all the way to their clearance of the last remaining blue coloured suits which were the least popular. i'll shoot a-star and see if they even make the size 46 although i won't be holding my breath on this.

Always, leather coat, good gloves. But, jeans normally.

Actually I recently got these Dainese Norsorex underwear pants with protective padding to wear under my Levi's for short rides. Good impact protection but probably poor abrasion protection. Boots + jacket essential.

I wear joe rocket alter ego mesh pants and a joe rocket jacket that is mostly leather, similar to the pro street. I also wear my sidi boots and gauntlet gloves.

I wear a one piece teknic xcelerator suit on the track.
