Hi ~people

I'll be picking up my 1 pice suit shortly. I was wondering if its possible

to make my suit into moto gp riders style ~ Sponsor patches ~!!

They seem to be printed on the riders suit ~ But does anyone know

if this kind of patching can be done???

In the quest for more speed, the MotoGP Teams found that the old style patches cause drag in windtunnel testing. Now the patches are printed onto the material. Your best bet on getting one, Call Casey.

The harder part is going to be getting it made out of kangaroo with carbon fiber spine protector built in. Their suits weigh half of ours.

Customize your own leathers. If I had something cool to put on mine, and had a lot of money just laying around, I'd get my suit customized. This is one site that I found a year or so ago that specialized in custom lettering and designs...

I wish they provided vinyl printing..........
For the bike?.....There are all sorts of decals available on eBay. If you are looking for sponsor-type stickers, just contact the manufacturers directly. More often than not, they will be more than happy to send you a few decals to stick on your bike, and usually for free. They figure two $0.10 stickers and postage for free advertising is a no-brainer.

Usually your sponsors will supply the patches and stickers, along with specific location guidelines...and of course that big fat check in the package.

Go to e-bay and look up thepatchhouse. I had some Rossi custom leathers made and bought all my own patches I wanted to use from them. You can find any patch you want from them.

Talk to Pilot, tell them you want a suit that looks exactly like Casey Stoner's, fill in the measurement form, and they'll make it for you for a grand plus shipping.

Excellent suits. I recommend them to everyone. I'm so happy with mine that I'm thinking of ordering a spare.
Thanks Matt ~!! I hope they use printing rather tan stitching .~!

You caught me offguard, as I've never heard of using vinyl on leathers. I guess if it was really thick you could sew some on, though.
