looking for a place with decent suit selection - May 29, 2008, 12:12 PM

Looking to buy a new 1 piece leather suit. Where is a good place around here that has a decent selection that I can try on? Probably looking at a 44/46.

thanx.

Give them a call before you head up there. So they can check if they have suits around your size to try on.

If you buy one, get it a little large if it doesn't fit perfectly then ask a couple of the racers here. There's a little leather shop in the area that does a great job fitting the suit to your dimensions. Can't remember the name of it, but ask Hollywood or Devious, they were advising me on the purchasing of a suit.

I just bought an AGV 1-piece, size 48. It is supposed to be delivered Monday. You are more than welcome to try it on.

I make the offer because you ride the second-most-awesomest bike made. I almost bought an '08 SE but just had to have an RC...

Nevermind, this AGV 48 is too damned big for me (crap) so I'm guessing it will be pointless for you to try it on. I'm 5'11" about 205.

From what I remember, Battley Cycles had a good selection of Spidi suits. Call Paris @ 301-948-4581 or PM drewalex on here.
