Two-piece Leathers - July 18, 2008, 02:24 PM

So I need to get a new leather jacket. As this is my first season riding I'm going to go to cornerspeed or something like that towards the end of this season or begining of next. I'd also like to have some leather on my legs for some of the street rides. That being said would a 2 piece race suit be my best option? Are there any downsides to the 2 piece compared to the 1 piece? I'm looking at A* SG-1. Thoughts and advise would be appreciated.

The draw back to a 2 piece is the zipper is the weak point. It also is a little difficult getting them zipped together with the pants on, at least for me.
The nice thing is on the street when you get some place you can take the jacket off.
I use the 2 piece on the street and the 1 piece on the track, consequently that means the 1 piece doesn't see much action!

Just do the 1 piece...I had the same dilema but I didnt have the means to buy 2. But overall safety 1 piece is superior.


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...
