Battley's, I actually got a suit there Saturday. Mostly Spidi but I saw Revit and maybe something else. Also I believe Paris at Moto Gearu has a lot of suits, no retail shop but he's at some trackdays and will show you suits if you contact him, just google the name. He said he'll be at Summit Main next Monday.

I wonder if Cycle Gear in Laurel will have suits available. Would not hurt to give them a call.

cycle gar's store brand BILT has a pretty good suit at really good price, good reviews too.

or make a day trip out to philly's Revzilla, very good selection of Dainese suits as well, then you can head over to Tony Luke's for some cheesesteaks which is just down the road.

Battley has a good selection. I got my suit from them they gave me allot of help picking out a suit hell practically acted like my personal shopper running around getting suits for me to try on. Then they gave me one hell of a discount on one. Worth the drive.

Remember boys and girls if we don't shop at the local shops we will not have local shops to shop at.

if they give this kind of service, it's worth it.

I got that kind of customer service at Revzilla. was there 2 hours and tried on a bunch of jackets till we found the one that fit me the best.

Revzilla was free shipping for one time if size is an issue. It helped me as I was one size off. Videos should help to some extent.

Have you been to Battley?

How much selection do you need?

I've shopped Revzilla, Bob's BMW, and Battley. They all carry a fairly wide selection depending on what time of year you're shopping.

My Daniese suites came from Revzilla, my Rev-it suites came from Battley and Bob's. I have the wants for a Spidi suite, once I have the funds I'll be down at Battley. All are solid shops IMHO.
