New Leathers

I've been hunting for a suit (not for the track, but street riding) for most of the year now. Think I've found a decent one that has the protective armour and removeable pucks etc. Wanted to try and match the RC colours as close as possible too. $265 Cdn at my door. Whadya think?

Nice...please post link as I am somewhat of a gear whore.

On a side note, to spot clean Mr. Clean magic eraser does the trick on my white leathers...you can thank b.miller for that suggestion, works great.

How did I find them? went to google and then typed in "honda two piece leather suit". Then clicked on "images" on the left, found the right images and clicked on them. This took me to the websites.

My first reaction was Whoa! that's cool! I love graphics/scheme. But the price seems pretty cheap to what I'm used to seeing. Seems too cheap. Anyone really tried these suits or jackets?

Thank you for that elaborate step by painful step tutorial. But could you make a video to better help me get it?

May not be track worthy but could be a good around town set, coffee runs that sort of thing.

Hell they maybe topnotch ya never know. From my past experiences more money doesn't always account for better product. In most cases yes but not always.

My bad, it's $278 Cdn delivered not $265. E-bay purchase from a Canadian vendor so no cross border fees or anything. Shipping was a bit high but it's expedited so should be here end of next week. Like I said, don't doo track and it's better than my JR touring gear for the RC. Bit loud on the graphics for an old dood like me but wtf? Might be fun if I do get pulled over and my old guy face and hair show after the lid comes off. Just hope I get to wear 'em once or twice before the season closes in for good.
