Leather Test

This is 2-yrs old, but may be helpful in giving a bit of insight into choosing the right leathers.

I'm working on it guys.


One thing I noticed is that all suits suck for burst tests according to these guys. Most of the numbers seems low on everything.

I know Spyke, Dainese, and Alpinestar are available here.

I looove the Dainese Bora suit. Kneedraggers has it for $2300 or so... so that'll never happen.

Thanks for the links! I would have to get a custom suit made anyway if I wanted a one piece...Syed makes good ones but they are over a thousand dollars..but well worth it from what I hear.

Hey! Chud stands for Canabalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller.

Now I am beginning to understand, chuddoll.

BTW I was partially blind from wacking off, and now that I have tried to read your jpegs, I can't even see the shwingerlator any more. Thanks, jerk.

I think you're looking at the wrong section of my site.

Maybe so, but it's water under the bridge now.

Who carrys Spyke here in the states? The closest one I could find was in Canada.

But I have to say, I love my Spyke suit. It's old and beat up (and well ventilated thanks Kevin ) but it fits me soooo good. If you know of a vendor I need to get some replacement armor for the arms.

I got an AGV suit for $200 off ebay, kinda old and a little small...size 40, should have got like a 41 or 42! But I lowsided in it and it held up great!!!

One question, can a leather suit a little too tight screw up my riding? It isn't Over tight, but just a little to notice when leaning off the bike, Both Butt Cheeks.?

It should fit a little snugish but if it constrains you from normal movement on the bike at all, it's probably too tight.
