Heard of them just haven't seen any first hand, it does look SWEET though.

How does the roo feel? I've had gloves and shoes with roo leather and I've always felt that they were more supple and softer than cowhide, kinda like deerskin.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head... I still have sirloin leftover from my a$$ less chaps and leather jacket from the cruiser! I'd like to get a jacket/ pants with armor built in, but definatly can't pull of leather pants... Maybe jeans w/ knee pucks??? I'm just real tired of steak...

Gee mikey. I don't think a man your size should walk around in knee pads.

Could send the "wrong message"

Spyke makes high end leather apparel. They are an Italian company - believe it or not and the only location they import to at the moment in the Americas is North America. Great high end stuff..... but as you all already guessed, they do not make them in ... ahem.... "Executive" sizes.

As far as Roo skin goes, it is lighter and feel similar to Goat or deer skin. However, Roo does not breath and it does not stretch. And of course it will cost you at least two testis' to get a good Roo skin. When buying roo, be sure to pick a reputable brand or try to investigate first. Much like cowhide, roo skin / hide comes in different grades.... and it takes a lotta, lotta Wallabees to make a good suit.

Aquila Out!

Well, this last one will blend with the RC8 but it won't with the MV Agusta... neither is the grey/black though.

Tough choices... buy them all
