White helps quite a bit with other vehicles being able to see you, but it also shows dirt a lot easier. I went with a white 1 piece and am very happy with it, however I only wear it a few times a year.
'Preciate it Ned & Denver, cheers boysAfter doing my first couple of track days this month I have to commit to a 1-piece. I like the black with white. Keep us posted!
Anyone ? Sorry for the bump gents but i'm ready to pull the trigger on the Laguna seca so...Welp, the race hump on the Laguna seca evo is huge... The one on the Crono and Trickster are smaller compared to the Laguna...
Any experience gents on wearing a backpack when also wearing a suit/jacket with a (big) race hump ?
I'm afraid is going to [email protected] the aerodynamics while also being uncomfortable (i.e: backpack pushing towards the lower side of my back due to the grade/tilt caused by the race hump).
Kind of a specific question since not all race humps are equal in size...
Hey NedNice looking suit Rosso. Good reviews. The hump has air intakes to keep you cool. I think I will go for the same one shortly. Then we could compare humps ;-)
Do you just use a back-pack on your travels? I much prefer using a rear luggage like the DP or SW-Motech. It lowers the weight and leaves you free and comfortable, no additional weight for leaning/cornering/riding, etc.Won't work for a pillion of course...
Nice looking back pack but yes, you may have some fit issues between these. I find that both results in some catching/rubbing between the two which is not a safety or real discomfort issue, but can annoy the crap out of you after a few hours. Personally I try to target the best scenario but at the end of the day if I have a little discomfort/annoyance on the first trip, I would then just try adjusting around. Maybe less in the tank bag or such...you know you can get 4 days out of your draws right? Front-side, back-side, outside-front-side, outside-back-side ;-) The back pack does look like smooth edges which is good.
I was able to travel with the DP tail bag for 4-5 days but it was just riding and the pub at night, I wasn't packing my dancing shoes and good shirt for a night on the town. I'm not sure an extra 1/2 inch of hump will make that much difference for your fit - some of the ladies might disagree!
I recently added an SW-Motech fast clip on tank bag, only a small one for short day trips but they do make some mid/larger ones. I really love it and for sure with the tail bag and tank bag I won't be using a back pack. It's also good to lay over the tank bag when tucking in on the highway...can be pretty comfy...was thinking I might have a little nap on it the first time I took it out ;-)

I roll with a 2 peice leather Dainese suit (c2 racing jacket/delta evo pants), the way I see it, I might be on the track a couple times a year, but the rest of the time I'm on the street. However, from Dainese at least, the two peice suit is not meant to be worn without the bottoms because the jacket is actually shorter and the pants come up higher which would look funny in a pair of jeans and offer little protection for your lower back (at least that's what the sales guy told me). So I went with separates, a little more expensive but the versatility is great.'Evening boys
After my last bike-trip to the Balkans a couple of months ago and with another one around the corner (come summer) i think it's time for a leather suit.
Now, i hear you say "what's wrong with corduras ?" well, leather is always preferable from a protection standpoint, plus, it's not like you can go to the track in a cordura set.
Money's kinda tight but i will not skimp on protection, after all, a good suit is an investment and will last you many years (if properly taken care of).
Here's my dilemma though : 1-piece or 2-piece ? i understand the pros and cons between the 2 of them and that's basically a trade-off between protection and comfort.
Now, the suit is going to be used mainly for trips/travelling (with a couple of trackdays thrown here 'n' there) so i'm trying to put things into perspective here :
Summer, 35++ degrees celsius...leathers...yeah, you know the feeling...not a fun one, especially if you're used to (vented) corduras/summer jackets/gear.
An under-suit is mandatory obviously, still, there's no denying that you can't really avoid sweating like a pig while wearing one during the hot months.
Regarding now the 1-piece Vs 2-piece :
Yes, a 1-piece one is obviously more safe but...what about those rest-stops ?
Thinking it's going to be a nightmare in case of trying to take a piss - or even worse - a dump - 'cause we all know how "clean" gas-stations in the middle of nowhere can be, am i right ?Just imagining half of the suit...lying down on the floor...yeah, not the prettiest picture nor the most ideal/hygienic one.
In fact, i'm really interested in the "art of taking a dump when wearing a race-suit:registered:", care to shed some light on this ?
The 2-piece, well, it's obviously going to be more comfortable generally speaking, still, it's missing on the protection part compared to a 1-piece one (duh).
Don't know gents, my mind tells me to get a 2-piece suit but my heart...a 1-piece one, again, i'm looking at this as an investment and i'd hate to make a bad choice.
Do any of you travel frequently wearing leather suits ?
Is there a noticeable difference between a vented/perforated one and a non vented/perforated one ?
keep in mind, i'm going to be doing/travelling 600+ Km's a day - don't know if that says anything about the comfort factor of the suit.
Thanks in advance boys, any info will be greatly appreciated
Much appreciated kind sir but, i'm not in the good ol' US of A so...Pretty sweet deals though !
sup bro ?Good to hear that the deliberation paid off and you are happy with the results. Putting this one on my Christmas list!
If you stick your avatar's head on that pic Rosso you might look alright ;-)
