My following comments may be obvious to the OP but I hope they help someone who's new to buying leathers.

Looking for a used suit online is likely one of the more inefficient ways to acquire one. Having owned several suits from different manufacturers I've come to recognize that different brands size VERY differently. For instance, Italian clothing manufacturers tend to size small relative to American brands. Not always, but in many instances. This is the situation even for the "same" size. Furthermore, since leather stretches so much, even 2 of the exact same suits will fit differently after being broken in by different users. In addition, do you want to pay shipping on a large, bulky and heavy suit that you haven't even been able to try out yourself? The same off the shelf measurements will also be vastly different because of the length (height of rider) of the suits themselves. One brand and model's 56 might be fit for a 5'11 rider while another brand/model of 56 will be better for 6'4". That's pretty typical.

Since you live in California, you're optimally located to try and buy a used suit from Craigslist. How come you don't just go that route? You have a lot of track enthusiasts in your state and you're located near huge populations. If you want to save some money with a used suit, you're going to have to drive to various individual sellers and actually try on what they've got for sale.

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!

Thanks man I appreciate your input, but I was just trying to see what was out there I have been shopping around on CL and offer up but no dice yet. I may just pick up a sedici as I'm sort of on a budget

I had a cycle gear seduci suit, even crash tested one, it did it's job, only gripe I had was the cheap zipper I broke, took it back to cycle gear and they swapped it out with a brand new one, no questions asked (before I crash tested it)
