listen to this all the time or read Code's book about 1 million times!

Yes, you can trail brake corners, as in front brake or drag rear, whatever works.

My exact thought about the leathers. I had been searching for about a week from Phoenix, to Vegas even in SoCal for a set at a good price and these ended up popping up about 15 minutes from my house. Regarding the pucks, Iím a nerd about seeing my own progress so adding my own scuffs is a must for me. Wonít be changing them to go to the canyons but definitely will before I hit the track. I think the suit is a tad short overall, theyíre maybe an inch above my wrist and maybe 1.5-2.5 above my ankle. First thing I did was throw in my boots to make sure it went together right and I think any set of gauntlet styles gloves will suffice. Iíve yet to pick any up though. Wanting to wear it to this weekend to hit the canyons but without the gloves Iím sure itíll look goofy so I likely wonít.

To be honest I was never much of a fan of the gen 2 either. Up until buying it I thought they were ugly and fat looking. I might get shunned for this but I even disliked the kawi green and initially wanted to order a set of fairings at my first chance. Needless to say it has grown on me. Will likely change the color of the wheels but the rest (barring any shenanigans) will remain as it is.

For $50 I won’t complain as I didn’t want to go full commit on a new set of leathers when it’ll be my first track day.

Knee sliders are cheap on eBay. I still need to pick up a set of my own, borrowed a set off of my dads suit last time I hit the track lol.

Twistedsocal13 I could be wrong but it looks like that suite has no knee sliders and the right knee is ripped or torn and patched with duct tape. I have never owned a cycle gear branded suite or jacket or even boots but from what I have heard they do not hold up for crap. Again I could be wrong but I hope you don't have to test that theory and if you do I really hope I am wrong. like everyone else said, baby steps, best of luck.

On another note, I went ahead and bought a used suit off of a guy for 50 bucks. Still need proper boots and gloves but at least Iíll somewhat look the part. Also got some stands.

The Mrs is saying Iím impulsive suddenly lol what does she know.

Taking your outside hand off is a piece of cake compared to the inside. When you death grip the bars and get stiff and crossed up it is almost always because of the inside arm.
