Man I am gettin pissed. Am I the only skinny tall person that rides sportbikes? I was looking at buying a 2 piece suit but can't find any that will fit me. I am 6'2 and 165lbs. I have a 32 inch waist and 33 inseam for riding pants. the only thing I can find that is long enough I can fit 2 of me in. My current one piece suit is at least 3 sizes to big but its the only thing that would fit with length, have to have it taken apart and custom made. Just curious does anyone else have the same problem? Ok my rants over thanks.

Took me ages to find one to fit and I am only 5'11 and 165lbs, tried on loads and went for a Wolf Kangeroo leather one piece. The one piece suits always seemed to fit easier than the two piece for me.

If I were you I would just get a made to measure suit. Some brands will do it for of the peg prices plus about 10%.

6'1"... 175 lbs... give or take 5lbs. Inseam is 34in.

I can work pretty well with the MotoGP 1-piece Kangaroo suit (size 44 on the tag). It is ever so slightly loose on the waist, but everything else works well.

I always have a hard time finding coats that are tall enough for my torso that don't have an extra 2-6 inches buit into the waist line. Having coats bunch up during a crash because they are too loose around the waste sucks.

I went to Italy and France last week and they had like %40-60 off the prices off some 2 piece suits like alpinestars, bering, arlen ness, clover etc. and did not have my skinny size in any of them. It sucked cause i was excited before the trip to buy a suit and came home empty handed :( well actually bought a helmet for consolation.

+1 A* for skinny people, my pants were too tight for me but getting as I'm losing weight and I wasn't big to begin with. Joe Rocket also seems to fit large, Sidi is tight but not as tight as A*

The greatest MotoGP rider of all times has your same dimensions. That's right Valentino Rossi! So what's your problem?

Do any of you have a manufacturer near you?

Arlen Ness is based not that far from me (in OZ), I went there and they will measure you up and make the suit there and then.

check out a motogp suit. im 6'2" ~215 not real skinny, not real fat... just not in real good shape. my suit is a 46.


the only place mine bothers me is in the crotch, it rides a bit... crushes the goods. :dontknow:
