Not as warm as non-perf'd...then again, I am a chickenshit..I freeze when it gets below 65 degrees...I just got my electric long sleeved vest for my 10...to wear under my non-perf'd Dainese two piece leathers...

Have you tried on Spidi stuff? They're good for tall lanky kinda blokes.

Otherwise feel free to buy some good ole Aussie product! www.tigerangel.com.au freakin great leathers!

65, that's winter temps I suppose...Nice. I was riding my 99 ZX9R at 33 degrees, @140km/h my bike just died, carbs froze from the windchill (feburary). Best part was passing SUV's, people inside looking at you like your FN Nutz, while their wearing fleece and sippin a Latte.

Best shit for cool weather is the textiles, First Gear is awesome, wore it at 200km/h just as it was starting to snow in Vancouver...Warm as Toast. :eek:ccasion1

I had the same thing happen on my 98 ZX9 once. I was out in ID riding in the teens. Had to stop for a little bit to let the engine heat thaw them out.:badteeth:
