i hope this is the right section.

i went to the twisties this past sunday and wore my leathers. its a one-peice HRC suit. its used and already broken in. but when i wore them....i dunno. it didnt feel the same. i felt safer. but i felt i wasnt riding like i normally can. usually i can get pretty low in the corners and keep a good speed without pushing it. but when i had the one-peice on, damn i dunno. i guess what im tryin to say is that it feels weird. is this normal? i hope not so by the time i get to the track. like, it felt like i couldnt get my body position right. i pretty much just stopped riding yesterday. i just parked and chilled. i didnt want to get pissed at myself and went down. my friends also said that it could be because of my tires being squared off because of all the city riding we do. but i dont think its because of that. i think its because of the suit.

it you will get so used to the suit that you wont ride without your
leathers it will feel very akward if you do

The first time I wore my 1 pc on the bike my jaws just dropped. I could not believe just how easy it was to hang off (butt slides off the seat with no effort). It felt like I was butt naked yet at the same time feeling well protected all around.

Another thing I noticed was the extra padding on the bottom buttocks made riding on the RR's plank seat tolerable for hours.

There is nothing like a 1 pc suit. 1 pc and 2 pc suits is like night and day. Can't really compare the two.

yea, as soon as i put it on and got on my bike, i felt like a trackstar. haha. i felt really really safe. it felt very good too. and youre right, i can slide off easier. but... like i said, i cant put my figner on it. it felt wierd going around the twisties at the same time it felt good. i felt that my body position is all whack with the suit. it felt very awkward.

no not restrictive. just i felt like my body position was all effed up. naturally you would think it would make it easier for you to lean more and set your mindframe at ease. but for me, it felt like i took a step backwards. i couldnt lean as much. it almost seems i forgot my body position, not that mine is perfect, but i think its okay. but with the suit, it doesnt feel that way.

If you are wearing a nice tight fitting suit, I can see where you feel restricted. In some ways you are, especially if you only wore a Jacket and like Jeans or something. You'll get used to it man. Just keep wearing it, and you'll be fine. IMO, its a good thing that you feel funny wearing it, just goes to show you notice the "feel" of things.

true. thanks. but is not tight at all. feels good. if anything, it may be just like a half inch too big. but its def already worn in. i bought it used. and the guy i got it from bought it used too.

When I forst starting riding in a suit it felt really weird too. Just not natural. But after riing for a couple years with leathers I feel the same if I go for a cruise in just jeans and a jacket. You'll get used to it
