i was just curious how many of you wear your suits everytime you ride or if you just wear your suits at the track and what not.

i also thought about making this a poll:
Where do you where your suits (meaning race leathers)
o track
o both (track and street)

but didn't know how, if someone could help me out with that aspect.

I only wear my one piece if I am at the track or going riding in the mountains for the day. Otherwise it is just too much trouble to get into and out of.

If you're contemplating getting a suit for everyday riding I can't stress enough buying a 2-piece. 1-piece suits are nice, comfortable, and protective, but just aren't practical for most street riding situations. Everytime I ride with friends and we stop for lunch I hate walking around some resturant with my suit half way hanging off.

i hear ya... i don't ride down the street with out full gear (jacket, helmet, boots, gloves, riding pants). i am just wondering if there is any added protection from a race suit that normal street riding gear doesn't offer and whether it would be practicle to wear a suit in an everyday situation.

I wear my own piece at the track, and anytime I'm going for a dedicated ride on the street (that is, riding without stops). Any other time, I wear my two piece setup.

If I'm just going for a really quick ride to a local destination or to a friend's house to hang out, I'll wear my jacket with textile overpants.

Don't forget your knees on the street. Get some A*'s knee guards. They're inexpensive and easy to put on.

the one time I didn't wear full leathers, I slid down the road 300ft on my head. Road rashed 70% of my back. I wear mine everytime my ass is on the seat. And I live in florida where its hot all the time...
