Contact the vendors on here I know both Disco from Cycle Sector, and Jason from Sport Bike Track Gear have entry level priced gear. But also check with the organization you are doing the track day with, most will rent you gear at a good price.

Disco was selling alpinestars sp- 1 suit for ridiculously cheap. it is
Something like $899 msrp and he was selling them for MUCH lower. I don't wan to post his price though. Just PM him and see if he still has any.

Cycle Gear also has some good stuff if you're on a budget.

What date are you planning to go? I'm shooting to go on the June 18/19 weekend with the FSB peeps.

Best to go try on several brands (Cycle Gear maybe...) to determine the size for each brand, especially if you end up buying online. You need to know what fits you best (most comfortable). Needs to fit snug, not skin tight.

Also, try on back protectors when trying on leathers to ensure they fit together. Now-a-days more & more riders are wearing chest protectors as well, so you may want to considering trying all on to ensure leathers fit comfortably & properly.

I had good luck with Cycle Gear. I tried on some suits to get my size so that I could buy something used. I was honest with the sales guy in that I probably wouldn't buy one.

They had some awesome sale on an Astars trigger suit and the guy talked me into it. The suit ended up being just a bit more than I was going to get a used suit for anyways. I think I ended up paying around $550. can't really beat that for a decent brand new suit IMO. They also had a bunch of clearance stuff for cheap (Dianese, Astars all in that price range).

I've had some luck on ebay with used gear. If not, craigslist has a good list of used items if you're in a moto populated area.
