Which leathers?

My wife got me a set of leathers for my b'day yesterday. I am leaning towards a mid level a/star, I think. I am usure of a one or two piece. Any thoughts? Thanks

Depends on what type of riding you do mostly. Do you go cruise then go to breakfast, walk around etc.. Or do you go ride then just cruise home. Track days?? I have a one piece astars and love it.

if you do mostly street riding and the odd track day than I say go for the two piece.

two pieces are alot more comfortable. the level of protection they provide are nearly on par with a one piece.. plus there is the convenience of being able to zip off the jacket.

I say go for the A*s two piece

Man, I was trying to fit a suit using a* sizing char. I need a combination of 44, 48, and 52! My buddy is an "off the rack" type of guy...I hate him! There is a place near here that does custom one off's..may try them.

If you have the money have a custom suit made by Syed in Florida.
