what do you wear under your leather suit??

just wondering here what people wear under their leather suit when they ride??? do u just throw on a tshirt then the leathers, nothin under the pants?? or you got sum sorta cotton long johns to help soak up the sweat and not stink up the leather that much under the pants??

since i just got my new bike i went out and ordered a good 2 piece suit, just wonderin if im to wear the pants bear on me, or wear sumthin under them, i dont want them to stink up too bad too quick, i figure sumthin under there to soak up sweat wuld be good.

I go with boxers and a tight fitting T. At the track I notice a lott of people wearing frighteningly short swim trunks. Makes sence, you are in leathers all day long, so its nice to wear something so you can take off the leathers between sessions quickly.

Do a search for "How do I wash my leathers in the washing machine" or something along those lines. Its a thread dad (what ever happened to him?) put long time ago about some magical detergent.

I wear the same kind of stuff under my leathers as I do under my Hockey gear. It's called coolmax. It's a long sleeve shirt, and pants that fit like long underwear, but work to keep sweat away from your body, and keep you cool.

You can get it at any sports store. Canadian Tire Probably has it on sale because Hockey season is over.

Hi Babu-

What I wear beneath my leathers depends on where I'm going. Generally speaking, that could be something like thin Capilene garments or even just workout tights and a tee-shirt. The garments are usually tight and form-fitting to allow the leathers to "slide" where needed.

just went out lookin fer clothes fer under my leather, culdn't find the coolmax stuff, they said its gone fer da winter, but went to sport check and found sum great under armor and nike stuff, although its not cheap, but then again wut nike or under armor stuff is.

bought a REALLY tight fitting long sleeved shirt, the thing loox like its a belly button shirt, but when u put it on it stretches to form around u, and i got teh XL one too, dam, as soon as i tried it on, it felt awesom, felt cooler just when i put it on, also bought the same version of the long pants, also very tight fitting, they feel great, will allow leather to slide on it and will whick away moisture great. both the stuff i bought was nike, they had a buy one get teh second half off thing, so i bought both nike, plus they were like 20 bux cheaper than the under armor stuff.

was 49.99 CAD fer the shirt, and same price fer da long pants i believe. this stuff fits great, any shape u are it will stretch and form to it, fits like a wet suit so dam tight, and its nice and silky so leathers will slide on it good
