Try the Texport at Tech 21. Very comfy and good price. I think our moderator likes his too.

Leather and lace

Love my Spidi's... impressed with the quality, thankfully haven't tested their protection levels and ...

They def. help pull the pit tootsies!!!

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Motor bike shops ? What have I done now ?

The Texport suit is comfy but so are my undies and I wouldnt want to go gravel surfing in them either.
I was impressed with BC's Spidi suit after a number of offs.
The Dianese was a one crash affair and suspect the same will be true of the Texport, Simon Grahams suit looks indistructable at the expence of comfort but its uncomfortable any way you do it. I think its a Crowtree or summat made of Rino hide and could be the way ahead for crashers. Didnt like the look of our mates back after his recent turn two incident, what was he wearing ?

Boycie's leathers

I think he was wearing Alpine Stars. Legend mentioned that he was wearing those. Cheers.

Want the best?

Kushitani. Very good quality. Go custom if you can afford it, that is the stuff made by hand in Japan. Very good quality (uh, not to be redundant or anything....).

Yep he was wearing apline stars

Dont forget he came off at 200 plus clicks going into turn 2. Taking this into account i think they held up well.

They dont look quite so pretty now but have saved Boycie some serious skin grafts etc

Cheers

Fat Arses

Chumley - with all respect mate, this is gonna be difficult. Firstly, you're gonna have to find a Bison (try looking in the Caucasus) and then shoot the protected fucker and then borrow Tug's sewing machine (own up Tug, its yours not the Mrs). Harsh ???

I'm looking too - is that Ozzie fellar still down there? Dave? Can you lead us to some of those Kangaroo leathers - I hear they're quite decent.

BTW - when is the due date for Mrs Chumley?

Later kids

I think I prefer Blade as a name - what about you bastards?

I could organise a very exciting weekend in the scrub with guns, a ute and a few slabs of tinnies if your into catching your own??? Those bastid things hop around a lot compared to a bison though....

If this is in anyway serious, Stets swears by his recently custom made Tiger Angel Leathers. I think they use Himalaysian Ox or something and it might be a bit thick for your weather?? Can design the whole shabang on their website too. Seem cheap enough at <AUS$2000 and their only just up the road from me.

Blade is no good, how about Wayne Kerr??
