Leathers For Tall Rider

Hey guys,
Anyone know of a shop with a decent selection of motorcycle gear around the lapeer or macomb area? I'm looking at getting a new jacket, and I figure I may as well get a set of pants with a full waist zipper in case I decide to try some track time in the future. Problem is none if the local shops have a decent selection, and nothing they have fits (I'm 6'5, 200 lbs).
Any suggestions for shops to try or brands that sell gear in tall sizes would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bigmatt

As far as local shops go, Rec Leisure is probably your best bet even though that's a bit of a haul for you. If you're willing to buy online, you have a few more options. I have and recommend these pants as they come in a tall version:

Edit - sorry, you said leather. New Enough is still probably a good site to check out.

Newenough has a no hassle return policy as well.

Absolutely. Some of the best customer service I've ever dealt with too.

The biggest thing I'm looking for is a set that has the 360 degree zipper. I've read this is a must for most tracks, and if I'm going to invest in a good set I'd like to not have to do it again when I find out just the 8-10" rear zipper doesn't cut it for the track.

Then you need to look at the 2 piece race suits. Most will have that. Just call them if you have a question.
