    Not racing ( unless they start an 'Old Fat Guys on Old Goofy Bikes' class )... I asked on the STT forums, but I though I'd ask here too...

    I'm hoping to get back into the occasion track day this year, and I'm severely out of the loop. My old suit is gone, and my two-piece suit needs replacing ( bunches at the knees and wore through my last trip to Tally 10 years ago ). I have good recent helmet, gloves and boots. I just need to get a good suit without spending more than $1k. What are the good options out there these days for the old fat guys (5'11 250-ish hoping to drop another 10) ? Teknic and Cortech used to be the bang-for-buck choices, but I don't know anymore. Of course with wife, kid, house, cars, and a Bulldog... value is important, if I can get good quality for less all the beter.

    Check the Ridersdiscount now that they are back in business. They had an awesome package deal on RST a little while back.

    Chango The GOAT is my hero.

    I bought a bottom-of-the-barrel 1-piece Alpinestars suit (CR model, I don't know if they even make it anymore) and it is pretty dang good as far as I can tell. I haven't crash tested it yet, but knowing it's a good brand gives me a little more confidence than hoping for the best with some of the eBay specials. I think I paid $400 or so for it, but it's been a few years now.

    The Dainese Assen is a decent suit and is a great value given the brand/quality.

    @Pro Speed Racin Give Kenny a PM and he will hook you up with a custom suit in that price range.

    Another vote for RidersDiscount and the RST suits they have are really good, especially for the $$.
