I have:As for Dainese, which ones have you owned? Bora V1 is what I hear great things about. Holds up in spills, great protection and air flow. Considering one of those, myself..
Not really keen on the MV leathers, not quite as stylish as their actual bikes...and not a fan of the MV logo all over my body....the bike is enough ...and I want perfarated leather as well.777 said:*tangent: Ordered a MV 1piece (in black) from MV Special Parts. The suit came in last week and I thought the quality was excellent. Unfortunately they sent the wrong size and im waiting for my correct suit. Pricey but to me it looks worth it after finally seeing it in the flesh. I really liked how it had something that resembled pucks on the elbows in addition to the elbow armor. Not to mention the MV brand all over and a huge MV logo on the back. Something to consider (you probably already have).
you've been hanging around Ducati guys too much, they're gonna laugh at ya arent they!Velocemoto said:Not really keen on the MV leathers, not quite as stylish as their actual bikes...and not a fan of the MV logo all over my body....the bike is enough ...and I want perfarated leather as well.
I just won a set of RG3's on Ebay, so the suit will have to wait a while :laughing: :conveyer:
My Spidi suit can do another year.
i highly recommend z. they worked perfectly during my high-speed get-off at willow springs (turn 1 - ouch!). they were able to repair the suit and i still use it today.odonata said:Have you considered custom suits from a reputable local maker? Although the Dainese suits have served me well, the fit is just not 100% perfect, so I have been wondering what it will be like to have a suit that the cuffs are the right size for my wrist and ankel, the knee and elbow armors are in just the right place and no hot spots from extra material etc... so I think I will try Z leathers ( http://www.zcustom.com/ ) for my next suit, I have heard great things about their product and I have also been to their shop, their suits are very well made and looks much better in person; FYI their site is hopelessly outdated. their standard suit designs doesn't do a thing for me, so for sure I will make my own design, or maybe a copy of one of Dainese's design like the Talos IV ... the newer Bora and Sukhoi are a bit too "busy" for me.
Thanks, yeah... my brother has a set from them too.i highly recommend z. they worked perfectly during my high-speed get-off at willow springs (turn 1 - ouch!). they were able to repair the suit and i still use it today.

I dont get this ??...they're gonna laugh at who, and why ??
Good leathers with good protection at a reasonable price float my boat...
I'll leave the "showpony, overpriced, look what I ride items" to you :stickpoke J/K
Will do Alvin.. :naughty:Get the before and after videos of the RG3 sound for us!
hehe....My so called Ducati friends already call me "hollywood" because of the Carboned up MV and my full race suit....the full MV leathers would tip them over the edge... :laughing:Rockethouse said:No use trying to hide it, we know your so concerned about the barbs and taunts from your "so called" Ducati riding friends about sporting the MV logo that this could be the only possible reason for not wanting to wear those god awful leathers.
Yeah, it's always a hard choice....I thought that new AS suit was kinda restrained for them, and it was perferrated as well which is what i need for the track..., that's what drew me to it....and yes, the Black MY suit is much nicer than the red.My Alpinestars 1pc has "Alpinestars" all over it. Every suit has writing all over it. Im proud to promote the MV brand. Saving money and MV dont go in the same sentance. I wouldnt buy the suit if it wasnt top quality, nor would MV SP sell it if it wasnt. To each their own. Just offering my opinion on it. A* are good suits too.
For the record, I think the red MV suit looks like ass, the black is the one I like
