If so please give me your weight and brand of leathers and size.

I am 6'4" tall and usually hover at 226 pounds.

Wear a 44L suit jacket and off the rack leathers aren't looking to good. I have a reach in my arms thats 2" more then my height.???

I have thought about them also, I met a really nice and great rider at The Gap last year who had a custom SYED suit fully perforated and riding a beautiful Triumph Daytona. He was very happy with it and spoke very highly about them also.

With your size, you will have a difficult time finding anything off the shelf that fits properly. I to am 6'4" 200 lbs. I have been through tons of leathers and finding a proper fit is almost impossible. The pants are to short in the legs if they fit in the waist (34 in waist).

I purchased a Taichi one piece suit in size 44 and they were wearable but was to short through the torso. I took them to our local Russian leather taylor and he lengthened the torso by two inches and they now fit perfectly. Unless I get back on the crashing wagon, I think they will last me as long as I ride.

I'd suggest you go to a big shop where you can try on many different suits. My just find something that fits. I may nention, I took one of my friends to Cycle Gear who is just over 6' tall and 270 lbs. He came away with a two piece Frank Thomas leathers and the fit him pretty dang well.

In the same boat here. Any recommendations on where to get custom suits? Looking for a 1-piece or 2-piece so I can start doing track time.

I am 6'4" 200lbs and 34 inch waist. I just purchased a RS Taichi GP-X 207 suit from my local dealer. it fits me nicely. I will eventually have to get the cuffs extended by an inch or two. as they just touch the end of my A* GP pro gloves. But everywhere else just fits perfectly.

I wish I was only 6'4 I had a hell of a time finding leather pants that would go below the knees LOL!
I found a pair that are plenty long enough but the knee pucks are kinda high about 2" which I have to take
localaly to have them altered.... 6'7@245 37.5 length dress shirt! isnt fun when buying clothes or riding gear
and some say wow it must be great being tall.. WRONG!

Oh yeah I am so tired of the "man, it must be great being tall"
Hell, I have a hard time finding stuff for my height and build. I couldn't imagine finding clothes if I was taller...........:banghead:

I know this thread is old, but I ran into Greenbean a few weeks ago and he said he sold his Busa a few months back. Just incase anyone wondered.

He's one of the nicest guys you'll ever ride with.
