I'm 6'4" 200lbs, 33 inch waist. Looking for leathers that will fit me. Looking for maximum protection. (Elbow, shoulders, back and maybe even chest armour) Tall Riders, please post the gear you're wearing. I like the Icon Timax 2 but I'm not sure the length would be long enough.

Kobe Dragon two piece with an added 360 zipper.

They've smacked the ground and done very well, I tested them for you.

I'm 6'3" and long waisted. Pretty round too. My jacket is a 54 and pants a 44.

Everyone will have different results but mine are actually comfortable.

I'm 6'5" and currently 245 trying to get down to 225. 38 inch waste and I wear an XL in t-shirts.

I have a Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 XL Tall for the summer and a Joe Rocket Sonic 2.0 XL Tall for winter also. I like the Joe Rocket stuff because they do have the Tall sizes.

I recently started checking into one piece suits and it looks like I'm going custom. Nothing in manufacture sizes come even close to me. I must be a freak of nature!

I was your weight at the beginning of the year then. 285 which is the heaviest I have ever been. I've been dieting mostly with occasional exercise and I'm loosing about 2 pounds a week. I'm going to start on the HCG diet August first which should allow me to drop about a pound a day and fast forward to my goal weight.

I know it's tough but stick in there man. You'll feel a lot better after getting to a good weight; I know I sure did!

I'm 6' 3" running about 205 to 210 lbs and the Joe Rocket talls are great. Heck I think the jack is almost a little big which is very rare. Size 48 Tall.

Technic pants with the shorter length hidden by Sidi boots :thumbsup:

oh i can lose it... I use to fight (MMA) and last year i was 6'7'' 265 and decided to bulk up (power lifting) i got up to 300 lbs in 2 months...

once i stopped fighting i had to lose more weight, so i dropped 25 lbs in 3 weeks with 2 a days (going to gym 2 times a day for 7 days a week, cardio and weights in the morning and 2 hours of cardio at night)...

Ill get back down ;) work has been a little crazy, but im starting to go to the gym at lunch and after work. give me a few months and ill be about 240-250. then i can get a one piece suit :p

6'2", 200 lbs, waist 33-34 here. I wear Dainese.....don't worry about length on jackets, the shorter the better. Most of my Dainese full-protection barely reach my belt, but they're not across my stomach either, just above the belt. Matched with a pair of Dainese pants, they'll zip together fine....and be snug. I wear a 52eu/42us jacket/pant and it's a nice, SAFE, snug fit. The pants could be about a half-size smaller, but NO BIG. My Winter season fit is a 54eu/44eu Dainese jacket/pant. More room to pull on long-underwear.

I also wear a Fieldsheer one-piece in XL (should have bought just the L) during the Winter that makes sub-zero(windchill) very toasty..... :oldcool: The one-piece kicks serious butt out there....don't knock it until you try it..... :super:

Tilt Customs

Custom leathers that wont brake the bank. I know a couple people that have them, one of them went down and his tilt 2 piece save him some pain.
