Okay, I started a new thread based on an old one that was getting off topic. ( http://esport.sportbikes.com/cgi-bin/wwwthreads/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=Ducati&Number=22179&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&part=2&vc=1 ) I asked the question about having my leathers altered. I know *how* they are supposed to fit, and they are really close. They are still a little uncomfortable while standing up, and they are nice and tight in most places and fit good while on the bike. Hopefully I can get something done from one of the custom shops. I had actually looked into those mentioned, Z Custom, Tiger Angel, Vanson, and Barnacle Bills, but 12-1600 bucks was just out of the price range. I feel like I have a well-made suit, especially for the money. We'll see what I can get worked out. Thanks for the heads up though!

If I put what I wanted in this signature, I would piss too many people off.

Race-type leathers that fit correctly WILL be uncomfortable when you stand up. Just watch racers at the track, they all hobble around like hunchbacks.

I agree with BD - Your leathers fit.

Oops - that didn't come out right. I meant that they aren't so big that they are comfortable when I stand. Meaning, they are still uncomfy, so I know they aren't like 3 sizes too big. Anyway, I talked to Barnacle Bills and they will make them fit perfect for $100-$150. Yeah, it's expensive, but that will give me a perfect fitting set of leathers at a price way less than a full custom suit - plus I trust Barnacle Bills to stitch it securely. Some local yahoo could do it, and then have if fall off like an old tear away jersey. We'll see if I can come up wit some loot for this one.
