Track day with no leathers?


Recommended Posts

I'd like to try a track say, mainly to get more used to my bike and cornering etc


I only have textiles though, not leathers (RST RIFT)


Do any tracks let you go on without leathers, or is at always mandatory?

Is it advisable?


Thanks

you must use either a one piece or a two piece with 3/4 zip..not the small zip at the back it must be a 3/4 zip..

Wait till you done though you will raise why you need leathers :3some:

Can't remember mate... I think Phil Gale discovered it while trying to organise one for himself.

have a look in bike chat i have done a thread about track days, its pinned at the top....


but as JTA says 1 piece or full zip round, but after coming off at oulton get a 1 piece....i dont trust the zip to hold it together

As phil has said take nothing to chance i spent an extra £40 getting a stronger zip fastened on my leathers (westgate rd newcastle) when i came off at cadwell i was doing about 100mph and mine survived ok but if you can i would recommend a good <====== good one piece

Losing weight is another option to solve this problem :up:

Good idea bigup!


OKay, but what size, I'm a weird shape (gym lots) ?


48" chest

48" hips

36" waist <- small

18" biceps

29" thighs

5'8" tall, so 30-32" innser leg <-small


so 2 crucial measurements are small, rest are fairly big


My current RST 2 piece is 38" wasted trousers, and thighs JUST fit, and XXL jacket (48-50") . But no way I could put that on when zipped together.
