I want to get some pants to ride in but im not really seeing something that i think is going to work for me. I am imagining that i am going to have to get a custom one peice when the time comes as well. am i wrong?
I have a size problem too, only I'm looking for SMALL gear. There are lots of size charts on the internet and I have found the manufacturers to be very helpful when I contact them with questions like yours.
My b/f got a smoking deal on a 2 piece at one of our local shops. 38 pants and 50 something jacket. First Gear. Keep looking, you shouldn't have a problem at all IMO.
First Gear makes leathers for tall guys. I'm the same dimensions and before I got my custom stuff I used the First Gear S-Pilot and Flightline pants for 2 years without any issue. Quality is good enough, it's not Vanson or anything, but it gets the job done. I wrecked with the jacket and it held up real well.
My bf is 6'3" and about 180. He wears a size 34x34 jeans. He bought the Gericke Tribal jacket and Samurai pants for track days. They make their jackets in "tall" sizes. I think he got the 40 or 42 tall jacket and the 34 pants.
It was just over $400 for the suit. Rusty was real helpful, and he even had to send the jacket back for an exchange in size... no problems... The pants shouldn't be too short... especially if you're wearing a race style boot with them. He also bought the Oxtar boots from this site for $99.
I found some fieldsheer gear for about 75 for the leather pants. I think i may try them and then upgrade in the future if i decide to get into track riding. I'm sure that i want to but I have to find out if my work schedule will allow me to be home this year
