RS-Taichi

Does anyone here have any previous or current use of RS-Taichi products? Looking into the Viper EVO jacket and have only found one online retailer. Any places you guys/gals know of?

Re: RS-Taichi

The places Hammer mentioned do carry them. HondaGal got an RS Taichi from kneedraggers. They allowed her to exchange to try out a different size without paying a restocking fee. It's a nice suit.

Re: RS-Taichi

Don't have any places to recommend, but RS Taichi makes excellent products and their suit I had was one of the best I ever owned.

Re: RS-Taichi

Anyone heard of Motoliberty.com located in Dallas, TX? They have an unreal price on the jacket, $299 and retail is like $450.

I have seen nothing but good things said about Motoliberty on numerous Texas-based m/c message boards.

I am/was looking for this same jacket. On RS's website, they list several shops in SoCal. I called them all, and nobody stocks them, they're all special order. Since sizing is usually all over the place on most things, it's hard for me to buy before I try. Good luck and let me know if you pick one up.

I hear ya on that one. I've heard their sizing is kind of goofy, so I'm a bit apprehensive on ordering one. My luck it'll be the wrong size and then have to wait longer to get the right size. I hate buying without trying.

{edit} My dilemma is finding a perforated/well vented leather jacket that has a full circumfrance zipper to attach to pants to make a 2-piece.

Re: RS-Taichi

For the money, you may be better off getting one custom made through Barnicle Bill's.

I bought some Dainese pants from them. I had bought a pair of slightly used Dainese pants off Ebay and they were too big. Motoliberty offered a trade in for me $50 less than I paid and discounted the new ones. I didnt even ask them for a trade. I dealt with Audry

Yes, their gloves were some of the best I have owned..best meaning most comfy and very well constructed - good solid stuff. I still have the pair I bought in '01 (albeit 3 years of non-use ) but they wear very well and I cannot say enough positive about em.

Never crashed in them - but if I did, I think i could wear them again.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
