Kangaroo hide racing suit

Perhaps this should be under accessories but only racers will know about this.

I live in the Gulf, Bahrain (home to the 5th Fleet).

I will be in Florida in December (all over between Daytona & Miami & in between & Key West).

A year ago I tried to buy Kangaroo hide racing suit at a couple of places around F Lauderdale & the sales people looked at me like I was on drugs! Just had a similar experience in Brisbane, Aus (I swear that kangaroos come from there - I saw them & their smaller cousins like wallaroos etc)!!!!!!!!!!

Does anybody know where I can find a Kangaroo hide racing suit around Florida? I am melting in my full leather suit with no ventilation out here in the desert AND it's so bloody heavy. Need to increase my race comfort & endurance.

Re: Kangaroo hide racing suit

Thanks Dave, i'll get on to them. What's the best way of making sure I get the right size suit if i'm not there to try it on? Maybe have a tailor take my measurements & pass those on?

Re: Kangaroo hide racing suit

Is the kangaroo suit you're looking at a MotoGP suit? If so, do a search over on the WERA board (WERA Motorcycle Roadracing :: Home :: v2007827::154051 ::). Seems there's some issues with those suits not holding up particularly well in crashes...

Re: Kangaroo hide racing suit

Thanks, perhaps stick with the cowhide & save a bunch.

See you did the Kevin Schwantz school - I''m envious! I gather that you would recommend it?
