Well Rick's progress report. And I'm screaming [email protected]#@$#$%^

When I started whipping myself into shape 1 and 1/2 years ago I was a out of shape 183lbs, now I'm 150lbs and in what I call reasonable shape. A year and half ago I had 35.25 inch waist line, January of this year it measured 32 inch, so I bought new leathers. Feburary the wifey insists I do the South Beach Diet with her because she has no will power and misery loves company, guess what my waist measurement is now? 30 inches!!!!! [email protected]@##$ now I have to search the internet for a smokin deal on leather [email protected]@#$#$%

Jeff you looking into Sved? or someone else? I'm thinking a two piece with full zipper and perforated, but I'm going to get into Sport-touring big time, so the one piece isn't really practical for that.

Probably almost that. Little over an hour of work at around $45 an hour or so.

I own a 2 piece Syed suit and it is not practical either. Good luck taking that 2 piece apart in a restaraunt while everyone watches the show..entertaining for sure. Getting it back together is even more fun. The suit is just too heavy duty to take apart and put back together easily.

Don't get me wrong, it is a great suit and I love it...but I only use it for track days because it is almost impossible to get that waist zipper zipped up while you have the pants on. If I would have known that ahead of time, I would have just gotten a 1 piece.

Is that actual 30" or 30 on the back of your pants? I am a 33 but my waist measures out at 38" or something ...... I thought clothing manufacturers only did such things for women. BTW .... my progress is going the other way. I am up from a 31 waist since I quit smoking

RickC,

Congrats! But I can't believe you would be in such shape without pukin' after each meal. Who would've guessed?

"For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard..."

The first turn is the worst turn, between the left ear and the right one.

Brian, Diane did the official measure, it's 30" But after the amazing coconut chicken curry I made tonight, it feels like a 31" waist
