Leathers I can borrow?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to borrow leathers and boots for Autobahn this weekend, June 3-4. I'm about 5'2" and wear size 6.5 shoes (women's, of course).

Please let me know if you have an extra set I'd be able to borrow or if you know anyone who might.

Thanks!

Tina

I like your "plan ahead" ways!

My suggestion for future track days would be www.newenough.com

Good Luck

Hmm... my suggestion is to walk downstairs and find your Dad. Sneak up behind him and smack him in the back of the head. Then proceed to cuss him out for not outfitting you a month ago!

Wish I could help you, but unless rdrash sees this in time, you might be out of luck!

I'm going to be there myself so that's a no go. other wise I'd let you borrow them. And like underdog said go cuss your dad out. All the gear he has for himself and he got nothing for you.

NESBA is Garth. Garth and trailer are at AMA this weekend at Road America. SO... no rentals this weekend.

However, it look slike Mr. Gu has her hooked up with some leathers.

Yee Haw!

Thanks Jon!

I have a suit you can use. I'm 5'8. It mite be a little long but you can use it. They are a little beat up but all the armor is good.

I'm south of Chicago, but I'm leaving for Road America tomorrow first thing in the morning. So if you want them I will be going north on 294 around 9 AM. I also have a pair of size 9 Alpinstars boots that are too small for me, you can use those to if you need them and if they fit.

This is Grasshopper posting, I accidently posted on Rachels log in. OOPS!

Thanks for the offers, everyone. I think I've found a set of leathers and boots that I can borrow that won't be too big on me. (Thanks JonGu and Paul Smith!)

Enjoy the weekend, wherever it may take you

One other offer, we had my wife's 2 piece set for sale a while back and they might fit you. She is 5'2" the pants were a little long, but not so much that they couldn't be altered, then leather jacket as well and the two zip together. So if you are interested PM me and I can get you details on size and stuff.

I'll bring over the other set of leathers I was talking to you about after work tommorow if you want to try em, might actually fit now that I look at the size chart. It's a mens size 38, here is the size chart: http://www.ridegear.com/store/sitepa...ing/Spidi.html. They are only for sale though, no borrowing (cuz they are brand new).
