Extra Leathers?

Does anyone have an extra pair of leathers i could barrow for this weekend size 46? I was going to rent a pair from nesba but if I can save some extra money why not. Thanks

Yeah, no kidding, 4 inches taller and 50 pounds heavier . I've got a jacket that will probably work, but no pants. Not sure on the size of the jacket. Beat up, but passes tech.

I've got a set of 2 piece Joe Rocket leathers, I'm 5'11 and 235lb and they are just a tiny bit tight on me, should fit you just fine. They are BEAT pretty badly though and has a few holes and rips in them.

No brakes going into Turn 4 at Putnam Park on cold tires in the first session of the morning is a BAD idea!

will they pass tech? I wear a 42-44 jacket but I go up in size to accomodate my tree trunks.

Well, NESBA doesn't tech your gear ever, unless they see something obviously wrong like that you aren't wearing suit that zips together. And hell, they are in 10x better shape than the leathers that AdrenalinJunkie was wearing last time I saw him

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Well, actually, they do tech the gear. It is just less formal of a process. AdrenalinJunkie has been told he can't wear that set on the track anymore, and he has replacement suit on order. In the meantime, he will be wearing another one of my suits (hopefully he'll take better care of this one) LOL!!!

However, be it known, that he never crashed in B group, and he hasn't crashed in A group. It is that I group that got him more than once.

I got a 1 piece, and 2 piece at that price ... and you know about the gloves ...

My fiancee would not like that too much or else I already would have.
