come on ppl gimmie your opinions.

let me know what you heard about them.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

I've heard Hotbodies don't fit well(holes don't line up). But I don't have any 1st hand experience.

Q: Do you still miss the 500cc two-strokes?

A: Always, yes.

Ditto,
FYI Sharkskinz are very flexy so they weather crashes well.

Sharkskinz, is what I have too. Bought a used set that were rashed and repaired them, they are easy to repair. Don't have any experience with hotbodies.

If they are plastic they will be lighter than glass but harder to repair in the event of an unscheduled dismount. If your getting a smokin' deal on a used set you should probably just get them. If you're comparing new to new, check out " the dude" at National Fiberglass also.

RRW (www.roadracingworld.com) did a comparo on bodywork not too long ago (check their archives).

As for pricing... shop around. I got a killer deal on my bodywork from Phil Caudill at www.moto-heaven.com... and you can always find used stuff on the various BBS's and eBay.
