Knee slider velcro

I have a 2 piece leather suit with no sliders, and I'm heading to the track this year.

Are these a good option, or should I have the slider patches sewn on? I'm sure I won't need the sliders on my first track day, but, who knows?

If you do recommend sewing them on, does anybody know someone locally (northern IL/southern WI) who would be a good choice?

Also, I think my pants may be a bit too long, can these be altered, or would it be too much $$$?

If you're jsut starting out and you don't think you'll be hauling ass big time, you might want ot not waste the money, then get a new suit next season.

I takes a lot of riders 5 or 6 trackdays before they are going fast enough and getting far enough off the bike to drag their knee. A few riders never even get there... it faster than their willing to go.

I thought about that, too. If I end up being pretty good, or really enjoy it, I would probably then buy a 1 piece (custom).
I still would want the jacket for street, so I'm not really out much.

On the other hand, if I am doing great, I don't want to be hindered from progress by not having the proper gear, 'ya know?

I just emailed Barnacle Bill, I guess I'll see what he says about a price to alter them.
