I'm jealous, that thing is bad! :rock

Did you just pick it up?
Thanks..picked it up last year. Wore that thing out all season and it still looks and feels brand new. You get what you pay for..

I love your suit but I wanted 2 piece for convenience.

I have the White GMX Jacket and wanted to get some matching pants but none of them look like they really match the jacket. Any suggestions guys? Anyone made a 2pc with the White jacket? pics if you have, Cheers.

Yeah, I debated getting the same 2-piece for the same reason, but a number of people steered me toward a 1-piece for the track. I'd still really like to have it though, just to feed my gear addiction. :lol

I'm thinking about buying these Taichi pants to make a 2-piece out of. I don't think I need the sliders because I really don't intend to ever drag knee on the street. Sliders look silly off the track IMO.

Yes, there are some new GMX pants that are partially white. I wouldn't wan't all white ones anyway, they'd just get dirty and look like hell. I like these because there is enough white to complete the look, but plenty of black to contrast it and make it look cleaner than it is, lol.

Yep, i saw these and they will probably be the ones i end up going with but that jacket is real white man. I almost wish i had gon for the black and red instead but that would have ment three black jackets in my collection and i felt tha was too much lol. I may just end up wearing it with my Sartso kevlars as i'm thinking that its so long in the torso, it may look weird connected to a pair of pants. It just seems to be slightly longer than all of my other jackets.

Cool man, if you go with the Taichi you won't regret it. Either the 303 or the 207, both are awesome but if the 48/58 ends up fitting snug the 207 comes in a 50/60. I was right on the edge, so you might try both to get the perfect fit.

This is the 207 just for comparison:



Went riding today in my Taichi jacket and damn that things flows air! It was high 60s and sunny but I was actually kinda cold. Taichi leather flows just like mesh and thats no exaggeration!
