One of the reason Larry picture is so good is that he practises in to off season on this road on his way home from work. But as you can see here he is crossing the center line in some pretty blind corners. This is why I let Larry lead he clears the road for the rest of us. I have tried crossing the center line but I don't feel good about it so I don't do it. I'll talk to Larry the next time I see him and maybe I can talk some sences into him.

I'll say it again, this is a perfect picture. Look at it more closely, I think you can tell that the left part of his body or the bike has not crossed the left center line. He is right on the edge of it. Perfect. Also he is not dragging his knee, not even close. On some bike the seat height is lower that others and it is easier to get your knee down. Remember our name is Sport Touring and he is on the perfect bike with all the right gear on, in the perfect riding position. His head is right, his arms, he's off the seat half way to get his knee where it should be. This is the perfect sport touring position. Now lets talk about Ray sitting backwards on the bike in front on him taking the picture dragging his knee to stay in front.

Are you going to trade in your PC800 and up grade to a new NT700V?

Everything about that picture is right. Remove the painted line. Most of the roads we ride on are less traveled and have no painted center line. He is turning left and his tires are in the left tire track right where you want to be. If somebody comes in a heart beat he can widen his turn, he can speed up, he can upright the bike, he can slow down, all this with out even thinking about it. Now if he was going around a right hander and the tires cross the center line he would have to slow down and then sharpen up the turn and that takes time.

I'm considering the same thing Vince.  I am leaning towards a Roadcrafter full suit from Aerostitch.  Maybe we should do a ride to the Rider Warehouse & check them out.  I hear if you go there you get a discount & may even find something on-hand that would work without having to special order.  I'm up for it!!!
I see that the Revit catalogue that they have a lotof stuff. I will go check tham out.
When the weather gets nice again and I have my new bike we'll have to go up and try some on.

I posted this before but I wasn't able to read any of the posts, so here it is again.
I'm tinking of getting a full body riding suit, either leather or textile. If I get leather should I get full leather so I stay a little warmer when it's cooler out. Or get a combo leather textile to stay cool all the time. And if I do this should I get this a little larger so I can put some under clothes on under neath to stay warm on cooler days.
I now a lot of you have an Areostich. If I go with this what should I be looking for here. Why do so many of you like this suit so much?
I don't know for sure when I'm going to get this I mean it took me 42 years of riding before I bought riding boots for the street.
Thanks.
