As of this morning I'm down exactly forty pounds since January. Feels good to fit in my leathers again. Is it March yet? Is it March yet? Is it March yet? I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. This is unbearable.
Thanks for asking. After an hour the suit felt broken-in already. The boots and gloves though are so stiff I can't feel any of the controls. I'm slathering them both in Lexol as we speak in an effort to soften them up.
Fortunately everything fits. I did have to return a few items to get to this point - there's a hilarious picture of me in an RST suit where the legs barely make it to my calves and the arms make it about 3/4 of the way to my wrists - but the public really doesn't need to see that.
The boots and gloves are just stiff, as you'd expect from race gear. Thicker leather and armor and all that. The boots were starting to feel a bit more flexible by the end of the day yesterday, so maybe another ride or two and they'll be g2g. The gloves feel like they are going to take forever to soften up. I'll abuse the hell out of them if I have to, if nothing else to teach them a lesson in obedience.
