    Im 6'6 and skinny 190lbs. I need to get leathers. Anyone have any ideas without having to go custom? Anyone have any experience with any custom shops if they went that route? Even If its just the jacket for now I need to find a leather jacket in a tall size.

    damn 190...your a twig. You are probably best off going custom for the best fit. Let us know otherwise what direction you end up going. *pics*

    99 cbr f4. I really don't have any problems with the height. I might be a little easier for shorter people, but I havent really noticed a difference for me...besides the fact that i can touch the ground on inclines having to walk to bike rofl.

    im as tall as you, but only weigh 15 lbs more. if it helps i have the joe rocket alter ego jacket (textile) but the sleeves are actually more than long enough. as is the torso. its a little loose around the torso but its nothing bad.

    I actually have a Firstgear Textile Jacket and it fits fairly well. I want a leather jacket and pants so I can experience the track;) Thanks though!
