Gear help.

Just a matter of opinion i suppose, but i started riding just this past year, the bike i bought was a ninja zx6r, and it came jetted, and with 2 joe rocket jackets and 2 helmets. my girlfriend recently bought me a pair of joe rocket gloves. now my question is, should i go with a one piece suit, or just buy pants to match the jacket i already have. its very comfortable. but will a one piece be more safe?

If it's leather jackets that have zippers to zip pants to them I would just get the pants. 1-piece suits are a pain in the a** for a casual rider. Only good use for them is the track really. I have one and it gets old when I just ride around here with it. Stopping to eat would be better with a two piece.

I personally have a sort of 2 piece suit. It's not matching, but I've got an A* jacket that I ride in, and some Joe Rocket overpants to go with it. For casual riding, the overpants are quite convenient, just throw em on over whatever you have going.

1 piece suits look nice, but like the other said, seem like a pain in the a** for anything other than track riding.

If you are taller than average, like me. It can be hard to find a one piece suit that fits right.
Stick with two piece for the street.
