While the title of this piece often conjures up images of swimsuits, those who are familiar with the world of motorcycling know that the difference between a one-piece motorcycling suit or the combination of the jacket and pants can definitely affect your riding style. It seems like a small consideration, but if you are suiting up to go on one of the longer motorcycling jaunts across the country, choosing your motorcycle suit with care can make a big difference in your comfort and pleasure while you are on the open road.
One of the most inconvenient things where choosing a jacket and pants are concerned is that you must take off your riding boots before you can take off most varieties of riding pants. Most women who choose the jacket and pants combination end up only taking off the jacket when entering a restaurant or getting off the bike for whatever reason. This means that you will be wearing the weight of your armored motorcycle pants throughout your break off the bike. This can get quite fatiguing, and if you are heading out for a night on the town can be a little bit annoying.
If you choose a one-piece suit you will have to remove the entire thing by necessity. This has some advantages as no matter where you are going, if you want to get out of your motorcycle gear you need to take the entire thing off. However, on the other hand it can be a little bit inconvenient if you are simply popping into a diner for a quick bite and don't want to take off your entire motorcycling outfit.
Many expert motorcyclist end up purchasing both a one-piece motorcycle suit as well as the traditional jacket and pants. This allows them greater flexibility to be able to choose their motorcycle gear based on the agenda of the day. If you only have the chance to purchase one however, consider how you will be using your motorcycle and make your decision based on this.
