Honestly its a little much, I felt like an ass at the Ducati Riding Experience in Mugello wearing Ducati Leathers, Helmet, Boots, and Gloves haha

An alternative is the Spidi Dovi Replica suit, on a side note though that Ducati suite was pretty comfortable and built well :-)

Matching (as in colors) is ok, but not with the DUCATI logo everywhere.

I'd agree its a bit overdone....most 'hard core' riders (or just the regular rider guy)would write it off as too flashy, and discount the wearers skill's or motives...skill set aside, all sports have the same scenario...witness the Ski Slopes of the world, BMX, Motocross, Tennis...the list goes on & on.......only over the last few years (well maybe a few more) have sport riders been able to get the real factory look, with the real high end gear (Dainese, AlpineStar, etc etc) all color matched customized and detailed down to bike colors, and now even model specific...

If you look closely at the Ducati site, you'll see you can customize a set of Dainese leathers to go with your bike right on the web site

You would get more respect wearing assless chaps on a SL then wearing all that flashy line of nonsense....

Hahaha this reminds me of a few weeks ago at Mid Ohio.
There was a kid with a R1 and he had a Rossi helmet,Rossi replica suit and Rossi Fiat fairing kit. But hey its his money if thats what he likes then who cares.
But i do agree ....you kinda make yourself look like a tool bag.
Thanks from wfoduck and Chaotic

looks awesome if you are a really fast guy not so much if you are slow.

I find with a Panigale at the track you are already a target.

First perspective testimony: last race season, I unwisely chose #99 as my racing number. I thought, well that's a good lucky number in oriental tradition, and it resonates well with the bike (1199). Some people sniggered and some smiled. I was confused. Then on the first race day it suddenly dawned on me, f-ing JLo.....
Not to mention I missed two races (wet. I don't have the balls) and he only dry race of the day i finished #4, behind three smaller older bikes. Got more sniggers and more consolations.

At least I won three races in the second round, and two 2nd in third round and a DNF (broken chain), finishing 2nd overall. People became a lot more friendly afterwards, and now I'm famous (as "that nut" who raced his $40k bike....local currency of course, not US).

Dressing yourself like a superman does carry a huge pressure. Next time I'll chose #88 or #93 or other obscure number.

^ yeah, 93 sounds like a plan too, or 46. LOL


that's why i don't care too much about the finish of my track fairings, the fanciness of my leathers or the overall setup. rather let the riding speak for it. (which sucks on the 1199 btw)
