Are leather suits a good idea for beginners? Are they one time use or can they take a fair bit of punishment. If your suit becomes too damaged in an accident, can it be claimed on insurance? I realise it all depends on the quality of the suit, but I am looking at getting one of the better quality ones, with the mindset that I would rather spend the money on good quality gear that will last, and provide better protection than something cheaper. Looking at the prices of good jackets, and pants, it seems like a better idea to just get a two piece suit. http://www.mcas.com.au/_product.php?section=1&prodid=11761 I am considering a suit like this. Would I be right assuming this would be all I needed for a few years (with the exception of say a pair of riding jeans)? Would it be suitable for summer and winter (with some winter gear underneath)? Wet weather with a waterproof suit over the top? Im not asking for specific information on this exact suit, but on any medium/high quality suit in general. My bike will be my sole method of transportation. Sorry for the question spam im just looking for some info before I fork out all that money.
