Tall Motorcycle clothing

Okay, so you guys were actually pretty helpful with my last question, so I have anotherone for the tall Strom riders out there...who's got the gear..?

Other than a few private labels I've found, who carries tall motorcycle jackets/pants etc... Joe Rocket is the only brand I've found that carries tall sizes...

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I have a Frank Thomas jacket that is a 3XL. Not labeled as a tall size but it fits a 6'4", 255lb guy, with a 36 inch sleeve length very well.

I think it is the Sprint waterproof textile model with a zip out liner. Not to hijack this thread, but this is one of the best cold weather jackets I have ever owned. After making it through 30 winters in New England I think I qualify for that comment.

TourMaster has several jackets and pants in simian proportions.

I'm 6'4" and 240lbs and wear Technic gear. fits very well... even though it's not labeled as tall.

Sure thing. FWIW, I think it's a new addition to the site--they've recently updated some functions and I believe this is one of them...

Anyway, I'm happy to help--I know I've learned plenty from this site!

Go with First Gear stuff.

What Joe rocket says is tall sizes is a joke, specially in pants.

6'-5" 250# 38" inseam BTW

Aerostich will custom make stuff, and they carry very nice tall items. I have the AD1 (a Darien overpants style) pants in a 44X36 size that fit well.

The First Gear Kilaminjaro Jacket is a good fit I think in 2 or 3XL tall @ 6'7" 280lbs.
