Ive only been to a 1/2 track day (Evening test and tune so 4 hours with no instruction).

I had a 2 piece as my first suit and and never made it to the track. Sold that and bought a 1 piece because i wanted the extra bit of protection in addition to NOT CARING what other people thought.

Any ride other then an A to B commute the suit gets put on.

i bought the suit!......here is a new one...

Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Leather Suit Black/Magnesium from SportbikeTrackGear.com

i can not stand up all the way (kind of like a cave man) or my balls get squashed...but the riding position is very comfortable...rode back 40 miles on the freeway with the suit on and felt like rossi...lol...

looks like i will be using this exclusively for twisties and canyons if i do not want to be stared at...

I have a one piece suit I bought for my track day last year. This year I just never made it to the track; hopefully next year will be different. I haven't worn the suit since my track day since I don't go pleasure riding on the street. I believe it's unwise to go speeding through twisties, both as far as safety and cops go. There are no cops on the track, so that's where I'll play.

I normally wear a 1piece to commute on 65 miles of freeway each way. No twisties at all, just better protection.

To each his/her own. I'll wear my leather jacket and race boots, but that suit will only be worn on the track. The suit does me no good during this time of the year anyways, and I don't want to have to strip all the way down to change clothes at work. This means more stuff I have to take with me which would take away all the enjoyment of riding.

It's pretty much awkward to stand up straight in a one piece, but it gets easier once it starts breaking in.
