    LOL!
    I have thrown away many solicitations from them. I do not like their politics. I wish they were more neutral on things, but they are clearly not. I'm not quite of age yet anyway, but still get the offers.

    Is this on the level??
    I may be nuts but it makes a lot of sense to me. If it could be done sensibly and comfortably I'd very seriously consider it, though I agree I wouldn't want it to be mandatory. Not rubber obviously, some sort of breathable fabric that would fit like overalls. It could probably be less bulky than my aerostitch and more effective in protecting against ground impact injuries. I'll bet the racers would go for it too.

    Thanks for posting that Visian. Shows you how up-to-date I am. That suit looks a little bulky but you know improvemts will come in time, along with lower prices.

    Strange, I always thought they represented the racing crowd, so I let my membership lapse.
