    One-Piece Motorcycling Suit Worn by Rider in Forum Header Photo?

    I am curious if anyone happens to know the brand and/or model of gear worn by the rider of the big GS pictured in the current forum header photo? I am asking because I am considering purchasing a one-piece riding suit and looking for affordable recommendations. Here is the photo in case it gets replaced:

    Is it an Aerostitch? As far as I know they are the kings of one piece riding suits.

    Doesn't look like the typical coloring for Aerostich's one piece suits...here's a sampling from their page:

    Agreed it's too complex a colour scheme for their gear but I can't think of another brand doing one piece. Custom suit?

    Yeah custom could be a possibility, based on how it coordinates with the helmet. Custom is not in my budget.

    I hear you there but looking at the pic the number of panels in that suit makes me think not Aerostitch but I could be wrong, I'm guessing too complicated for their philosophy of construction. But again I can't think of another manufacturer. If it were me I would definitely be starting with Aerostitch as I know the quality of their goods and I've had a look at their gear. Sometimes you can get good deals on stuff they have in stock, worth getting n touch with them to see what they have.

    Here's a shot of ScarySharkFace on ADV in his one piece Aero, he found it a great piece of kit.

    I think it's a Touratech Companeros Jacket and Pants, but maybe a prior year's offering.
