Try this on for size. To be competitive you need to fill out the crotch area of your leathers very well.

Marquez is a freak of nature!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rider save so many certain spills than him. He has several a weekend. Did you watch the MotoGP race last weekend when Lorenzo dove up the inside forcing Marquez to wobble into the braking zone and yet he saved it and hardly lost momentum? Both those guys on the factory Honda next year will be must see TV!
