well this year i have decided make a change. i purchased a hjc clx 4 helmet and i am getting smith warp goggs. I have recently just ordered a New Fox Targhee suit. the yellow will go awsome with my green and yellow f6.
anybody have this suit or have any thoughts about it. This is my first pair of pants that are not bibbs. I am sure i will notice a difference in that they will not be as warm as bibbs, but more comfortable and more than half the time that i ride, i am too hot anyway. well its gonna be a new look and who new it would be in yellow. Dont worry, i will always ride green so dont even think about it paul. :p hehe

I bet that it looks great against all that green :lol: , but I bet that I would look good in that on my Gade. I haven't been without bibs since I wore a one-piece :crazy: Let us know your thoughts after you get some time in. Inquiring minds want to know!

Looks good, but I bet you spent a pretty penny on that getup! Unless it was a closeout from Denniskirk or somethan.

They look good, but looks like it might me easy to get snow in back of the pants. Just a thougth
thaks for the info,
i thought i got a good deal. through royal they are 160$ cad for the pants and 270$ cad for the jacket. I payed 250$ usd with shipping off of ebay and they are also new. Even with the exchange rate i will still save over 130$ cad. so i firgure it was a good enough deal, to try something different. when i get a few rides in with them i will give a report on wether i did the right thing or not.

I bought the same pants this year and I love them. The suspenders are removable and it has a front zipper pocket that holds a wallet perfectly. I got the black/ grey pants. I bought mine from the yamaha dealership for 149.99. This style of pants are last years model so anyone who is selling them are selling them at closeout prices. The jacket didn't look right in my opinion so I did not get it. My friend bought the same yellow and black pants as yours and he loved them before he burnt a hole in them on the exhaust pipe on his sled, it dosent take much. Anyways I love mine I am "6-1" tall and 180lbs and the XL fit me perfectly, I have ridden 200 miles this winter with them and I have no complaints. Good Choice

Are we going to see a switch to the yellow brand of sled in the future?? :ohmy:
curry, the only way i would switch to yellow is when i have enough money to have both a firecat and a rev. However my first choice is the firecat and a yellow suit will look sweet on my green f6 with the yellow accesories.
one more thought, we need to meet up this year at island lake. maybe take a little run acrossed the lake too? :p
