Is kinda low on the leg isn't it? Shaped a little strange also. Anymore pics showing who makes that suit. Can't really make out the wording on the the back, but judging by the 929 on the leg it may be custom.

This makes me so happy. I love love love drivers who pull to the side to let me pass (and I always wave). They don't have to, I'm under no illusion that I own the road, but it's such a nice, welcome courtesy when a driver recognizes that while they are just transporting themselves from point A to point B, we merry riders are out trying to have ourselves a fun day.

I have to ask, is that aluminum tank on the rear rack an extra fuel tank? Looks like there a hose leaving it on the right rear corner?
Edit: Guess it is. Google shows this link: http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/index.php?topic=4553.0
