BMW Rallye 3 sizing question

I've been looking at better quality riding suits and would like to get a Rallye 3. I'm 6'4" with a 36" waist and a 36" inseam and wear a US size 44 XL suit coat. From my reading, it appears that the black/yellow jacket is available in a tall/long size, but do the matching pants also come in a tall size? There's a lot of confusion on sizing for the BMW suits, so I suppose the best thing I could do is try them on. My dealer has a few on the rack, but I'd need to order the tall without trying it on. Any tall guys out there been down this path?

Ron - Isn't 44 LONG, not 44 REG, the size that BMW calls 106? (And the 44 doesn't mean waist size 44" but more nearly 36").

I am not sure what confusion you refer to. There is a sizing table - catalog - page 80-81 on BMW Motorrad website. Under men long sizes you have range 40L = 98 to 50L = 118 for both jackets and pants.
I am 6'4", 44-46 chest, 36 arm, 34 waist, 36 inseam, and I opted for 50L = 118 for both.
Jacket perfect, pants are a little bit generous but suspenders did the trick, extra padding and MX boots fit underneath. You can opt for 114 for more snug fit?
Suite designed in Germany, made in Indonesia, well done but feels kind of flimsy to compare with Motoport Marathon mesh kevlar with quad armor and custom fit.

sorry.....i was getting confused with the Euro longs (talls)

I normally wear a 34/34 pant and have had problems getting the length in an MC pant that has 34 waist. I have two pair of Santiago in a 102 & 106. Either one provides enough length for me but the 102 is a bit more tight in the leg which can have problems if wearing a more MX style boot.

I have the R3 jacket but not the pants, at first I was put off by the Motorrad branding on the inside knee patches but I guess I'm warming up to them now.
