Riding Gear

I'm on the hunt for riding gear to protect this old bag of bones. I have surfed the net, and found all kinds of interesting, flashy and fancy gear, but I thought I would ask some suggestions from the UHE group. Pretty much the only issue I have, is that Im 6'6" tall, and pushing 290lbs (not sure how many stones that is, but it must be alot).

Any suggestions on what we call "fat guy friendly" gear, would be much appreciated. Im looking for a roost protector, elbow and knee pads.

Thanx in advance..

DIRTY

Thanx for the help guys,

Husaberg actually makes riding pants big enuff, so I bought a pair from the dealer I have been talking to.

And I actually found a great set up that fit, right off the shelf for body armour...

Six-In-One


And a great pair of knee pads, that come in a longer version



So now I am good to go......
