Back in 2015 I flew to Winnipeg and bought a dump truck that I drove back to home. It was about the same distance and on some of the same roads, atleast the portion from north Bay to Ottawa. It was a long haul through some pretty remote areas. It wasn't the most scenic drive I had been on. Northern Ontario is a VERY large frequently underestimated area.
If I did that haul I would hope that the "good guy" discount and food at the local bbq joint would be decent.

If you do make it west, stop in at the Delta Diner in Delta, Wisconsin. It is worth it. Todd, the owner has a very progressive business style that I appreciate and also is a rider. Monday is the only day they sell hamburgers.

I was there a couple years ago:


I have KLIM, but have never owned a one piece. The concern I have have is the fit in crouch. I have owned too many pants which didn't have enough space when pulled up to be comfortable. When I ride, it feels like a wedgie. I will be interested in hearing how it fits Duane.

I am a buyer of the Klim one piece although, at 5'10" I too am concerned with the length.

Hey Duane,


Just keep your review to yourself. I've spent enough money on stuff for this bike

I’m with you. I have one lightweight Olympia summer mesh suit that kinda fits, but otherwise, I’m long-waisted, and by the time I get enough room in the crotch, I’m usually in a 35” inseam garment, with only a 32” actual inseam, and when I get off the bike my knee pads hang mid-shin.

Most regular one-piece suits, including Aerostich, cut the family jewels in two.

It's the only one-piece I've ever owned, but my Aerostich fits perfectly in all areas and does not restrict me anywhere. If you're wearing denim jeans under the suit that may be the problem, because i find just wearing regular jeans on the bike uncomfortable with or without a one-piece. Unless i'm commuting to work, i always wear pants that stretch (Eddie Bauer, REI, adidas). Much more comfortable and cool on warmer days...
