Sounds like you are all sorted. Awesome!
Such a shame that you are having trouble with your brake line supplier. I hope it gets resolved favourably and promptly when he's back.
I feel your pain with leathers. I'm only a couple of inches off your chest measurement with the same waist, but I'm 6'2" with long legs. I can either smuggle a family of four in the space around my gut when the top is comfortable, or I have to stand very straight, as the first hint of trying to fold up onto the bike feels like I'm being castrated. I had some success with an Ixon one-piece for my first suit. It wasn't too tight around the family jewels when crouched, and I found a leather repair guy at a round of NZ Superbikes that adjusted the midsection so there wasn't so much excess material, so they may be worth a try for you?
There's a couple of guys around that do custom suits from scratch, so with a bit of research you should find a company that works. If you are feeling flush, however, I do know Dainese do a custom fitting service.
Which RST boots did you get?
When are you planning on hitting the track and which track are you going to go to? Make sure to post a write-up of your experience so anyone else that may be contemplating their first track day excursion gets a feel of what to expect. The more we get hooked, the bette r- as they'll put on more track days to cope with increased demand. We all win!
