    I recently picked up an unused, original BMW Rallye jacket/pants with the CE armor (I least that's what I believe it is--had a pr #230505). It didn't, however, have any of the liners. Any idea where I could get these or would the Rallye 2 liners work?

    Appreciate the assistance!

    I would contact one of the larger BMW shops. The larger one's have a BMW certified apparel person who would be able to give the the proper BMW part number to help you in your quest.

    The Rallye 2 liners will work but I'm not sure if the will zip in properly which wouldn't matter to me. I've had a R2P many years and usually don't zip the liner to the jacket anyway. I find it a waste of time..

    If I woke up tomorrow and my liner was gone, I'd get a good fitting light weight gortex jacket and use it with and without the jacket...

    I found a set of Olympia X Moto liners, wind/waterproof plus thermal jacket liners and wind/waterproof pant liners, that I wear under my Santiago jacket and pants. (Call me a cross dresser.) $50 for two jacket liners and the pants liner. BMW liners seem to be worth their weight in gold, at least as far as asking prices go.

    The Olympias work for me, the jacket liner is even a presentable piece to wear alone when off the bike.

    Just my $0.02.

    Flea market and Ebay seem to have RP2 liners for sale frequently.

    Thanks everyone for responses. Took it to the local BMW shop here in SD and they were able to help out. I decided against ordering any liners unless they pop up on ebay or look for another brand. However, did order all new knee, hip, elbow, and shoulder armor for just under $100 total. We test fit the newer Rallye armor and it fit without any problem. New stuff is a bit lighter and thinner, but is supposed to offer better protection due to the materials.

    I'll post some part numbers when everything gets in next week. Been commuting with the pants and they work great.
