    Motorcycle Jacket

    I am looking at buying a motorcycle jacket, and I know leather really cuts the wind down. Where is a good online site to buy from?

    Also do any of you prefer fabric jackets over leather? Pros/Cons?

    Re: Motorcycle Jacket

    Go to a dealer and try on everyone they have, pick one you like and find it online. What kind of riding do you do? Do you want warmth or ventilation or both. Joe Rocket and Tecnik make great fabric models. Do you want body armor (yes you do)?

    You need a jacket for when you are on your HOG and need to go into a controlled slide?

    Leaning towards a leather one with armor.

    Re: Motorcycle Jacket

    Alpinestars and First Gear are my 2 choices. Aggree with going to a dealer and trying them on. Go to all the dealers and even alot of Indy's have them in the area.

    Re: Motorcycle Jacket

    Anything over 80 and leather is too hot for me. I have a Joe Rocket that I can take the liner out of and works pretty well. It has armor.
