That jacket is perfect.

Why would SS brake lines solve that issue? They'll still have issues if you get air in the lines. What happened?

These days? Softtail Slim. It's one of the big twins, 102 ci engine. Great bike, and rides like a dream.

Have you named that bike 'Hulk' as yet?

No I have air in the SS lines. Admittedly I didn't keep up on brake fluid like I should have before but my brakes still worked with the stock lines. Vacuum/pressure bleeder is coming tonight though so I should be able to knock it out.

Thanks bruh bruh.

Nah. In fact, I pulled the armor from my Johnson Leathers black leather jacket because the jacket itself was more comfortable off the bike than on.

I might invest in one of those Knox armored shirts tho.

I bought my RSD Ronin jacket used, and it looks in great shape except one of the wrists is a bit worn/discolored.  Anything anyone can recommend to fix it?  I had a leather jacket once that started having those problems, and I took it to a leather cleaner, but I rather not spend $50+ to clean up a motorcycle jacket.
 

I can try to take a picture and post it.

Anyone have any recommendations for riding jeans?

I've started riding the highway etc a bit and while thick denim is *fine* for local shenanigans, I'd rather have good ole protection when I ride faster. Already have boots, gloves, armored jacket, and gloves.

 

The pants I have already look a bit silly off the bike and they're big on me (they were free) so I don't wear them much. If they were jeans I'd probably end up wearing them around a bunch.

If you had a medical syringe and some tubing, you probably could have pushed the brake fluid through the lines at the brake itself and worked the fluid out of the lines.

 

Let me know how the pressure bleeder works out. Mine are great so far, but I probably should bleed them sometime this summer since I didn't do that after installing the gsxr forks.

I have a pair of eSquads that seem okay, but honestly I never really wore them (needed to hem them and never did). My Saints are pricey as fuck, but are amazing. No armor though.

Otherwise, I think Dainese and Rev'It make jeans that don't look like shitty baggy pieces of crap. Other than that, no idea.

Rode at night earlier today for the first time on a route I've done a billion times. Had just installed a new bulb (osram night breaker) and it was decent. I don't expect to do a ton of night riding, though I do like it, but if I did I'd probably consider getting something even brighter. Still considering getting a relay. I'd go to a crazy LED/HID setup done right if I was commuting at night. I just feel like I don't have enough throw and spread of the low beam.

I went the kevlar riding jeans route a bit too early and regretted it. Fit wasn't great (STF is a terrible idea) and it wore really warm.

Now you have options like UglyBros and Saint.

I personally wear 21oz denim with forcefield limb tubes underneath when I'm doing my highway riding.

Checking Craig's for used motorcycles. Them fuckers selling their Harley's are insane. Six year old, prior model, 34k miles for sale 2k under brand new and redesigned. That's just one example. Harley owners seem to have never heard of depreciation it seems.
