Well, I didn't tell you anything - Charly might've (do you guys read the names that are undersigned to the emails?) - the production is going as planned, but keep in mind that we got many orders. If you ordered well enough before the deadline and have not received your order yet, your order will be finished soon. If you ordered on the last few days before the deadline, there is a bottleneck there as there were tons of people thinking the same thing. They'll all be completed, but naturally, if the orders come in at different rates, the orders go out similarly.

the reboot happens when the reboot happens, no real rush or timeframe. We have work to do, we have things we need to prepare for later. I have one thing I might want to bring out beforehand though, kind of as something to nibble on while I prepare the main courses, and taht is a transformer jacket. redface.gif Nothing else can be said about that right now.

I assumed it was you as I sent an email in response to one sent by you on deadline day. Nobody undersigned the reply back today, so I apologise for (logically) assuming it was you

Glad we're on the same wavelength. Kind of expected you to just build a buffer MDR, since the moto style is already exists. But now that I think about it, ToJ riders who already own and love their Moto would be really appreciative of having a functional one they can ride with, steez with, and have adequate protection. I, for one, have been waiting for a black high-speed cowskin leather MDR capable of secret agent mission stuffs. If it has provisions for armor to make it rideable / capable of more secret squirrel shit, then I'm all for it 500%. All of Batman's gear is essentially glorified motorcycle apparel, lol.

You have the Lost World's, the Langlitz's, and Lightning Leathers for the older styles, but they don't offer the same level of impact protection as Dainese/Vanson. Mo-ToJ MDR would fill in the niche for standard/cafe riders beautifully, as these riders are limited in their protective choices. I'm sure if we drop this in the Ducati (SportGT/Monster), Triumph, Cafe Racers, and BMW forums, we'll be finding new customers beyond SF, though it may be slightly hard since ToJ cred has to be rebuilt on each individual forum. But I'm sure that the product will speak for itself and develop a cult following as it does here. It's hard to not be a fan of a company where bang/buck ratio is 1 mirrion. Just gotta be selective, and choose communities where dropping a grand on a jacket isn't gonna put them under poverty levels.

Regarding the sportbike crowd, I was initially gonna say that you don't want that sportbike rider demographic anyway, they tend to balk at paying anything more than $200 for a Joe Rocket Pakistan Leather that does the job, because they know and expect to go down in their gear, and want it to be replaceable.

SF'ers that don't ride, I challenge you to take a MSF class, time willing. Just takes a couple of hours of a weekend or two, and I swear to god, you'll thank me for it. I never thought that I would pick up riding, but once I swung my leg over a bike, I finally "got it". A lot of you are on this forum to increase your steez factor. A lot of you are getting leather jackets because it looks cool. Why not kick it up a notch? Riding will turn you from a Swag Peasant to a Swag Pirate.

Regarding the choice of insertable armor, my #1 pick would be the Forcefield Upgrade Performance Armor. Forcefield Inserts are well-recieved by the riding community (Forcefield Extreme Harness,Type-B Limbs ). Here is an article where they conducted an informal test of D3O (D3O Trauma Test).Otherwise my request would be the armor inserts that come with Dainese Jackets. Let me know if you need me to mail them to you.

I'm really glad that I didn't buy the MDR before the cutoff date. This, like the fox fur DR, is something that I've been waiting for. Dibs on #1 Mo-ToJ MDR. biggrin.gif

Well if you're seriously thinking about production motorcycle gear, the next logical step is tactical gear. Looking forward to my kevlar varsity with an option for trauma plate inserts. (5?)

Scooter people are actually probably the most at risk. Most have them have never taken a safety class and assume that since its a scooter, they can just wear a sun dress. Too bad scooters still go the same speed that most motorcycle accidents occur at.

Also, a lot of scooter people have money to burn and I bet would be willing to get some stylish scooter wear (because the way most moto gear looks makes it ridiculous to wear on a scooter). There the concern really is about abrasion resistance and maybe a little padding so you could do fine with some good leather, skip the back pad, and use some really slim D3O elbow and shoulder pads.

I bet with the right push, a girlfriend DR in a soft enough calf (conditioned/broken in) would probably sell well to a bunch of chicks with vespas.

The blonde girl in community would look totally right on a scooter in the jackets she is always wearing. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

ok, it was the only picture of her in a jacket I could find...but she is always wearing them

I've always toyed with the idea of getting a few folks together to buy some ratted out Elite 80s and ride them around in LA in full racing leathers, revving at every red light.

So what's going on here? What are all these little black lines on my jacket and how the hell do I get rid of them? They almost look like somebody made markings with a sharpie or something, came that way. They're near the shoulder, on the lapel, on one sleeve and there's one at the back too.



Also is there anything I can do to get rid of the dye in the metal parts of the zippers? I asked for silver hardware when I ordered but instead got the gun metal.

Did you try an eraser? A moist cloth?
