    That's not really enough money, I've never seen one that wasn't in a shit leather go that low. Also, I think you're getting confused by the measurements. The shoulder seam on RO jackets fits really tight because of where the seam lands; I've never measured mine but I'd be surprised if it was over 17 inches and I normally take 18"+ in jackets.

    benes thats true, 800 for a nice RO is about minimum. i'd say up your budget a bit if you can or look to something else for now. plenty of great leathers around 800, 2nd hand ZB is a nice option that i think would vibe well with your outfits (the minimalist zb high neck jacket)

    Awesome. That is bad ass. I know it's a RO thing, but are you ever tempted to tailor those sleeves just a wee bit. ;)

    Kunk and Moo, when you guys want to get rid of some leathers or RO stuff, give me a holler.
