I saw a mention of Schott cafe racer jackets and I know they are 'in' right now, but I am also considering getting a motorcycle. I can't get this 1961 BMW r69s out of my head. Although I don't know how to ride at the moment and won't be buying such a nice bike for a while, I was thinking of getting a good functional cafe racer style jacket. I looked at Schott, Vanson, and some other brands on the web. I also looked at Wilsons and there are a couple that don't look bad. Does anyone have experience with these brands in terms of real functional use for riding? Obviously I want it to look good too but I don't necessarily want to spend $500+ on a jacket if a Wilsons one will work just fine. Some of the more expensive Wilsons jackets actually look like they are good leather. My computer is overheating right now so I'll finish later. Discuss.
