Please post what you ride in - it would be great to get some inspiration with regards to jackets, pants, helmets, gloves and everything else you wear when riding a motorcycle!

I'll kick it off by posting my new Vanson Model B jacket - quite some difference compared to the goatskin G-1 I used to wear until now.

I usually ride in "technical" gear such as Klim or RevIt. I do have some leather jackets from Fox Creek which I really like and a Vanson perforated that I sometimes use but protection, not style is what I focus on when riding.

Pretty much what I wear for everything else. Mostly Schott when I wear leather, for no other reason than I like the fit and construction. Have a Vanson that I love just as much but doesn’t get as much wear. Denim is usually RRL or Freenote. Have other stuff up on my Insta but it isn’t much riding..

Obligatory bike shot with a couple of things I wear while riding, but don’t wear when I’m not. Sold the Triumph and daily riders are HD sportie (72) and Softtail Slim big twin

I can post some pictures about what all this stuff looks like after it gets cut off by the EMTs.

Ride safe and remember that when you think everything's going great, some fucking ride share driver is going to try to kill you on the freeway.
This is why I wear motorcycle specific gear with integrated armor and materials such as Kevlar and not fashion motorcycle gear. I even wear an airbag vest these days. Does it look "cool"? No. Will it increase my chance of survival and keeping my skin in a crash? Hell yeah!

I really dig the 72 sporty. Had to sell my softail during my last divorce and haven't bought another bike but if I do I'd love to find a 72 in the metal flake green

Yeah, it's a fun bike, and very good handling. Love the narrow front tire and the paint choices for these bikes are all very nice.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
