    The tobacco is absolutely gorgeous. But in general I'm not a fan of brown moto jackets. I try not to mix blacks and browns (too much time on the forum) and almost everything in the Moto world has lots of black in it. But if you got, say, brown boots and a blue bike, then go for it.

    I have a maroon bike and brown boots, so I'm guessing it would be a good match. Their Turbine jacket looks pretty nice too.

    Found a video that shows the different colors of the Ronin. Pretty snazzy.

    I bought from RevZilla. Great shop. Yeah go with the tobacco then. The one criticisim i have is that the sleeves are a little long for me (I'm a 33" sleeve) and the sleeve zippers don't stay zipped too well. Otherwise very happy.

    I know what goofy means. I just thought TS might have meant something else, since looking a tad goofy doesn't seem very prohibitive to any action. But perhaps I'm thinking too much of the cool father-son moment (as envisioned by papa, I'm sure) and too little of the derision on the streets. The last part is what made me answer TS' question. I could have started with that in hindsight. I see it as a small pain (if any), bigger gain kind of situation. By looking goofy he can make his father look cool (arriving with motorcycle; riding off together with son both on their respective motorcycle).

    I'm in College Station for the next year and then I'm hoping to get out of there as soon as possible.

    I love my Dad and while I'm sure there was a time when he was a really cool guy, he is firmly landed in Dad jeans and tucked in polo territory. He thinks that he is too cool for a helmet at the moment, so I'm constantly trying to tell him to stop trying to look like a bad ass and to strap one on.

    Let me guess, white sneaks? Only reason I know is you have described my father's riding gear to a T.

    Noo. Not the white sneaks. I was visiting in Connecticut for a weekend recently. Every middle aged guy there was doing no helmet, no jacket, white sneaks and shorts. F*king weekend warriors.

    i was riding the other day in a full face helmet with the visor up and something hard snuck in and hit me in the cheek. i can understand how someone could even wear a half helmet, let alone no helmet.

    Haha almost. He went through a short period of wearing his gear, so he actually has boots that he still wears. To be fair to him, it has consistently been above 100 degrees so it makes it a pretty unpleasant experience to have a helmet on. My sister's husband is being assigned to a base in Louisiana and we are going to ride out to check it out tomorrow. Louisiana has a helmet law so he is going to be forced to at least strap on his half helmet.
