How much are you willing to spend? There are an A$$load of great jackets available at stupidly reduced from retail prices right now. Just gotta look everywhere on the Internet to find the bargins.

http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Detail.bok?no=4316 Want even cheaper-see the STG forum post-They should honor the pricing from there.

Wow...those arent bad prices at all. The jackets I posted however are both under $100, thats why I was asking for commentaries for them. But the first jacket you posted for $160 isnt shabby at all. Thanks.

Thats funny, I litterally just finished watching the vid on youtube before I saw your post...haha.

I ended up getting a blue Twist Of Fate Mesh for $100.

Thanks for everyone's help.

In the beginning, everyone says the same thing, "...I don't have the money on XXX!"

However, keep in mind, you've picked one of the most expensive hobbies. In addition to most expensive and one that is almost most dangerous. When I started riding, I skimped on everything, gloves, jacket, no-pants etc...Eventually, I got use to the prices. At this point, dropping $100 on a pair of gloves is not a big issue or even dropping $5 bills as you said on a leather jacket.

Be smart, I picked up my first leather jacket, a Teknic, during a closeout. This is after I bought an ICON textile jacket. Now, I wear the leather everywhere hot or cold and the textile jacket sits in my closet.

If you look and pay attention to timing, you can find a great deal on closeouts or end of season deals at almost 50-60% off original price. I got my leather Teknic for 175, 60% less than original. Now, I'm eyeing some RS Taichi's at almost $600.

Everything is expensive, just save and buy what you feel is important. The one thing I was not willing to skimp on was my helmet. I got one that was really comfortable and quiet, a SHOEI X11. It cost me $400, but I think well worth it.

Good times.

When people ask if I wear a helmet (since a lot of Florida riders do not) I laugh. Their first reaction is that I do not wear a helmet. I them tell them when I ride I usually have well over $1,000+ (retail, but I never pay retail) of protective crap on. Then I have to roll into all the crap listed below:

Bell Star Helmet-$400
Knox Gilet Air Back Protector-$275
Too Many Jackets to list-$150-$400
Too Many armored Jeans/Mesh/Textile/Leather Pants to list-$60-$250
Gloves of some kind-$60-$120
Forcefield Knee Guards-$60
Sidi Vertigo Corsa Boots-$400

Even at it's cheapest I'm rocking over $1,400 worth of gear. Very cheap insurance compared to a visit to the ER/Skin Grafts/Rehab/Occupational Therapy or at the worst The Morgue.
