I think it's an 82, either way it's early 80's. A Kawasaki KZ250 CSR. It was free from my dad, needs to be cleaned up and a new battery, might do a tune up on it too. I thought it'd be easy to learn on, and besides, it was free. I'll basically be using it in town only, so it topping out at 55 won't bother me that much until I can get something better. With that out of the way, anyone have any jacket recommendations? I've read tons of info on helmets that's helped, but I haven't seen much on jackets. I'm looking for something comfortable that could pass for a normal jacket, but with the protection of a good bike jacket. Also, are gloves necessary? Any recommendations for those? Thanks in advance. Edit - Actually got the chance to half ass clean it up today, need to detail still, but I took a few pics anyway. Before: After: Low mileage.
