    Ok I just bought an 08 Kawasaki Ninja 250, and need to get a motorbike jacket.

    Being the style conscious fashionista that I am, I want to get something that will protect me if I fall, but also look good while do so.. so that means a slim leather jacket.

    Anyway, probably more of a general post.. any riders on here? what do you wear? post up your ride..

    What are you looking for? A water proof jacket? Summer jacket? Vanson Leathers are nice also.

    Just a nice leather jacket.. I probably won't need a water proof jacket, just going to ride when the weather is good.

    This looks pretty good... cafe racer style... but doubt theres much armor in there...

    That's a great site to buy Dainese products for cheap.

    It's hard to get a motorcycle jacket that looks bad. Those hundreds of dollars you pay go into the styling too. Just get one that matches the color of your bike. Can't go wrong with alpine star.

    Does anyone know how the Dainese leather jackets fit?
    I like the Greyhound Pelle...

    The AlpineStars Cosmo in size 48 fits me perfectly, but I don't think any stores around here stock Dainese so I can't try them on..
