When you imagine an ideal biker, you see a tough looking guy on his bike, wearing a helmet and a jacket. No matter how good your bike is, it does not matter if you have the best motorcycle helmet, a motorcycle rider looks incomplete without his jacket.
Your jacket becomes a part of your bike, and eventually becomes a part of you. So, it is very important that you choose a right jacket, you do not want a part of you to go wrong, right?
How to Choose the Right Motorcycle Jacket
Earlier it was easy for a rider to choose a jacket, but now, there are a myriad of options to choose from. Choosing the jacket from so many alternatives requires patience (along with money!). Also, what is good for you, may not be good for someone else, as a result, the market is influenced by individual preferences to a great extent.
Your Ideal Jacket Checklist
Your jacket should have most of the features listed here.
- The jacket should have the sleeves of the right length (even in the riding position).
While spending on a jacket, you should consider the frequency of use too. If your jacket is just going to lie in your wardrobe, then there is no point in buying a very expensive one, but do not buy a cheap fancy jacket which gives no comfort or safety. One more thing, once you buy a jacket, take good care of it!
