What is up with the vests?

Why the velcro in the back look_like_a_level 2 bullet proof vest?

Can someone enlighten my dumb ass?

If you are talking about this vest, it is called the SR1 Tactical leather vest. The velcro is to make it a tighter or looser fit. It is a newer leather vest on the market aimed at Sportbike Riders.

Vests have long been attributed to cruiser riders, but lately I have seen a lot of sport bike clubs/riders wearing them over mesh style jackets. They are cheaper than an embroidered leather jacket. You can sew patches on them yourself with the right needle kit. You can wear them over a t-shirt when not riding. With the right DOO rag, you look Gangsta!

There is nothing wrong with wearing a vest if that is your thing. I see it no different than putting stickers all over you bike. Bling is Bling. People just express it differently, which is their right in America!

Vest can also be worn with or without a jacket which makes it easy to represent a club on and off the bike.

Just a thought...
