What is the point of wearing these suits? Do they really protect you?

I would think these would be more suited for racing rather than riding in the streets. Plus, who wants to look like a power ranger?

Kanotuna, I once use to think that Leathers we just for looks but,

In studies of 'survivability' of various garment materials to a 50 MPH ride on asphalt, for example, denim lasted no more than FOUR FEET before wearing through. Kevlar, on the other hand, lasted EIGHTEEN FEET. But standard motorcycle quality (about three times heavier than fashion jacket material) lasted EIGHTY-SIX FEET.

If you are sliding in your jeans, the jeans are only going to protect you for 4 feet, the rest of the time your skin will be peeling off....can you say "Skin Graph"?

Leathers really do protect you, Sportbikes now a days are almost faster then race bikes 5-10 years ago, they have come a long way... Even a Katana can do almost 50, down hill, with a tail wind... you don't want to go down at that speed...

I will see if I can scrounge up some pictures for you, to show you what a low side looks like with jeans and with leathers.

Good luck,


Ride your ride and be safe this season.

when you hit the asphalt and then gravel on the side of the road, your jacket will come right up, I've got a pretty scarred up left side to prove it


Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.
