Ohhh, that would go very nicely with the Bobber aesthetics and 60% off! Does it come with protective padding?

Removable Shoulders and elbow protection. Also has a zipper inside at the bottom to slide in back protector.

It looks like Revzilla has the jacket on super sale but with limited sizes.

I'm not a small guy, not huge, but 5 foot 9 at 230lbs, the XL fits great.

first of all, this isn't me!

A long time dear friend of mine wears the MOST protective gear and bright colors he can find.

Those are jockey pants and shin guards. The gloves and the full face helmet, covered with 2 inch strips of dayglow green tape aren't pictured. He has attached extra mirrors on the handlebar of his bikes.
Note, its Florida were its 90+ degrees today.

He's a good rider by the way.

I've know him for 35+ years and occasionally I ask him why all the heavy gear all the time and the answer is what you'd expect. for protection.

Helmet of some kind; goggles if 1/2 helmet; full-faced, if very cold/rain or extremely hot
Jacket of some kind, the weather mandates which one
Gloves of some kind, relative to weather
Jeans, chaps, or Triumph breathable leather pants if cold/wet anticipated
Boots of some kind (1/2 boots, Cowboy boots, Aerostitch Combat Boots for real cold/wet)

The older I get, the less I care about brand names (and am more concerned with quality/function), but try to good and dress conservatively.

I wanted to throw a comment in the Distinguished Gentlemen's post , but thought it would hijack an otherwise good thread. So I searched and found this existing post. :D

I wear regular old blue jeans all the time. Daily, weekly , year end , year out. When I knew I was going to do harder adventure riding , the Duluth fire hose pants came out , otherwise....... I'm 400,000 miles + into street riding , and have had 2 incidents in my 20 years of riding , both at speed , jeans held up fine.
I do wear a good helmet (lean HJC for full street as they seem to fit my head best) Currently a CL-17 , also an appropriate jacket to the season , here in Georgia , I will wear a textile (Powertrip , Joe Rocket's cruiser line) 8-9 months a year , and a solid leather motorcycle jacket the other 2-3 months. I wear good gloves , typically deerskin or textile year round. For boots , I like Bates , Alpinestar , etc....... and find myself jumping the Bates most often for the Bobber. They are above the ankle boots.

Then about 5% of the time I sport a tee shirt and helmet/gloves when the mood strikes. :p
