Sorry, this is a repost but the other thread appears to have bugged out when I edited it. I informed a mod. I currently have an A* SMK jacket and track pants. They're great but the SMK doesn't have enough airflow to cut it in brissy summer. Therefore I'm after a leather summer jacket with heaps of perf. I'm happy to spend ~$500 for one that will last a few years. After some research the three I'm looking at are: Alpinestars GP-R: Pros: Looks great Heaps of perf Cheapest Cons: No race hump Good CE bio armour but not as good as in the tech 1-r and GMX Alpinestars Tech 1-r: Pros: Looks even better Heaps of protection Cons: Not sure about airflow.. less perf than the others RS Taichi GMX Motion: Pros: Reviews say its great quality Heaps of protection, knox back protector comes standard heaps of perf Cons: Can't try it on as nowhere in Brisbane sells them. I'm keen for the RS Taichi, but I don't really want to buy a jacket online I can't try on first considering i've never seen anything from their brand in person. Therefore I'll probably go for the Tech 1-r if it has enough airflow and if not the GP-R.
