Made2Race Saber Leather Jacket

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Itchy22, Dec 11, 2006.

  1. G'day all,

    I am new to riding (finished Qride last week) and hope to purchase a bike in the next week or two. I have been doing the rounds of the shops to check out gear. I was going to buy a Drimesh Climate Control 2 Jacket, but the more I read and thought about it Leather seemed the way to go.

    I came across a Made2Race Saber Leather Jacket today, which can be viewed at.



    http://made2race.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=71

    It felt really good and I really liked the perforated leather chest & arm panels.

    The internet site seems to give everything in US dollars. The asking price in the shop is $470 less 10% if I purchase all my gear there.

    Has anyone have any experience with this jacket or anything in this brand?

    Is the price reasonable?

    Should I go for a different brand of Leather Jacket or go back to a Drimesh Climate Control 2 Jacket?

    Whilst I am at it I am also thinking of getting a pair of AXO (forgot the model number) boots which have good ankle, heel and toe protection - $300

    AGV Stealth Helmet $400 (I tried on all the brands and it seemed to fit best)

    RJays Jet Stream Gloves - $60

    Draggin Jeans $200 plus Knee Armour $40

    Xena Disc Lock $100

    If anyone has any opinions on the other stuff that would be great.

    As mentioned there would be a 10% discount because of the bulk purchase. Is this reasonable or should I be trying for more?

    I won't be buying my bike from there (buying a mates) but will probably get it serviced there.

    Thanks in advance.

    Itchy

  2. $1500 worth of gear... push for 15% doesn't hurt to ask. 20% if you got the balls
    Casually mention Winter is just around the corner and you'll probably need a full set of winter gear... oh wait your in the sunny state... does it even get cold up there?

  3. Itchy sounds like you have got it covered, oh get 2 sets of draggins if you can!

  4. The only thing I'd be worried about with only having a leather jacket is getting rained on. Maybe you could buy one of those sexy 1 peice outershell things and keep that under your seat just in case you do get caught out. The M2R jacket looks nice and for the price its a good deal. Spose you wouldn't need a thermal liner in the sunshine state either....
