    Hey guys,

    I am looking at this jacket to be my first leather jacket, but have a question about it.



    The jacket has an aero hump on the back, it doesnt appear to be as big as some of the other ones i saw in the shop. I am just wondering if anyone rides with this jacket or any other jacket with an aero hump on the back, are they comfortable?

    The other thing as well is i am only an L plater, so me on a hectic 250cc motorbike would look kinda wierd if i am not riding it in a forward leaning pose. Thoughts?
    I know this is a personal preference, but thats the sort of cut of the jacket i am after, and from most of the jackets i tried in the shop, it seemed to have the best armour in it. (bar the back protector)

    I was also looking at the white version, but am certain that it would get dirty very quickly.
  2. who gives a damn about what you ride or what u wear

    if you feel good in the jacket and good on your bike, thats what matters. If you like the shift one, go for it!

    im gonna buy the RC-1 with the much bigger back hump on it and havent thought once about what others are gonna think... I want it for my own protection more than anything.
