Dinner Jacket

Another thing I think I'm going to work on this year is a jacket that has awesome visibility. Something better than the gray one I have now. It'll be hard to find the right one, I'm a stickler for a great fit, and most importantly I carry a ton of stuff with me in my pockets when I ride so I need lots-o-pockets. A few gate/garage door openers, paperwork, duct tape, extra keys, bandanna, stuff like that. I recently saw this Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 that looked nice and was received well by the reviewers, plus I like the checkers. Still looking though, hard to find just the right mix of colors and style with utility.

I've decided not to buy Joe Rocket any more. Decided that when I get pulled over, Officer Friendly is not so impressed by the logos that seem to brag about how fast I am.

I have a TourMaster jacket now.

With regards to the visibility issue, I have a silver mesh jacket with two liners. When I feel I want the extra visibility, I put on my ANSI Class II safety vest. ($25 from ebay) Then, I can have the jacket I want, as well as the fit & features I want.

What helmet do you wear? I have a white one, which was voted to be the most visible stock color. (over the orange that Shoei offers)

Good to find another motorcycle blog.
