Check out Fox Creek Leather for some high quality U.S. made riding jackets and pants, I wear the vented racing jacket when I'm not bundled up in my Aerostitch suit.

Is their leather quality up to par? It's hard to tell in a photo, but some of the internet motorcycle jacket leather quality leaves me suspicious. I have seen jackets purchased from some dealers that wouldn't save any skin in case of a fall.

Fox Creek is the real deal, the only negetive is they don't have armor however the leather is very thick and doubled stitched. You won't be disapointed.

Default Cold weather

I ride a Suzuki GS500E from 2002. It takes a while to warm up if its below 55-60. It isn't made for cold weather either, so you might have to wait. I would try flushing the gas out and refueling. If you do get it to start and you get a good ride in, let me know. Also try out this route map system I created on an allstate page allstate insurance route mapping. I am an affiliate of allstate and thus the title. It is like google earth but you can save routes on it and make them private or public. Good luck with the bike.
