"I don't believe in conclusions -- it's this simple: If you really want a jacket with flames on it, buy this one, I like it and wear it all the time. If you don't like, don't buy it."



Hey Ebass, nice dodge on the review, but tell us what you really think! Seems more like a press release. "See this jacket with flames, its made of leather. It's a leather jacket, it has pockets. Its a flamed and pocketed leather jacket."

-Just a friendly jab, buddy

Default Let's see that moon, Mooner

I got a very special friendly jab for ya'!







Sorry for the inconclusiveness. Next time I'll throw the jacket on the dyno and offer more hard data. In case you haven't noticed, my product reviews are largely devoted to showing you guys some cool products, offering the specs, my impressions for what they're worth, and most importantly offering a showcase for my razor sharp wit!



Relax, enjoy, and if you wanna know how well anything does in a crash test, test it your darn self and for God's sake man, be sure to get it on video!



Your disloyal servant,



EBass

Default Speaking of crash test

Speaking of crash test



I do wish Congress would fund a new motorcycle crash study.



And this time instead of giving us useful information like "those with less experience are more likely to have wrecks", I would like a true to life crash test study focusing on different garments.



No I am not suggesting we use US terrorist being held in Cuba; be pitched off the back of a pickup truck at 70 mph warring different MO gear.



I am saying they can use a weighted dummy and do a scientific test using all the latest jackets from different manufactures.



Including; mesh, leather, Cordova, nylon, jeans/cotton, Kevlar, etc



Especially those with different kinds of body armor build in.

Flaming, huh huh, you said flaming. A very apt moniker for that jacket, if I do say so.

Default Crash Test Dummies?

Since the main purpose of leather jackets, boots, gloves, helmets etc is for crash protection, maybe you guys should crash test them for us. I suppose that the crash test dummy job would go the the most junior staffer, so that would serve to weed out the motojournalist wannabes from the really motivated! Might also increase staff turnover a bit, though

Default Wathefukyawant?

Seemed to me that EBass' conclusion was pretty clear -- if you are the kinda guy who prefers an Aerostich, or who alwayswears roadrace leathers, or who prefers waxed Belstaff jackets, this one probably is not for you. If you like the styling, Eric has described its comfort and other features.



I do agree with Serazuwa that they should have gotten Bree to model it instead, but otherwise, I have no complaints about the article. Good work, Eric!

Default I second that!

You hit the nail on the head seruzawa. What MO needs is more pics of Bree and less of that fat, ugly, skinhead EBass. Off with his head, on with the cleavage! The people have spoken!



Uh, wait a minute. I'm EBass. Oh screw it, I'd still rather see pics of Bree than me!





Self-loathingly yours,



EBass
