Wondering what kind of pants Fonzie is wearing in the Ignition Jacket Photo with the BMW K1200. Are they a reinforced riding pant?

Better than using a Brad-nailer like MY Dad would have done.

It reminds me of the heady days of Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin when the world trembled at the sound of our rockets. Now they will tremble again - at the sound of our silence.

It's not really that complicated.



Cordura at point of contact with variable vent system in the jacket for the 90% of the time we ride in heat/humidity of deep summer ....and put a rain suit on when it rains.



Electric vest for the in a waterproof insulated removable liner for the above jacket for fall and spring cool weather



Try to solve hot, cool, rain and snow in one garment and the result always looks like a 3" thick cheap KMart winter jacket...and people that buy this stuff suffer in the summer and look worse (again 90% of the time we ride).



I love to go with on rides and see them have to rip these multilayer garments off in the heat of summer in the parking lot of places where we stop to eat.

Default I'll Ask the Obvious

If it is true that "We get a lot of gear to test here at MO" then why don't you test it and tell us about it?

Good point! Be sure that if we sample bad stuff we'll write about it. (Still, when it comes to asking for product to test, it's hard not to call Arai and instead go down to Pep Boys!)
