Leather jackets are part of the motorcycle mystique – which explains why even non-riders choose to wear them. It has been scientifically proven that when you want to appeal to the gender of your choice, you stand a better chance of being considered sexually attractive if you’re clad in leather. Then again, the current selection of textile jackets is pretty tasty, too. So, if you need more reasons than increasing the odds of rubbing your naughty bits against receptive others, how about this: Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it plays a vital role in providing a barrier between your meaty center and the hungry bacteria and viruses that surround us. Unless you love skin grafts and massive doses of antibiotics, cover your skin with a quality jacket. The good news is that the variety of leather and textile riding gear available has never been higher – and you don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune protecting your dermis.
