Perforated leather, anyone?

Discussion in 'Australian Motorcycles' started by Doctor Shifty, Jan 2, 2009.

  1. I'm getting sick of the DriRider mesh jacket in traffic. Without a bit
    of air blowing through it the thing heats up like any other chunk of
    black plastic.

    Thought I'd look out for light coloured perforated leather jacket instead.

    Anyone use one? Do they get real air flow? As good as mesh? Still
    cool(ish) in city traffic?

    there's your problem.

    I have a 1st gen RJays mesh which I bought in preference to the
    Dririder because it wasn't black.

    In the heat it's not perfect but it is still fairly cool.

    If you want perf leather with as much perf as the mesh jackets you'd
    need to get one made.

    The Red mesh jackets are lots cooler (well temperature cooler anyway :)

    I use a light colored BMW Airflow Jacket, much better than a dark color in
    Queenslands summer.

    I've been wearing the same light grey jacket / blue pants set of
    Kushitani leathers for nearly 7 years now, summer and winter. They're
    much much cooler to ride in than either of my black leather jackets,
    even when worn with jeans.

    Of course these leathers are even cooler (in all meanings of the

  7. Lemme guess. It's one of those tourist things that you stand behind with
    your head in the gap and they take your photo. :)

    He turned up at my house the same day he took that. If I'd known, I'd
    have locked the door. :)

    Will you *please* get a new .sig? You've been lugging that one around
    for far too long now.
