I notice when I ride in the summer (no heavy jacket) my shirt likes to fly up from the wind. Other than stuff my shirts in my pants whick I hate, any ideas on how to keep it down?? :D
Thanks

When I saw this in the ladies lounge, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for this: :laughing:

While this is the Ladies Lounge, I feel I must provide a counterpoint to Bruce's post.

Get a perforated leather or mesh jacket. This will allow air to flow through to keep you cool, protect you from road rash and give you the added benefit that your shirt will stay where it's supposed to.

I was going to say exactly what Gryphon said. A mesh jacket is great, it's cool and gives you the protection, and it will also keep the shirt in!!!
Cheers,

My wife just bought a Joe Rocket (she says it ought to be Josephine Rocket) "Cleo" mesh jacket at motorcyclecloseouts.com, which is online and here in Kansas City.

It isn't hers until after he class and lincensing, and until she is ready to loosen up the purse-strings for me to get a new bike.

You're looking at it all wrong!!! :shock:

Once she has the Buell, she will realize how much getting a new bike would mean to you, and will go straight to the bank to make all the arrangements!!

Definately a win, win situation for you :D

I have that same Joe Rocket mesh jacket and love it, but Mine is silver.

I agree, Very nice bike!! I'm sorry I didn't look more at the Buell's. I love my Boulevard S40, its great for me just begining. Very forgiving for stupid beginer mistakes.

Mary's is silver, as is her helmet. The photo is in the bright sun. The others were too dark.
The Cleo comes in silver, light blue, red wine as far as we saw.

We just did a 2-up ride and she loves hers - she is protectd, plus can wear more comfortable (skimpier :) ) tops and some shorts underneath it all.

The sun does make it hard to tell color sometimes. I just bought a new scorpion helmet (exo-400 Warhawk)that's black with Red and silver/grey markings..

I've been debating on riding pants. It would be nice to be able to wear shorts under them. Rather then wearing Jeans and having to go find somewhere to change or sweat to death.

Thanks yall,
Hey Dusty, how much did her jacket cost if I may ask and does it have armor on it? I live in Florida so heat is a major factor as well. Your wife's outfit looks GREAT.
THanks

It has perforated armor. Same as that used in my Joe Rocket Alter Ego.
It was $126. And comes with a waterproof liner that zips out.

Look at www.motorcyclecloseouts.com
We bought it from their physical store here in KC.

That is a great website.

BTW - in the Cleo jacket, she uses a size SMALL, when normally she is a medium (Size 10) top. It will really help to try one one, both with and without the waterproof liner that comes with it.
