No just a rain suit is my guess

I think it's an old Kawasaki KZ1000 Mk II with Vetter bags or maybe an old GS850/1000G Suzook?

It's a camouflage suit but it's not a purpose built riding suit

Got similar mirrors on my bike. Way more better than standard. No elbows, shoulders etc and a far smaller blind spot.
