    I don't think a textile jacket looks any good till it's faded. LOL! Good luck on the "goal". There is no better reason to buy new gear. I work with a chap that just had his MD read him the "riot act"......He's pretty much had to change out his whole wardrobe. In his case, that was double good. Most of his crap was from the 70's! You go girl!

    I have the Tourmaster version of the convertible jacket...I'm very happy with it, less gear to carry!

    The best deal I ever got on gear, however, was from a sale at Dennis Kirk, bought a matching set of Technics jackets for the wife and I, 49 bucks each!

    Picked up 5 tickets for the April 13th race. $50 each on line at Ticketmaster. Super pumped. Haven't been to a sx race in about 10 years.
    Tonight's race is in Anaheim (Speed 930pm). My money's on Trey Canard for the longshot win although Villopoto is the fav.

    Nice! Looking forward to seeing that Wolfmann rack/bags setup. Maybe you could stuff 'em and take some pics? You bought a 1 piece Aerostich suit?

    Racks, cross-threaded one bolt and had to remove part of a home-made heat shield I already had, but otherwise as easy as replacing 6 bolts (included)

    Bags can roll up or down to increase or decrease space, just like a canoe drybag.

    No need to relocate signals.

    Got the matching tankbag, and have tank panniers too (not shown)

    I want to love the jacket, but I'm not there yet. Bought it on sale (showroom/photoshoot sample). Gonna miss my Fieldsheer jacket.

    Also picked up some LED lights, about 1000 lumens each.

    Wow, with that jacket and your helmet, you WILL be seen... a (very) good thing! I really like that Wolfmann setup. One thing I've read a couple of times is how, when (there's no if, right) you do drop your bike, the bags will absorb some shock and you'll wind up with less damage than if you had hard boxes on racks - I like that. That bag material looks so tough! You are all set for some serious summer adventuring now! Am still dreaming of that AB foothills FTR ride I'm hoping to do this summer. Retirement imminent.

    Definitely not. We fought this hard to get our team back, the last thing we want to do is give them a reason to take 'em away again!
