Leather + separate protectors?
Hi all. I'm going to start riding (ie. new rider) next season and am planning on what to get. Wondering if you guys can give me some suggestions.
First of all, I plan on riding in warm weather and dry days only. It will be for non-frequent, non-aggressive city riding only. After reading about leather vs textiles, I still want to get a leather jacket because it does sound safer, although it may be a bit hot / overkill for my type of riding. I have also read that the better fit the jacket is, the less chance the protectors will slip around during a slide.
I'm wondering if the following is a good idea - Get a leather jacket that have removable protectors and nothing fixed to the jacket (eg. Something like Dainese SF instead of Delmar or Santa Monica) + some kind of inner safety jacket (those that include shoulder, elbow, neck, chest and back protectors). I'm hoping with this combination:
1) protector will have the least chance of moving around during a slide
2) leather jacket with the protectors removed can be worn as a normal jacket during winter
Does this make sense at all? Thanks for your advances in advance.
