Today was the first time I went for a ride in my full leathers. Prior to today, I'd usually just wear my Bellstaff textile and a pair of jeans. I've worn the jacket on it's own, but due to it's florescent orange colour (see my gallery), I thought the jacket AND pants might be too much for the street.
All I can say is, I'll be wearing more leather from now on! I loved how it hugs the body (no loose clothing flapping in the wind), was pre-curved for the riding position, and most of all...gave me that added sense of security/safety with the armour from shoulders to ankles and that second-set-of-skin feeling that only leather can give you. Sure, I may look (and ride) like a human pylon on two wheels , but do I ever feel protected. Added safety feature...every driver I rode by couldn't help but see me!
Having said that, I'll probably pick up a less 'bold' colour for my next suit. I don't like people looking at me all the time...
Twas a great day for a ride!
