    Any opinions on it and where to buy it locally? If you guys don't think this a good jack.. then what would you suggest.. Its my first Jacket.. Keep in mind I don't want to dump too much money into a jacket.

    The Jacket's pretty good. I think it's supposed to be a meteor jacket which was one of the first jackets I had. The things that I looked for in my first jacket were padding (back and forearms esp.), vents and a full-sleeved inside liner. This jacket (i think...if it's the same as my old one) has it all. The only downside to the jacket is that it ain't 100% waterproof like joe rocket advertises.... i got soaked when i rode with it when i was takin the motorcycle course.... oh yeah and everyone has this jacket too...but if you're getting the nicky haden replica i wouldn't worry.
    Check out mspeedperformance on 1st and boundary.... marbod will hook you up with some sorta deal!

    I have an all black version of this jacket (actually a model up from it) if you are interested. I went leathers so no need for it any more. Used half a season. PM me

    Black? Red? Both?
    I have this same jacket actually... In all black, but I removed the big cheetah logo on the back...
    It only comes with a vest liner and is more a hybrid between the Meteor and the Atomic jackets...
    Great jacket tho... You can get it pretty much anywhere...
    I picked mine up from Modern Motorcycling for about $229 from a retail price of $299...
    As far as I can remember... the following dealers carry Joe Rocket gear:
    Modern Motorcycling
    Richmond Motorsports
    Carter Motorsports
    Burnaby Kawasaki
    MSpeed Performance
    and a couple others that I can't quite remember...
    Don't ride mad... Relax and you'll live longer...

    Here's the Jacket I have for sale, can't remember the model though, but full armour, back protector and removable lining. Size XL. Anyone want it can take it off my hands for $150.

    I have the same jacket except in black.
    It's a great summer jacket. Not something I'd wear nowadays
    when it get's pretty chilly. The white stripe is extremely
    reflective. Good . It does have partial armor in the
    elbows, a large vent zipper across the back shoulders and
    zip out liner.
