Hey everyone, it's late at night and this has been bothering me for awhile. Now, Remy has advised me not to post up a thread like this but i'm going to anyways. So here we go.... i'm just going to throw it out there? mmk?

When I have my leather jacket on while riding, it makes me look fat? Not in a sense that you think, it's just the stomach section. The very bottom part of the jacket makes a small roll around my stomach making it look like I have a "beer belly". Personally I don't care, my jacket keeps me warm and protects me but it also provides me with some false attributes. So, is it just my jacket? NO

I've seen 2 other riders with the same thing and i'm just throwing this out there! Does it bug anyone else and is their anything I can do to get rid of it?

it's probably just a little long for your torso.

if you're really bothered by it, you could get it altered

I also have the same kind of problem;
with no shirt on, I extend my arm out and the skin on my elbow makes rolls and it looks fat, so I was going to have the rolls surgically removed but then I wouldn't be able to bend my arm at the elbow.

You should be looking at the road, and traffic, rather than down at your abdomen, or in the mirrored windows of buildings you pass!:laughing

Seriously.
The more you ride, the less you'll worry about things like these. Get up at 4 am, and be on the road, fully geared and the bike warmed up, when the sun peaks over the horizon, with your favourite road in front of you. Ride and ride until you just can't go another mile, crawl into a strange bed at 2 am, and after a week of doing that, you wake up in Georgia, your gear is dirty, your bike is stuffed with bugs, and you won't care what you look like, what you smell like, the size of your "chicken strips," or any other non essential stuff.:coffee

Riding. Riding is the answer.

Let me guess, it's an Icon jacket? If you bought a jacket that's mainly designed for posing, then it looks good doing just that - standing around. Bunches up when you ride.
If you buy a proper race jacket, it looks good on the bike, but it looks like it shrank in the dryer when you're standing up.
Who cares? You're wearing a helmet...nobody knows or cares who the fat dude is.

If we ever have a poll for "dumbest thread ever" I suspect this one will be firmly in the semi finals..... :D

PS: NO, this is NOT an excuse for someone to start such a poll.... :laughing
