    Finally got a real leather jacket with armor

    Finally got a real motorcycle leather jacket with armor yesterday , it's a discontinued model but it's pretty nice , its a Fieldsheer AirBlade http://www.fieldsheer.com/airblade_jacket.htm -

    I have a question though , do you baby the leathers like clean it everyday and stuff , or can you just leave it on the floor sometimes and sometimes someone like sits on it now and then ? Cause I can't baby this thing . . . I ride to school and it doesn't fit in my locker so I might have to leave it on the floor in my classes and maybe someone might step on it . Is this ok ? Or is this going to kill the armor inside the jacket and the leather ? and sometimes my friends like to hit the armor when I have it on because they think its cool . .. . they scratched up my helmet before once , because we were doing jackass videos but thats a different story . . . , So back to the leathers , is it ok to just let people hit it now and then or is it not meant to be hit like that ?

    You don't need to baby them they are already dead. I have thrown mine down the track a couple of times and it didn't bitch I raced with the same one last year with the zip on pants. Really just make sure if it gets really wet you let it dry naturally, not in a cloths dryer.. That and wipe the dust off once a week or so..

    Did you decide on a bike yet???

    DaSpence : I think I paid ~130 for it , I don't remember right now off the top of my head, because my uncle paid fot it , I like it , its a nice jacket , and about the locker . . . I goto a school where lockers are the size of microwaves . . only crap goes in . .

    gsxr600ger : thanks for the info , I am thinking of a GSXR 750 , 600 , CBR 600 F4i , ZX-6 R , CBR 900 RR or SV650 , which ever one I can get my hands on first after I sell my current bike . I know that most people would yell squid at me if I get the GSXR 750 or CBR 900 RR , but . . oh well what ever makes me happy , hopefully I won't get myself in over my head .

    Worst come worst . . if the speed addiction continues even more . . I sell my car and get myself a ducati 999 . . . , but that's not going to happen . . heheehheeh

    Hmm.. Hey Rachel that is some good information...

    Too bad I don't really have a place to just leave my new leathers on the floor.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Awesome , thanks for the info , now I don't have to worry about the leathers
