I have 3, SSB has 2.. The ones which aren't on hangers tend to decorate the backs of the dining chairs

Re: too many jackets? the wall to the left of my bar is full!

Geez, I just had a look in my wardrobe and I have 2 leather, 1 textile jackets, and 4 pairs of leather pants and 2 helmets. The little lady has 2 jackets, 1 leather, 1 textile and 1 pair of textile pants, 2 pair of leather pants that don't fit any more, plus her helmet.
Not to mention the 3 old Brando jackets we don't use any more.
Might have to beef up the hanging rail in there I think.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

Not bothered by the number of jackets.... the cobwebs at the corner completely distracted me.

Yikes....

Re: too many jackets? the wall to the left of my bar is full!

oddly i still have my non protective gear as well, would not wear it and sure glad never had an incedent back then. when i first started riding it was acceptable for only helmet, jeans, a leather jacket, and leather gloves.

odd to think you still see guys riding with out. im no stranger to falling luckily only in the dirt.

P.s. I'll even pay the postage

same here. that massive amount of cobwebs is the first thing I saw.


I have a 2 piece leather suit, textile jacket, textile pants, and a mesh jacket. I think maybe 4 pairs of gloves (only 2 usable now), a back protector, 3 helmets that are all "collectors" pieces now, and 1 pair of boots. Never can have too much gear in my opinion even if you can only wear one of each at a time.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Hey Shakey.. Isn't the smoke detector supposed to hanging from the ceiling somewhere, not decorating the side???

Also.. looks like you nicked my pool cue.. I wondered where that went...

cobwebs...lol yup i work long hours so my house keeping has the occasional slip. specially considering id rather be riding than cleaning. got to take care of that though.

loopy,

i rent the house...its not intirely unusual to see smoke/co detector mounted on a wall as long as its up high.


jazzy,

glad u like! but ill wait till i get heckled on the road...ha ha!
thats the newest member to the collection bought it to match my leather overpants. i was sold on the wings and the black and grey matches my held phantoms. scored for 200 on flea bay. feels like a nice sturdy jacket. the back pad was laughable, but better than my a-stars stock carpet padding. glad i have a knox back protector.

Re: too many jackets? the wall to the left of my bar is full!

Nice one ShakeyI got a Knox back protector, should wear it with my A-Stars Jacket, although there is some serious padding in the arms,shoulders and chest, besides the 'Go Faster' hump up the top of the rear of the jacket, there's nothing else in the back area at all???? Bad design me thinks there
