Need new leather jacket

I've put on about 100 miles in the last couple days and I've realized my current jacket has gotten all stretched out from washing it (textile of course). On the freeway, it's been acting pretty much like a sail which is really annoying so I'm looking at something in leather and a little better fitting.

I got myself a A* 1 pc last summer and really like the quality so I'd like to stick with them for a daily riding jacket. Perf would be nice, but not necessary and mostly black or black/white. Has anyone seen any local dealers that have anything on clearance from last season's stock or know of somewhere online that's got great prices lately? With the beginning of the season upon us, I figure there's got to be a good deal around somewhere...

DGY is the only local dealer I know that carries a decent stock.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

The one piece is an option, but not exactly comfortable for bike nights and such. I am seriously considering wearing it for the commute I will have with my move next month and just bring my dress clothes in a bag, but I'd like to have the jacket if I can find a deal

do u wear an under suit? like under armor and such.

i find that a one piece is very comfortable with my ua heat gear. although i have to admit that if u are mostly commuting its not as appropriate an option as a jacket/jeans (squid combo) lol...

if u want to buy from a dealer check out highlands yamaha in countryside. best prices ive seen at a dealership.

Highlands yamaha has some great deals. Racer Cafe in St Charles has always been well for me. DGY really doesnt have much of a selection anymore.
