Yeah, sometimes I feel like a power ranger, and I think my jacket is fairly low key. Joe Rocket Speedmaster, new style, solid black w/ silver shoulders. Nice Jacket, although the Fieldsheer looked pretty nice when I was at DanO's...

I had planned on ordering a nice Syed over the winter, but somehow managed to spend all my kimby-dollars on everything BUT!

So, for the forseeable future, I'll be cruising around in my 16-year-old, fringed black leather Harley jacket.

JR Blaster in the 'cooler' days and while on the track (with matching pants.)

JR Phoenix during the warmer months.

About 75% of the time I wear my 4 link Teknic back protector as well.

I think I've got the same as Crazy. I just can't remember if the Phoenix or the Reactor has the leather arms. I've got the one with the leather arms.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I like the jacket. It's probably not a good hot weather jacket though. A perf'd leather would be better I think. I must say it performed very well though. I just had a get off at around 35-40 mph(very violent) where I busted two ribs from the impact and shattered my helmet. The IXS jacket and pants save my hide. The shoulder took the biggest hit. I had the CE armor in the shoulders and elbows. It worked as advertised. Ripped a few stitches and scuffed the leather but no penetration at all. I'd fully recommend it for someone who is looking for good protection.
