My $30 leather jacket!!!

Pretty much all my friends have been buying bikes. 1 got a 2007 Suzuki V-strom 1000. Another a 1997 Katana 600. Another a 02 GSXR 600. Followed by another buddy who got a 2006 Ninja 250. With a few more getting some shortly.

The guy with the GSXR got a Jacket and AGV helmet along with his bike. The only problem is they are both medium. So he bought the guy with the Ninja 250 Shoei "Smoking Joes" helmet and gave the jacket & AGV to my buddy with the 250. But my buddy with the 250 bought a brand new KBC helmet and has a Kevlar and Leather jacket on the way that matches his Ninja 250 better.

Now I didn't think "Medium" when looking for a jacket but this one fit. So my buddy sold it to me for $30. It fits great somehow. It's a Teknic and here are some pics...



I don't know much about "Teknic" but figures some people would.

Teknic has some awesome stuff. I have Teknic gloves, pants n a jacket. All of which did extremely well in my lowside at the Dragon.

And $30 for a brand name leather jacket ya cant beat

I get confused telling it. Basically I sold my old motorcycle to a friend to sell. And once I sold it to them they all got a hit of the crack pipe and went out and got their own motorycycles and some people had gear come with their used bikes that I snatched up.

You'd be proud of them too. First thing all of them did was go out and buy gear. Each person got 1 textile and 1 leather with Snell approved helmets.

I just got lucky with this. And that's the only thing bike related that I got lucky with.

When I got my first bike (About 6months ago) I got a killer deal on a HJC AC-12 El Diablo helmet. Brand new from a store for $50. It wasn't mispriced either because I asked. Here is the kicker. When I got my bike the front tire was dry-rotted bad. The seller said he already had a tire ordered and all I had to do was pick it up from some bike shop near him. I had a buddy go up there and they had no clue what he was talking about and then the guy wouldn't answer his phone. So I had to get a new tire. I ended up going to the bike shop and got a front tire for $100 and $60 to put it on. If not for me needing a tire I would have never gotten that helmet. But by me needing a tire I still spent a bunch of money on the tire so it evened out.

But that's my life. I have terrible luck and all my friends can back me up on that.
