I can research scooters and motorcycles all day long but the accessories are almost just as fun and I have loved researching a jacket. The jacket is the key apparel to a motorist and says so much about you and what you drive.
I first loved the simple synthetic jackets that I saw around the net but fell in love with the leather jackets. I don't know what is but I love good leather products. I feel like they can hold history and just have a timeless look.

I love Milwaukee Leather Apparel's Crazy Horse Jacket. Its just a classic looking motorcycle jacket with great lines and simple. Everything looks very high in quality but the only thing that concerns me is the lack of any sort of armor, and since I am very new the whole motorcycle/scootering game I think I want as much armor as I can get.
This brings me to Icon's Motorhead jacket. A great looking jacket, especially the all black version. I love the lines... not a big fan of the big ICON logo in the middle of the chest but I think the all black downplays this some. It reminds me of a crotch-rocket jacket but also seems like a classic cruiser jacket. It also has tons of armor in the elbows, shoulders and back. Has a removable liner and removable armor, which I love because I would want to wear this all the time if I could.

What do you think? Is there a jacket that I haven't seen that I definitely should consider? Are there any small companies out there similar to Saddleback Leather producing a great product?
