General Motorcycle Discussion / Yamaha or Star riders?
« on: 01/02/19 03:06PM »
do you or someone you know own a Star or Yamaha cruiser? Maybe a sport/touring bike?

I have a bunch of leather and textile jackets that are mostly yamaha or star branded that I want to get out of the garage. in the past i've done OC Moto contests and the winner got a jacket, but I need to move these.

Reply below. No resellers please.

Need to clear out some closet space.

This is my fall/spring/early and late winter jacket.  No warm liner, but perforated so it's not as good for SoCal winters.  nice temp range for SoCal.  I guess if you're slimmer you could get a hoodie under it.  I usually wore an Underamor thermal when it started to get chilly in the late fall.  NJK is based in San Clemente and mostly they make racing leathers for road racing and speedway racing.  For a time they imported these jackets and don't offer them anymore.

Shoulder, elbow, and back soft armor.  Removable so you could swap in your preference.  Hand warmer pockets, napolean pocket.  sturdy metal zips.  I added paracord so they'd be easier to pull wearing gloves.  Zipper cuffs.  Perforated underarms and partial chest.  Mesh inner lining.  Precurved arms.  Feels heavy and sturdy.  Size Large, I wear a US 42, I'm 5'10", 210, 36 waist.  It fits a little large so if you're a little wider around the middle fit is still OK.  This jacket is cut long on purpose, the theory being in a slide the extra length keeps from exposing your back/stomach.  If you're slimmer and taller it may fit better.  Velcro waist tabs as shown in pics. 

Cosmetic issues with the graphics as you can see, color layer is flaking away but otherwise in good condition.  Regularly cleaned and conditioned.

This is my daily jacket and does really well in SoCal Fall-Winter-Spring.  Zip out liner is perfect for chilly mornings and warmer afternoon commutes.  Subtle enough you can wear into stores/restaurants without looking like a astronaut.  Soft shoulder, elbow, and back armor.  Two hand warmer pockets, napolean pocket, larger storage pockets in shell and liner.  Custom USA tactical flag on right bicep.  Water resistant for SoCal showers, I wouldn't want to wear it in real rain.  Has some fraying on the cuffs, and the inside satin liner has a tear from getting caught in the zipper, otherwise in good shape.  Zipper pull broke so I replaced with some paracord which is actually better than the pointy metal star A* used.

Size Large, US 42, fit is relaxed so even a 44 could probably wear it no problem.  For reference in pic, I'm 5'10", 210 pounds, 36 waist.

Off Topic / 2nd division soccer?
« on: 02/25/18 10:15AM »
any lower division soccer fans here?  I started going to games last season for Orange County SC.  they're fun, inexpensive.  small stadium and club and players are super cool and supportive.  Our supporter group is small and always looking for more committed members to stand and sing for 90.

Opening day is March 17 at the Great Park.

Iíve got a Z900RS that needs a buddy. Iím looking to do a photo/video shoot with old and new and Iím hoping one of you guys or gals would be interested in hanging out, getting some photos taken, and maybe even swapping rides for a few miles.


An aftermarket exhaust system is at the top of most riderís mod list, but what can you really expect from that fancy pipe, and are stock exhausts all just junk anyway?

I stopped watching foozeball a while ago but i made an exception for the SB.  anyone else watch the game?  what do you think of the strange referee calls and non-calls?

In this month's issue of Motorcycle Consumer News they talk about Motorsport Aftermarket Group which manufactures, distributes, or retails pretty much every accessory and apparel brand you know filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November.

Outstanding debt of some $575 million dollars. Creditors include Sumitomo, Pirelli, Arai, Bridgestone, Kenda, Avon, Cobra, Cardo, Yuasa, Ogio, Continental, FMF, EBC, Yoshimura, Shorai.

MCN had a great quote "Attempting to identify motorcycle-related companies that are not impacted in any way by this bankruptcy would yield a very short list."
