• First Gear Kiliminjaro Air Mesh Jacket

    So, I'm not a huge leather person, and while I was shopping for my jacket, I was offered the FG KJ Air Jacket. Overall, I love it. It has a mesh overcoat and a windproof and waterproof removable liner The jacket is great down to about 30 degrees, and with the removable liner it's capable in warm weather riding as well.

    It's a 3/4 length jacket, so depending on your bike, it MAY bunch. I am 6'3", so it bunches a little bit, but due to my height I need that extra little bit of length.

    As I mentioned, overall it is a great jacket. There are some downfalls unfortunately. 1) Cheap zippers. I've broken the main zipper already and I am pretty pissed, but it still works ok. 2) It's decent in cold weather riding, but there is kind of a draft in the back where the liner meets the shell.

    I would highly recommend the jacket if you can get it on sale. I paid 250 for it, and while it was well worth it, in retrospect, I wouldn't pay more than 200 for it. Enjoy your ride!

    Dyna's rock!

    I bought an FXD back in 1994. It was a '95 model. I rode that bike for 21 years. Put a fair amount of miles on that EVO too. Like any Harley, the EVO did have an Achille's heel. This being the ICB....

    Around here, the EVO era models are typically 7000 or less. A few higher. Of course we are talking 20 plus years old bikes.

    Dynas have become quite popular since they were discontinued as a separate model line last year. Prices have slid up on what used to not be a teribly strong seller.
