• 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!

    Do they have vintage sidecar racing down your way, that would be an awesome way to waste some time with your kid :) and I think you even have a nice BSA 650 engine kicking around don't you?

    I was stunned at the place Kanuck Kathi managed to go on a XT225! The lower suspension doesn't allow the speed of my 500exc .. but she got to most of the same places.

    ... and this has got me...

    Kerosene can be used for cleaning chains (including O, X-ring chains.)
    There may be better things but #1 diesel is ok.
