So I'm on the forum this evening looking for an appropriate thread/post to boast a little on my recent jacket score, and your post pops up. Back to Team Blue after many years on Team Halloween (Black & Orange). Have many Team Halloween costumes, so figured I needed something appropriate to wear on the FJR. Searching our local C-List I found a new/old stock Yamaha Racing jacket, about the same vintage as my bike. It's a nice looking, heavy leather jacket, with CE armor in the elbows, shoulders, and a back pad. For $100 + shipping I couldn't pass it up. Whether it becomes my "favorite" jacket remains to be seen. Other than the branding it is very similar in design, and construction to my favorite H-D FXRG jacket, that I have had for 15+ years (without the dead bugs, and wear).
