Motorcycle jacket
show user profile  9krausec
My father gave me a biker jacket and it fits, but it is really short on the back area. I was wondering if anyone has seen this style of jacket before (I haven't so it might just be really 2 small and I would look like an asshole wearing it...). I don't have a camera so no pics, but give me your input...

The more of your body that you can cover the better when sliding down the road on your elbows hands and hips.. ahhh the memories :)... also you'd get cold kidneys... which sucks.

motorcycle jackets are supposed to be really tight, if its leather it will stretch a bit too.

The jacket I have does feel short compared to none bike jackets but it does go down to were my belt is , but doesn't go much past it, how short are we talking about?

My jacket is also short at the back but dont worry, its becuase the leather trousers go higher than useual for it. well i just useually have a shirt covering it up but if i was to zip my trousers to the jacket it should be fine. anyways my point is check that the jacket has a zip and i wouldnt really worry about it too much unless u litterally mean its half way up ur spine,.. then it might have material missing.

It's normal for it to be short. They're designed for sitting or leaned positions. My racing jacket is short too. It looks almost silly, however it's perfect when you ride.

you need this:

protects your kidneys from back wind and is good general protection too.

Thanks for the input everyone.. Yes I am totally getting kidney protectors and another special belt thing (don't know the specifics yet), but the belt holds your insides together so the muscle doesn't get shaken from the bone due to prolonged exposure to immense vibrations (do I just have a extra dirty mind, or does that somehow sound sexually dirty to anyone else too?)...

This whole thing is due to my senior summer vacation I am taking with 2 of my buds... This is our route that we are motorcycling..

At first we were just going to go to mexico, but one of my lady friends invited us to stay at a condo for a week in july that her family has a timeshare on... (I come from a poor, broken family, and I have never been on a vacation, so I am really excited about this!!!). My 2 friends and I are going to motorcycle to mexico without stopping at any motels or anything, just sleeping off the road somewheres....... I'll put pictures up after we get back!!!
