What kind of jacket should I buy?

I had an alpinstar the first time around. Cost me 250 bucks. Budget is a bit smaller this time. Want to keep it under 200. Any sugestions? (I need a new helmet and new gloves too, but since i have those and no jacket, the jacket comes first.)

I was gonna say to spend the $ and get a quality jacket - I'd recommend a Vanson perforated jacket. Tough, high quality and the perforation gives great airflow so you can wear it year round - though it's likely out of your price range.

I have a sick Alpinestar Leather jacket that I wouldn't mind parting with, its like brand new, only reason I want to sell it, is its a bit big for me. $200 cash for a sweet leather jacket.

The Joe Rocket Reactor leather/mesh jacket is a great 3 season jacket.
I keep them in stock and I can meet your budget.
