Question do any of you do this?

Do any of you wear your riding jacket out in public even when you aren't riding? For instance you drive your car but wear your MC jacket out and about

Plus they are alot shorter than a normal jacket, so no I dont. I feel funny getting off my bike and wearing any kind of gear around. Seems like you are try to get attention when you do. I wont even carry my helmet anywhere. Leave it and the gear with my bike locked up.

Nope, I think it would look funny. Now if the jacket wasn't three different colors w/ logos all over it and funky padding was removed then sure. A-stars makes some that look more like everyday leather jackets, think they call it the Black Label line.

MOre pics of the SR-71 please

No.

I thought about it a few months ago when it was cold as outside and I rode to work one day. I had a business function and my jacket was my only coat at the office I had. I went without it though.

Would I at a social setting and not at a work event under similar circumstances? Probably.
