Long Jackets

Is there a brand of jacket that is longer than most?? I was given an XL jacket (Jordan) when I bought my bike about 8 years ago. It fits well around the body but is shorter than I would like. I am 6'4 so I know we got some taller riders on here.

Thanks

You have a couple of options.

I can't tell you specifically which off-hand, but I know there are brands that specifically offer a "tall" size where the torso and sleeves are longer. As an example, here's a Joe Rocket that's offered in both regular and "tall" options: http://www.motorcyclegear.com/street...le_jacket.html

Alternatively, (I don't think this is what you're looking for given the bike you list, but) you could look for a "3/4" adventure style jacket. These are cut so that the tail sits at or below your hips, as opposed to your waist. These are a much longer cut, but will not be fashionable on a sport bike. http://www.motorcyclegear.com/street...re_jacket.html

They're supposed to fit short like that, I'm 6'4", long torso and a Joe Rocket Medium fits me just right. You want a tight fit but not so tight it restricts your movement. Plus mine has these clips that go thru your belt to keep it from riding up. Does yours? If not I suggest find a jacket with something like this that keeps it from coming up above your gut lol it's a lifesaver.
