Funny Motorcycle Jerseys?

I'm getting the Troy lee leather speed jacket, and need a couple hot weather jerseys with reasonable prices.

1) Is the price of a Troy lee $39-45 for a jersey justified over the cheaper? That much a difference in quality, ventalation etc? I guess I'm just looking for 100% polyester mesh for hot weather?

2) Can I just wear a large tshirt over the gear without it looking odd? There are quite a few funny motorcycle tshirts, and they are much cheaper than jerseys

3) WHERE CAN I FIND FUNNY, or OFF THE WALL MOTORCYCLE JERSEYS!?!?! I've googled to no avail. Something like "If you can read this, she let me go riding!" or "My other ride is a minivan" or "4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul" etc... something perhaps with attitude?

4) If i'm a 42, large. Would the jersey or tshirt need to be one size up?

5) Are there any waterproof/resistant for colder/wet weather jerseys that shed water? I hate the frogg toggs when its hot, so would rather just keep a jersey over it that sheds everything but heavy downpours.

What's your take? I've always done pure leather jacket, so a hybrid for hot weather commuting like the Troy lee is a new thing. What do I do, jersey, or large-t shirt over it?

I figured some of you have MX background and would know more about where to go with this. Its better to me than a full out mesh jacket, I know its a compromise between a full leather though.

Are you talking about riding on street or dirt? What type of protection is the jersey going to be layered over/under?

Riding on the street. The jersey would be on top of
http://catalog.troyleedesigns.com/ca...oducts_id=1117

Made as hybrid protection jacket with leather and back protection. Made for supermoto racing etc. It looks to be a compromise of course from full leather jacket, but much better than just the armor in a cheapie mesh jacket.

only problem with those are they are t shirts. I'm looking for 100% wicking material jerseys like they use in motocross. :-(

makes it harder. I heard I could have sport companies apply custom iron ons that I make so that would let me do it myself!

In answer to your second question, I have a similar armored shirt thing and I have worn motocross t-shirts over it and you can hardly tell. It just makes you look buff and lumpy, but it's better than looking like a transformer.
