Jackets for tall riders

Does anyone know if there are any jackets that fit taller riders very well? I am wearing a Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 right now and I feel like it doesn't cover my lower back very well. I am 6'4". What are you tall riders wearing? I am looking to upgrade to leather very soon. Any suggestions?

The only jackets I have found that come in talls are the Scorpion jackets.

Sadly, the only one I can find, and it still doesn't give the jacket justice.

If you want the model name Im sure I can find it but I'm at work right now; wont be till tomorrow eve

Looks like you have the One-O-One. Not bad looking.

By "more than long enough", you mean that it goes below your belt?
