i've recently decided that instead of buying my first car to buy a motorcycle; cheaper & ALOT more mpg. but, the thing is most jackets &boots a person would wear for safety precautions are all leather. Are there any fashionable leather like alternatives with the same level of protection ? Or, even better does anyone kno a custom tailor who could do a jacket in pleather ? (id want my jacket to be a custom for sure)
Motoport.com offers motorcycle apparel.They speak highly about a synthetic product called Kevlar which is stronger and lasts longer than leather. I wonder if anyone makes shoes in this material yet....hmmm.
I also ride and I have an Alpine Star jacket with the body armor that isn't leather so they will be a good place to check. Unfortunately, I just wear my sneakers when I ride or an old pair of hiking boots so I am no help there. Sorry.
