Killer deal for a bigger guy?

I came across this yesterday while looking for helmets and jackets for me and the misses.

Joe Rocket Honda Superhawk Jacket :: MotorcycleGear.com

What's everyone think about this?

Looks like a steal if it's your size.

Shopping deals like this have stocked my closet with leather that is good from 40f to 100f. Then I take the summer off. If you believe in ATGATT you will build a collection over your riding years.

I just bought one, I like it a lot, the 54 fits like a Gigantic 2X, not quite a 3x, cause my buddys 2X icon motor head jacket is tight on me, and shoulders are too narrow, but the 54 Joe rocket jacket fits me perfectly, in case anyone is wondering im about 6' 3" and 240# my only complaint with it is that the elbow armor is in a nnoying place, so I took them out cause they bugged me

Ill put up some pics of it if you want, let me know

Mine was $79 cause I bought the last 54 they had, im pretty sure the 56 would have fit me fine also

I had to look up what ATGATT means, I do that already, but didn't know what ATGATT stood for

I know what you mean about the elbow armor, bugs me sometimes, but they are staying in there. I also got the 54, it was tight on me when I got it, I've been doing Insanity since and lost some weight so it's a little loose on me now. I'm 6', 280 lbs. I wish they had this jacket in mesh also, I love it. I rode it to the Blessing this past Saturday in Dayton and didn't burn up at all, it's not that hot being a full leather jacket, but I took out the liner and all the front "patches" to let it breathe. I also got the HJC CS-R1 Samurai Helmet, I like it, but it whistles too much, but I paid $120 ish for both combined so I'm not complaining.

8541Hawk will become famous soon enough
Ear plugs are you friend.....

and you will find that most helmets that vent well will be on the noisy side.
