But wearing the right gear every time you ride can mitigate the result of a mishap. That includes a helmet, jacket, gloves, riding pants or reinforced jeans, boots and gloves. The American Motorcyclist Association has come up with an acronym ATGATT.
All The Gear All The Time. Its easier to ride with full gear in cool weather, but once the temps and humidity get up to about 80, it can become an easy excuse for leaving the jacket behind and just wear the T-Shirt. But that leaves the rider vulnerable to severe and incredibly painful road rash in case of an accident.But Harley-Davidson makes many warm weather jacket solutions, and their newest offering is the Knuck Mesh & Leather jacket. The jacket is designed for hot weather comfort, protection, and for its good looks.
The Knuck features polyester mesh panels on the front, back and the underside of the sleeves to let cooling air flow around the torso when riding. Middleweight distressed leather accents the sleeves, upper front and back yoke, zipper placket, pocket welts and waistband. While it may seem counter-intuitive, I can attest to the fact that riding in hot sunny and humid weather is much more comfortable with a mesh jacket like this one, than just riding with a T-Shirt. And you dont have to worry about sunburn, which adds to rider discomfort, and it slows dehydration which can lead to sunstroke. The jacket also has many great features including two large zipped front chest pockets, and two zipped side pockets.
Inside is a vertical breast packet with a headphone port which makes it easy to thread your earbuds inside the jacket so theyre not flapping around in the wind. The sleeves have tightening snaps above and below the elbows and waist adjusters to keep the jacket tight to the body. And the lower sleeves have zippers to snug them up at the wrist. Also, an extended lower back keeps the jacket from riding up. Power stretch action back materials around the elbows and upper shoulders offers the flexibility to make this jacket all day comfortable.
And there are pockets inside for placing flexible armor in the shoulders and elbows for added protection. Scotchlite reflective piping makes you more visible at night. The Knuck jacket also features a thin, full-length, light-weight zip-out lining. This is designed for those days when your ride starts in a morning chill before the hot weather of the afternoon.
Snaps inside the sleeves and at the lower back, keeps the lining in place when you take the jacket off. Now if you look up this jacket on Harleys web site, they dont mention the lining, but trust me, its there, and a great feature. And best of all, the jacket has some great graphics on the front, and a big Willie G Harley-Davidson patch and graphic on the back.
Its a cool jacket (pun intended), and it just may save you skin one day literally.
