Here I go bragging about a jacket when there's one great life less in the world...geez Mel.

Well for what it's worth, I'm sorry for your loss. And I agree. 57 IS too young.

Hi Mel - we bought my wife a Tourmaster Trinity Series 2 jacket from Crown Honda when they were blowing out their stock/dissolving the motorsports division. The jacket fit her nice, and has a proper feminine cut to it. Am sure if it fits you well you'll like it. Tourmaster (IMO) makes nice stuff.

I know the Men's Transition 2 is a pretty nice jacket, fit is a little on the small side compared to Joe Rocket or Firstgear. If you got it for that sale price then you did pretty well.

Cool. It's nice to know I made a good choice.

My next purchase will be the FLY Racing women's Butane pants.

Crown Honda just posted an add yesterday that they still have some clothing to move. All Motorsport product remaining is at 70% off. Not sure what they have but might be worth the trip.

Thanks everyone for the kind words about my friend Danny. He will be missed.

Mrs Backroader and I both have Olympia riding gear. One of the few manufacturers that guarantee the product to be water proof. Coat and pants both have removable liners.

Loved mine the first year...
Then I found it was too hot the second year, and started to leak.

Went there today and not much left in the store for men. A few pairs of riding boots and racing jerseys. There are still lots of riding pants and gloves for the ladies. It is getting to be slim pickings.

Parking in this damn city

This is to all of you guys.

I may be the one rider in this thread that has the LEAST amount of motorcycling experience, but in the short months that I have been riding, I've brewed a strong hatred for the way motorcycle parking is dealt with in this city. Mainly downtown, but in other areas as well. My beef is that we have to tie our parking stubs to our handlebars, which get stolen, then our bikes get towed, then you have to pay the towing fee even if you paid for parking. My suggestion is to have free motorcycle parking or something like that.

I'd like to send a stern email to the mayor but if I'm the only one that feels this way, I won't! Let me know what you guys think.

Great. It's gonna start with an email, but if they give me a bullshit answer I'll start a petition.

I don't disagree, but don't be afraid to get a little creative and hop a curb to get a cosy spot...

I often park in the bicycle parking areas downtown. Never had an issue with that. At my old work on Main street I parked in the alley behind the building, tucked in behind a telephone pole so I wasn't taking up any space and wouldn't be hit by the trucks loading and unloading.

I got a warning once while parked in the alley, All the motos disappeared for the season (parked elsewhere), and we all came back the next season with no issues.

Tips:
1) Look where other moto's are parked and park with them.

2) Go down alleys or behind buildings and look for a spot to tuck your bike.

3) Park beside/in bike racks, look for scooters.

4) Don't block a sidewalk

5) Don't sneak onto IMPARK property

I've only got a ticket once, and that was while using a bike rack within an IMPARK lot (strangely enough, also behind Tavern United) That was years ago, and I never paid, and they've never hunted me down.
