A good leather motorcycle jacket is like a good friend¦ it will always have your back. When considering what type of leather biker jacket to purchase, a few things need to be considered. You’ll want to start with the style of Leather Motorcycle Jackets & Leather Biker Jackets that will suit both your riding style and your personal style. A classic motorcycle style jacket with a spread type collar is perfect for those who ride a touring or cruising bike or even a custom chopper. For those that ride sport bikes and crotch rockets, however, you would be ill advised to wear a classic motorcycle James Dean style leather jacket as the function and look of the jacket does not match the riding style or looks of a sport bike. Owners of street bikes prefer the sleek look of a collarless or euro collar jackets with snap buttons as opposed to the spread collar of a classic biker jacket.
