Tourmaster Transition 2
For my first jacket I bought a Tourmaster Transition 2 in hi-viz on sale from Westside Motorsports at the Spokane show in February. I'm still getting used to it, but I love how comfortable it is and how warm it keeps me on these chilly spring days here in Wash. state. About the only thing I've noticed is that because the jacket is bulkier than a normal jacket around the shoulders and neck, there's a bit more effort to turn my head checking traffic. Other riders I've talked to say that's normal for most motorcycle jackets with armor. As far as length goes, with the overpants I wear (and as short as I am) a 3/4 length would be overkill and less comfortable for me. I'll find out as the weather turns warm and I remove the liner how it feels on hot days with the vents open.
