3/4 length jacket on the V Strom

I am looking into buying my first 3/4 length jacket (tourmaster transition). Any issues using this type of jacket on the Vee with the up-draft air flow catching under the extra length of the jacket? Someone on Webbikeworld commented on this..

Never, I have a 3/4 Fieldsheer I've worn the last few winters, absolutely great in cold and wind, way, way better than the waist length jackets I used to wear. We got my wife a 3/4 jacket a couple winters ago too, she wouldn't be without it on chilly wet days.

I'm never without my 3/4 Motoport coat (super coat!! by the way) - absolutely sweet on my Vee - no problems at all.

Cheers, Jock

I concur with the above, I prefer 3/4 sport touring jackets and they work well with the strom ergos.

I have the Tourance 2 and I love it. It's length has been appropriate for me.

+1

I have two. One vented, one for more foul weather. The pillion ditched her short jacket in favor of a 3/4 jacket as well.

agreed

I agree re the 3/4 -- using "Made 2 Ride" and "FirstGear" -- both excellent. Hardly use the short jackets at all. U wanna buy them...?!!
