    Just want to illustrate how some of the most underrated, cheap mall cowhide can turn out to look amazing if worn for a long time. This is a Canadian Sears jacket I’m taking apart. 2.5oz cowhide, nothing special, from the 70s. But the creasing is nothing short of what we all love here. [​IMG][​IMG] my Gibson Barnes Civil A2 in their pebbled cowhide is developing this creasing as well.

    The Vanson is still your coolest jacket imo. Not a big patch guy but love the look of these ones!

    Nice photo and nice jacket. Just be sure you don't leave it hanging out unattended. There are sad stories of jackets getting swiped from restaurants and bars.

    Well...The "BIR" patch with club on my left shoulder is leather, and custom made by Vanson, so I suppose it's appropriate. :D

    Which Bonnie are you going for?

    No regrets here.

    Sold my 2008 T100 to purchase a 2014 Scrambler, then sold the Scrambler to purchase the Speed Twin. This Speed Twin really checks ALL the boxes for me.

    I'm currently waiting on delivery of a Vanson waxed canvas jacket.

    Long story short... The jacket belonged to a fellow club member who had passed away but who's family sold off all of his belongings to an estate broker/reseller, rather than offer the club an opportunity to buy back any of his "BIR" marked gear before it had started to hit eBay and/or Etsy. We found this jacket coincidentally on Instagram, made an offer and the buyer was willing to sell the jacket back to the club for what he had paid for it; he didn't have to, and I'm eternally grateful for it. Stand up guy if you ask me.

    More photos when the jacket arrives.

    2017 T100. Was hoping for a 120 to get dual brakes up fron and the 6th gear but not a lot of used options popping up within 250 miles. Scored the T100 with 900 miles for 62% of new price!
    In the past i had an 05, a 12, and briefly a Thruxton (forget the year but it had the checkerboard motiff). Lately it’s been HD. Tried the street twin but the ergos felt a touch tight.

    Excellent choice! I’m on a 2018 T100 Black edition and preferred the handling / overall package moreso than the T120. Also more of a backroad rider than highway. That’s the only area I find the 900 engine lacking as it just doesn’t have the steam to cruise at 80mph

    Thats why i wanted the 120. I need to hit 90 miles of slab to hit decent riding. Here its 1/4 mile stop light to stop light.
