    I hear you - I rarely see leather here and, yes, when I do it's likely to be old guys like us. Maybe we need an Under 40 and Wearing a Leather Jacket thread? That might be more unusual.

    Still breaking in the Vanson Comp' weight Ike. My most recent arrival and getting the "most love" currently.
    Both shots taken on this morning's cool start 7C Harley ride. With all my old mates of course.
    The trike behind me the rider is 90 ! Similar ( but not the same !) as photos in other related threads.

    I think between the 2, the PB is a clear winner considering it has flown on a bi-plane across the country.

    The Duke is a better fit. The Poncho is a little tight through the waist.

    We have Stearman Bi-planes in the sky today. This is the Stearman Fly-In week, though there are much less planes this year. It has been going on for nearly 50 years.

    Back to the Old Folks thread. Jacket and wearer meet the criteria. Maybe a Thread on jackets over 50, or in this case jackets over 80.
