It’s like matching your bag

It’s like matching your bag to your shoes, except different, because…

…okay, it’s like matching your bag to your shoes.


I have a five-day road trip window in July. Also, Kate’s dad and I are going to ride up to a family wedding in Bar Harbor this August. So, obviously, it’s time to purchase the highest-quality, most bombproof, so-much-Cordura-and-Goretex-you’re-practically-an-astronaut-in-this-suit riding gear out there. That’s right, ladies, and gentlemen, I’m talking about the Hasselbad of motorcycle gear, the Aerostich Roadcrafter suit.


So, your thoughts about colors, please. I pinched the excellent Aerostich color selector from their site — roll over the colors below, then hit the “comments” button and let me know what you think. Remember, I’m going to be riding it on a teutonic black uber-bike with (hopefully) white pinstriping.
