Alpinestars GP Plus R Perforated Leather Jacket

I’ve only put a few miles on the bike as I wait to finish collecting all the gear I need to ride safely. I already had an LS2 helmet that I purchased when i started thinking about motorcycles and recently bought a new jacket.

The A* GP Plus R jacket fits very well and is the exact look i wanted in a riding jacket. I’m on the smaller side and typically wear as small as a 36R suit jacket from Express, but found the 38R in this jacket was perfect. I’m 5’8″, 145lbs, 30″ waist and medium build for reference. The build quality is excellent and in the short rides I’ve done so far, keeps cool as long as you’re moving air through the perforation.

I’m sure i’ll have more opinions on this jacket and all my gear as i get to use it for longer rides and determine how well it holds up – so far though, i’m very pleased with the fit, finish and overall look of this jacket.
