T-shirt, vest or jacket when you ride

So what do you wear when you ride? A T-shirt, a vest or a jacket? I wear a t-shirt or a button up work shirt 98% of the time. If its cold, I wear a Carhartt coat and insulated bibs. I've been giving thought to a vest, and the one I want is a Lil Joes SOA vest. It used to be just a Lil Joes vest, but they renamed it after the show came out. Ive seen them in person, and they are extremely heavy duty, and a lifetime investment. Heres the website

So what do you guys wear the majority of the time?

Assuming the sun is shining on me and it's over 75 degrees just a tee shirt (pants optional). A tad underprotected if a groundhog or Mack truck hits me I know but it's a comfort thing. At night or in cooler temps my leather jacket (pants required). Up in the twisties (much of my riding) the jacket is a must for protection regardless of the temp.

Since my 3rd PlayGirl magazine feature article I've been known to ride shirtless on occasion.

[/SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] The mini-skirt is a very functional article of clothing. With it a woman can run much faster; and because of it she may have too.

I'm a leather guy, and no club association right now. Its expensive, but good craftsmanship cost money, whether its leather work or blacksmithing. Mind if I ask what club your in?

If it's chilly I just rock a hoodie. Otherwise jeans and a T. Used to wear shorts and a T but one morning I felt like I needed more padding so I wore jeans and a thick hoodie I had... Laid my bike down that day. Had it not been for the extra clothing I would of been real messed up.

and this is why I wear a jacket (leather or denim&kevlar) all the time! been down a few times, both have saved my ace! I don't care how hot it is, I'd rather sweat than bleed!

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!
