Kawasaki/Dunlap Joe Rocket Mesh Racing Jacket

Finally! A Kawasaki mesh coat. They are always Honda or Suzuki usually. $52 incl. tax :-)
Oh man it feels good in LA with a little breeze after the textile jacket. The textile jacket has mesh zippers all over it, but what a hassle. Hurray for Motor Helmets and Joe Rocket (both of my coats, Airborne Ranger and Kawasaki/Dunlap :-) , the good coats for big guys on a budget (on close out sales)!

I bought that same jacket only white (not green) from a guy on here, and I have to say it is a wonderful late spring to early fall jacket. The liner keeps you warm, and without it you get great airflow. Good stuff right there.

What a deal!

I couldn't find them on their webpage, did you get it locally?
Thanks,
Dan

Yeah, it was their last one :-) I get a lot of work on my bike there, and they give me REAL good deals all the time.

My eyes dropped out seeing a Kawasaki anything. They said they were holding it for someone, but not holding it forever at a price like that. SOLD, with a smile!

I'm just glad they had it displayed on a hanger behind the counter. It is nice and visible coming from the rear with white jacket front while lane splitting. My red and black Airborne Ranger Joe Rocket jacket is a little more subliminal coming up from behind. In that case, I use my horn a lot more: but I'll use it in a heartbeat either way

I bet the all-white one is the ultimate high-visibility jacket! You pick up on subtle differences splitting lanes within inches from shifting cars that don't use their blinkers. It's only a minority of them, but it's the one's you remember and cuss at!

I'm one of Kawasaki's escort riders for the demo events and we had that exact jacket for three years, with the liner it worked great
even in the Rockies! They all held up fine, wish I could have gotten a smoking deal like you did for personal use.....that was
quite a bit cheaper than our cost.
Good Buy!
