Now I know we've had some heated debates about this sort of thing in the past But I was surfing through Ebay and saw this. Now I as some of you know I have no problem with how a person patches up their riding jackets or vests but I feel if your going to do it go to some biker rallies or just do some traveling and patch up your stuff with patches that reflect your personality and tells your story. Don't buy something like this.

Can't see it. At work will look when I get home.

Lots more riders on the road these days. Lots of different ways people express themselves and for whatever reasons? I don't understand any of it and enjoy looking at everything and trying to figure out why and how come?

New clubs popping up all over the place.

Each to their own,personally I'm with Eddie ,buy the vest and if you want to patch it ,fine,but get patches that mean something to you, or reflect your personality.too much is just mass produced. Biking is about individuality ,I reckon that's why most of us ride!

Checked out the vest, seems harmless enough. Cheap for sure. Cheap enough that it's a pretty good deal for the price.

Each one of those patches sells for a couple bucks at the swap meet. Add em all up and you get something for nothin'. As for the choice of patches, looks to be geared to younger riders.

As for getting any annoyance from it, Nah. If that's your preference, then more power to ya. My standards only apply to me and those I have expectations from. Usually pretty low when it comes to others, especially strangers.

As for my standards, I have a vest, cost me $40 bucks - 20+ years ago - down in TJ, Mexico. Still looks great, still, not one patch or pin - I like the clean look. So, to each their own. :icon_hat:


You can have it cheap.
You can have it fast.
You can have high quality.

That's what I've always liked about you RK. Your always so balanced. :icon_You_Rock:
Personally I'd be embarrassed if I decided to buy something like this. Then go to a bike rally wearing it and see 6 other jokers wearing the same exact thing. :icon_laughing: :icon_redface:

I hear you.

But it IS a good price.

Yeah, it's like buying an arrowhead
out of a 2nd hand shop window display.

It may be a good price, but it's NOTHING like
finding it yourself.

(Or making it yourself, in this case).

Thanks Eddie.
I guess if all six were standing next to each other one might notice they're all alike. But wandering around thousands of others they'd blend in. And I think that is this vests purpose, to blend in. I know a bunch of people that never owned a bike/harley and have their entire domiciles decorated with harley stuff. I once had one of those people ask me if the dual exhaust on my bike was real - is the second pipe a dummy? I replied "nope, only dummy here is you". We all laughed - he turned red and left. Looking back, I feel guilty for saying it. He was just uniformed. BUT - everything in his place was HD. For a guy like that, a vest like this is just what he'd get.

You can always tell the person that would buy a pre patch vest. They look nothing like the person that accumulates the patches over time and did the rides. Myself I don't wear a vest and have tons of patches and pins but wear none
