How does it wear? In a word, great. And at a premium price of $549, it should be great. From the first time you put it on, it's like an old friend - it feels like it's already broken in quite well. And on bike, the cut of the jacket and sleeves is perfect, working on cruisers and other motorcycles with equal comfort. Another nice thing about the cut of the jacket is that there wasn't any sleeve flutter at freeway speeds. The jacket has a nice "heft" to it, not heavy, but rather substantial, such that within the jacket, you'll be secure from whatever the road has to throw at you - including the road. As it is an all leather jacket, once the temperature is up to the low 70s, it's time to open the vents, which are helpful for keeping you cool, especially at freeway speeds. On the flip side, you won't need the thermal liner until the weather drops down to at least the low 60s, if not colder. The jacket should be comfortable throughout the fall and spring and depending on where you live, maybe straight through the winter. The only nit we have to pick is that the zipper pulls could be larger for easy grasping while wearing gloves.
