[Please note that I have no financial interest in the following; I'm just another inmate here in 1130cc.com and wanted to share]

Many of you have probably seen these jackets on ebay and one or two here on our boards from individuals. I was gathering my shekels to buy one, but they have not been on ebay for a time, so I went to the source. What I learned is that not only can you can purchase them directly, you can ask for custom colors, directly from the seller in the UK.

If successful, I will attach a picture from them on a traditional looking Harley Jacket and several more pictures I took of the modern-looking Jacket that I purchased. You pay through Paypal and, depending on the pound/dollar exchange rate, it will cost a bit under $170 to your mailbox.

These folks will try and match your desired color (top of the orange over black traditional jacket) based on a picture you provide. I can't talk to the tradional jacket, but mine comes fitting very much in line with the same size Joe Rocket jacket; it has functional zippered pockets in too high a location; good wind flaps under the zipper; high quality zippers; armoring all around; good insulation that does not zip out; and the one other drawback - no ventilation panels or zones; this one is for days that are not really hot (unless you're with other V-rodders and need to show off).

Their email address -has been removed at vendor request due to previous experiences with large volumes of hoax mail. Please PM me if you want to open up a dialogue with them.

The jackets are made in Pakistan. Mine arrived at my doorstep barely a week after sending them the money!

Yeah and they run one to two sizes smaller then what they say
Not sure I'm in agreement with that; as I said, this XL is not more snug on me than my Joe Rocket, also XL and uparmored. I'm about 210 lbs, 6' even, and take a size 46 jacket. They are meant to be tight for those unplanned get-offs we will all be taking at some point...If you're concerned, I would suggest going up only one size.

I have one. But I agree with Vrod Kev. The guy I had bought from was local and had two. A large and extra large. My size is Med to a large. I left with the extra large. Also osn't there a size difference in what we call a large and they call a large overseas? Cool Jackets though.

Yes there is a size difference. I wear a large and my jacket in a 2XL. I could fit in a XL but the extra room is nice for layering.

Had mine made in Korea for $200, (no armor) custom fit to my measurements. Great for cool days.

Well I guess none of you will ever forget what model bike you ride. Nor will people in Low Flying Planes, Helicopters, 40 Story Buildings, people with 60/40 vision, etc...
May I ask "What would be considered "Too Much/Too Many of the same words on one garment?" Never even a "Slight "Twinge" of Embarrassment wearing those things? No one your with ever just stops you and says "Man really, you going to wear that to where we are going, Really? Can you at least take it off when we get there so I don't have to be next to Tron/ SuperHero man all day?"

That's humorous.None at all.
I would ride with ya all day Lux. I could brag to people, over a beer, how I won it off ya in a race. And that's why your stuck wearing that Beverly Hills label smokin jacket on the ride.

I look at wearing this jacket as an opportunity to expose a large swath of the public, who see "Harley Davidson" on the bike and really wondering why a bike with that name is blowing by them. After I pass, they get the opportunity to view the jacket "V-ROD" lettering from the back as I bring it up to warp level 7. It's all about boosting the brand, my brother. They's a lot of ignant folks out there, even many riding motorized bicycle conveyances.

To round out the ensemble, I wear it with a pair of signature Harley Safety sunglasses and Harley zip-up boots that have logo'd zipper pulls as well as logo metal plates on ankle, heel, toe, and tongue (6 per boot), just in case someone missed the jacket.

Blind.

Ok Ok very Very emotional all of you, Calm Down I know its HArd being a "Company Man" and all. What if the 2 old men who came up with the VROD name had gone with "Toaster" or "Digger" or "KY", "Fatso Blibo" or " Road Jammer", "Crematator", Vivisection etc...? I want to see a bunch of Toaster Jacket wearing people trying to look Tough!!!! "Hey I drive a Vivisection so screw off buddy"
One of My Favorite things (and I know it happens because Pascal used to Drape himself in VROD clothing) people still come up to you and ask "What Kind of Bike is this?" and of course being draped in the name "V-Rod" makes the person a bit Pissy and retort "Why Its a VRod of course" and 1 of 3 things usually happens next
1) "Oh is that what that means, I thought it was your name"
2) "Oh I never heard of those before, are they new?" (Completely ignoring your HD Traveling Billboard you are wearing).
3) "Oh so its a Vrod? Hmmm is that a Harley? Thats Not a Harley is it?"

all responses of course anger the billboard wearing rider.

I like the name "Toaster" better, Wish It was a toaster than you guys could call each other "Pop Tart" or " Engilsh Muffin" etc.. I like the Image of you wearing "Toaster" jackets because to Old Guys in a Frozen Office in WI decided it was a good idea. Than you could all go on "Breakfast Rides" etc..
I will say this though, You guys actually OUT DO any other HD rider as I see plenty of Harley Crap being worn everywhere but Never see "Model Specific" Harley Gear being worn by anyone.
Stewie is the VROD jacket:

Actually this has come up before again when Pascal had his Vrod Ensemble going 100% I would stand there and listen to people talk about how Goofy he looked as he went by. And He has the most Subtle of the Vrod jackets the Lonnie Jacket.
CAn we start a thread about the Ridiculous Giant Orange "V" Patches others tout around as if in an exclusive club? Hmm if it Where called the Vivisection you could Still wear the Big V but the Big T for toaster would be fun too.
anyone ever Notice that most the VRSC Names sound like Gay Porn Star names? "V-Rod", "Night-Rod" "The Muscle" "Night Rod "Special" (He is double jointed and can suck himself off), "Street Rod" (Only Plays a Cheap Street Walker Prostitute)? MAkes me wonder about those 2 old bastards in WI, I think we might find they like to Vacation in Thailand without the Wives.
