Alot of the jackets/suits that I like have this full sized speed hump on the back. I don't personally dislike them but tend to think it is too racy for what I mostly do on my bike. That is, over the top for riding to work (even though speeds can get more than hiogh enough). I know there is supposed to be an aerodynamic advantage (less buffeting?) and probably crash protection, too.

What do you chaops think of such appendages!!?? Would it prevent you from buying a jacket/suit that you otherwise liked?

Take care - BB

That one is actually a reasonable size. Some of them are so much longer and voluminous.

Thanks for the pic - BB

If you are not on a racetrack and your jacket has a speed hump, you are a poser. Man Law!

I am looking at 1pc suits..

Some of them integrate great ventilation and a back protector into the hump.

If you have actually used the suit on track days you can also wear it on the hwy.. Man Law..

I will accept such an amendment to Man Law - provided said Hump is worn to a track day (on the track, not merely as an observer) before it is worn on public access roadways.

The Scribe Hath Spoken!

Hi,

My mate has the Tribal pattern Heine Gericke one piece with a detachable hump!! Removed after his pillion kept hitting it!

So it can be done!

I think they are a little gimmicky but look great on the right bike i.e. Daytona 955/675

Whatever YOU like and are comfortable with.
