Here we compiled a list of affordable jackets from these various motorcycle apparel companies. You can afford personally, the price points range from about $100 to more than $400. Each jacket breathed well enough that it did not become clammy and most of these jackets have a lining or liner that the manufacturer claims is both breathable and waterproof. If you already have a jacket for cold weather, you may wish to select one with a mesh lining and body for hot weather. That may well suit your particular needs, but will not likely prove versatile for overall riding. Continue reading Affordable Motorcycle Jackets Buyers Guide

Indonesian Town to Make Female Passengers Ride Sidesaddle

 Motorcycle laws

New legislation put forward, “ban women from straddling motorcycles when riding pillion behind a male rider” by Lawmakers in a town in Indonesia. Women will still be allowed to straddle a motorcycle when she is the operator, in Lhokseumawe city; while they will have to ride sidesaddle. Officials say the new law will protect women from provoking male riders with their body positioning. A predominantly Muslim region “Lhokseumawe” is a town in Aceh, has been implementing strict Sharia law in recently years.

“Women sitting on motorbikes must not sit astride because it will provoke the male driver. It’s also to protect women from an undesirable condition,” Mayor Suaidi Yahya told AFP. “It’s improper for women to sit astride. We implement Islamic law here.”

Representatives from women’s groups are understandably against the new laws.

“We, the women of Lhokseumawe, strongly oppose this very discriminative regulation because it ignores the rights of women in conducting their daily activities,” says Safwani, the executive director of Ranup Women Institute tells the Jakarta Globe.

Including garbage disposal and stopping livestock from walking around uncontrolled on city streets, the mayor should be focused on much more urgent matters; Says Safwani.

“When you think of it, the cleanliness of the city is also in line with Islamic Shariah,” Safwani says.
