Hey guys im looking at buying my first riding jacket, i live in tropical north queensland australia and its a very humid enviroment , i would be interested to here decent brands you guys have come across and some sites maybe ,
also im wanting to replace my stock exhaust, ive been on ebay and have come across a Screaming Demon exhaust which i sort of like . ive also come across the K4 street slayer short black exhaust aswell . have you guys come across these , any recommomdations. Im chasing the darker colour exhaust as im going for an all black bike.
I ditto the advice regarding personal preference by trying on. But, when it comes to exhaust, I recommend the Two Brothers. I use to get cut-off when I was seen and not heard. My bike cannot be ignored now and I feel safer.

+1 on the Icon Contra Mil-Spec. The wind really blows right through it so not a cold climate jacket, but I'm in California so those days are few. Still, the high viz was the deciding factor for me and catch drivers doing double takes. Exhaust still is stock and no plans yet for that.

thansk guys , i definately am going to look into the Icon contra, where i live it only gets to 23 degrees at night so i think it could be the way to go , i jsut have to find a dealer here where i live to try one on.
I live in Brisbane, and while it isn't as hot here as it is where you are, I find even meshy textile jackets are just too hot. I'd recommend a Motorcross jacket, the mesh ones with the plates of armour. Bikebiz stocks quite a few different jackets.
