Default Harley Trench coat

Does any of you wear them on the bike? If so, tell me more. I think they look good.

Have buddy that used to wear one until it got caught up in the pulley and belt, it yanked him right off the bike and slapped him on the pavement along with his night train. Luckily he was able to walk away scraped and bruised, had to cut the coat to get him untangled. His bike was in about the same shape, thankfully he was cruisin through town when it happened and he was only doing 25 to 30 mph. no helmet, no gloves, hard lesson learned!! I say forget about wearing a trench coat while out riding, just my 2 cents.

Cool

In the "old" days you'd untie it from bars and wear it while you hugged the front tire till ready to ride again. Short bed roll, ride naked

I think you;re looking for a duster, not a "trench coat". LOL

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duster_(clothing)

They are split in front and back with straps so that you can wrap them around each leg while riding.
