I decided to go for the perforated C2 jacket after thinking I needed to expand my motorcycling wardrobe to cover a few more social options. At present I have an Alpinestars touring two piece textile outfit with removable liners which I use for commuting to work and an Alpinestars Atem one piece racing leathers which I had hoped to ride to work in during summer. Unfortunately the leathers get very difficult to get off once you sweat in them and the velcro'ed lining comes out when its sticks to the skin. PITA putting it back in all the time. So it has become Track Day or longer weekend rides for the time being. The textile kit isn't much suited to visiting people as you turn up looking like Nanook of the North. Hence the leather jacket and some textile/Kevlar jeans. I just think it gives more options like going to the movies, BBQs etc.
