Top 10 Worst Motorcycle Fashion Fails – Two Wheel Fa…

LIKE any other activity, motorcycling has acquired its own subculture of fashion and clothing, whether it’s technical riding gear or casual clothing and accessories. If it sells, cycling brands will slap a logo on it and send it out the door.

And like any other activity, golf, football, there are some items of clothing and kit that are truly no-go areas in many people’s eyes. In this article, we take a look back at some of the most outrageous motorcycle fashion faux pas ever committed.

The Ten Worst Motorcycle Mod Fails

10. Replica racing jackets

You can see them at BSB, motorcycle events, car jumbles and motorcycle shows. You can spot them from a mile away because they have flimsy badges, the “Repsol” lettering is never quite right, and the leather looks about as hard as MPs’ spines. They are, of course, poorly made “replicas” of racing leather. Whether they’re one-piece or two-piece, they’ll probably give you all the protection of a leaky condom and are a surefire way to get a number of people snickering at you once you’re out of earshot.

Save your money and get some real skins from RST.

This was common a few years ago and you still see it now. You will most likely find this sticker on a ritter on a bike. More often than not, it will be painted at home using three cans of matchless matte black spray paint and someone will cut off the muffler – bonus points if they’ve used an exhaust heat wrap unnecessarily (see point 5).
