How Your Biker Vest is Similar to a Canvas

By Vicki Firth

When you think of American bikers what's the picture you conjure up in your imagination? Plenty of people would admit that the image in their head is of a middle aged man covered in tattoos with a biker vest and long hair.

Although there are plenty of people who would see a biker jacket and chaps on their biker, most people think of the vest as a typical item of clothing worn by serious bikers.

One of the best things about the biker vest is that it is like a blank canvas for all your biker artwork and patches. For example, if you belong to a motorcycle club you can't very well sew your club patch to a T-shirt and expect it to last for a long time.

T-Shirts are too flimsy and easily worn out to make it practical. You could always put your patch on your leather jacket but when it gets too warm it would also be impractical. To compromise, the biker vest is the ideal choice.

Regardless that there are no sleeves, there is still enough room for artwork and patches on the vest. Using your vest you can advertise your political affinities or you can use it for military designs or raunchy humor for example. Large patches look great on the back of a biker vest while the front is the perfect place to position smaller patches and artwork.

The great thing is that you should be able to find many patches that you will love whatever your personal tastes are.

The biker vest is probably not something you will use if you ride a sport bike. But if you're riding a street or touring machine, especially if it's a Harley, you've got no place on the road without a leather biker vest. It's an accepted part of the uniform you are going to need before you're considered a true biker.
