     The Honda Licensed Repsol GP Textile Jacket is an essential accoutrement for any aspiring-to-be-well-shod racer wannabe. The Honda Repsol GP Replica is well-made, well-cut, comfortable, functional and appears to be pretty durable. Just don't get it dirty - the white is hard to buff back to immaculateness after much exposure to dirt. 

     The Honda Repsol GP Jacket is licensed by Honda to several distributors including Joe Rocket, Tucker Rocky and Teknic. It is manufactured by Parker Synergies
Fit, finish and function are par for the course for generic jackets. The looks, however, are stellar. The Repsol colors are very distinctive and the jacket extrudes racer boy chic.
     I purchased the Honda Repsol jacket for my national TV debut on the The History Channel show "The Works - Motorcycles" (as the token rocket scientist). I'm sure that it took at least some of the edge off of my ray gun cachet. I blame the folks at Parker Synergies not one bit for the fact that I have yet to receive as much as a single piece of fan mail - even if I am actually a little bitter about the whole thing.
