Planning on buying a GSXR this spring, and trying to buy protection now to avoid all that money spent at once.

Any advice on jackets? I want the protection and warmth, but looks wouldn't hurt at all. I don't plan on buying leather, but I am willing to spend up to $400 for a good jacket that will protect my newbie-butt.

I've looked at Joe Rocket and Aero"something".

Father is a lifelong rider and trying to get me in the sport, but wants me to follow his footsteps I'm afraid.

Waterproofing would be ideal, but I'm also afraid my dad is correct about the need to buy two jackets which neither are great at warmth/cool at any season. Plan riding 3 seasons a year. I get so confused between mesh and textile.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If all goes well, I'll be buying the jacket within a few weeks.
