Standard jackets are a dime a dozen, aren’t they? Off-the-rack styles can be seen walking down the street on virtually anybody. None of them really stand out or display any type of personality whatsoever. At the same time, they fall miserably short of exhibiting all the aspects that truly make you unique. Designing a jacket capable of shattering the run-of-the-mill stereotype takes passion and creativity typical manufacturers just don’t have.
At American Legend Rider, we’re here to help you make a break from the norm with a broad selection of jackets for men and women that are sure to let your unique personality shine through. Each one is distinctly designed with the needs and hearts of bikers in mind. Because of this, our 2019 jacket lineup encompasses some of the most universal characteristics of the biker community.
Winter doesn’t quite mean the same thing for every country or even every corner of the United States. While the northeast may experience extreme cold, the south might barely see any frigid weather at all. Elsewhere, Siberian winds send winter temperatures well below the freezing mark. Either way, our jackets are perfect for every season whether you’re on the road or simply waiting for more ride-friendly weather.
Feel free to check out our jackets and other exclusive biker gear, including helmets, vests, footwear, tees and tanks and women’s leather pants to name a few. Our prices are shown in USD, and clothing ranges from small to plus sizes based on American sizing standards.

Being a biker takes on a wide range of meanings for different people. To some, it’s simply owning and riding a motorcycle. Others believe it means being a member of a rough, headline-making gang. Those who hold fast to those opinions simply lack understanding.
For the most part, the term “biker” refers more to a state of mind than appearance. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t necessarily mean being a rebel. Tattoos, smoldering hostility and hairstyles like pigtail braids and pompadours have very little to do with the actual biker persona. They’re media-driven labels those on the outside mistakenly take for reality.
As opposed to what some people might tell you, being a biker doesn’t even have anything to do with whether or not you choose to wear a helmet where laws allow otherwise. It’s not based on being able to change gears smoothly on a new Harley. None of those elements really matter in the grand scheme of things.
Actual definitions of bikers hold no specific bounds and certainly have no narrow-minded parameters. According to the dictionary, a biker is simply someone who rides a motorcycle. While that’s certainly a necessary piece of the puzzle, it’s only the tip of the iceberg. Not all who ride qualify as bikers. Some are simply motorcyclists.
An unbreakable bond exists in the biker community. It’s truly a brotherhood, and those who live by its code are in a class all their own. Seasoned veterans of the community welcome newcomers with open arms and show them the ropes. No one has to work hard at fitting in; being part of the club is as simple as showing respect to others. Everyone is united in an always-help-your-fellow-man state of mind, and no one is left out of the mix.
Some motorcycle clubs have their own requirements in this department. They’re devoted to specific manufacturers whether they be Harley, Honda, Indian, Yamaha or another brand. Generally speaking, though, they consider riders of any model part of the brotherhood and won’t turn up their noses at a fellow biker simply because of the emblem on his or her bike.
No one is barred from the biker community because of what they do for a living or how much income it generates. Whether a person has the financial means to purchase a brand new, top-of-the-line bike every year and the latest gear to hit the market or can barely afford to fill the tank for the next ride, they’re treated with the same level of warmth and respect.
Not everyone can ride a bike all the time. Motorcycles aren’t the best forms of transportation when it comes to buying groceries or being part of the elementary school carpool roster. True bikers fully understand riding sometimes has to be a part-time adventurer. As long as you remain true to the Brotherhood state of mind, you won’t be ousted because of how often you ride.
Black leather has become synonymous with the biker community over the last several decades. From jackets and vests to chaps and boots, menswear and women’s biker attire routinely revolve around this natural, durable material. Though it offers ample protection, makes a perfect canvas for patches and happens to look good, it’s not actually a requirement.
Dressing for the ride isn’t about making a fashion statement. It’s a matter of covering yourself and being protected from the elements. Having an extra layer between you and the road (or you and the bike as the case may be) should you go down is also crucial.
Jackets and long pants are standard protocol no matter what type of material they’re made of. Shorts are never a good idea when riding unless they’re worn underneath a full set of chaps. Ask a seasoned biker what type of footwear he or she recommends, and the answer will inevitably be boots. Flip flops just don’t cut it, and sneakers almost always come off riders’ feet when they crash.
All this brings us to the expansive selection of designer clothing, protective gear, and accessories here at American Legend Rider. From helmets to footwear and everything in between, we have you covered from head to toe and beyond. Made of a premium polyester blend, our biker jackets offer all the features riders want, including:

Being a biker isn’t about fitting into a certain stereotype or having all the latest gear and accessories. In fact, it’s more about breaking from the norm and following your own path. After all, in a world filled with far too many sheep, the best thing you can do is stray from the herd.
Still, you do need to be dressed for the ride, and we offer everything you need to protect yourself on the road while expressing your own unique style. We even have a vast selection of items for dressing up your bike so it can become even more of an extension of your inner self.
As a certain self-made expert biker says, “A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.” There’s plenty of truth in that statement, so view our inventory today, and gear up for the ride!
