The exhibit, which opened on October 19, pays homage to iconic leather jackets that became part of the image of the tough American biker. The motorcycle helmet became a popular choice of outerwear for both men and women of the United States for several reasons.
First of all, high-quality leather jackets can help the wearer endure difficult weather conditions like rain, cold, and wind. Leather jackets can also protect the wearer’s torso and arms if he or she falls off a bike. These qualities make a good jacket and an enthusiastic biker a marriage made in biker heaven.
