If you mean the Transition 2, if you unzip the jacket a little, from the bottom up, it won’t get in the way. I never needed to on my last bike (a Bonneville) but haven’t yet worn that jacket on my new bike (GSX650F) which has a wider tank. I’m certain it’ll work though.
I’ve seen these in the store and the yellow is a bright canary yellow (although yes, it does look Hi-Viz green in the thumbnail on that web page). I have the bright red one.
I love the classic (Schott Perfecto) style leather motorcycle jacket. They look totally cool, but they do have their drawbacks in that they usually have no armour and being leather, they’re a real pain in the posterior if they get soaked, no neck wind protection either.
You’ll probably wind up with (at least) two jackets, one (3/4 length) for the winter and one (“shortie” with mesh panels) for the Summer. That’s what works for me and I commute by motorcycle all year (no off-season). For hot weather, you can also buy “cooling vests” that you charge-up with cold water and they’re supposed to cool you on the “wet T-shirt” principle (evaporative cooling). For those, you’re not supposed to wear mesh as the water will evaporate too quickly. I don’t know how well they work, but apparently evaporative cooling won’t work in very humid climates.
‘ Doesn’t get *really* cold here, if it did, I’d use a heated liner vest. I do intend to buy (Tourmaster) heated gloves this Winter though. Last Winter I used “Oxford” heated grip wraps (which are a great comfort) but they left my thumbs freezing out in the breeze, so I’ll try the heated gloves this year.
Another great comfort in the cold is a fleecy neck tube to keep your neck warm. I’d say it’s been one of the best things I’ve bought since I started commuting by motorcycle. Balaclavas and face masks are good too, but the couple I’ve tried, don’t work well with glasses as they cover my nose, forcing my breath upwards thus steaming-up my glasses. Ah! The joys of motorcycle commuting
Anyway, I’ve found Tourmaster/Cortech to be decent gear at a good price
