When you get a tear in one of your motorcycle jackets, you might think that the jacket is ruined and you either need to get a new one, or wear one that is ripped. This is not the case. A jacket can be repaired. They have leather repair kits that can be used to fix the problem. Just purchase a kit, get a toothpick, and some newspaper. The newspaper is to lay down over the surface you are working on. The toothpick is for applying the adhesive to the jacket. For full details on how to make the repair, Melissa Busse of eHow explains it all.
