Jacket question

I just bought my first sportbike leather Jacket. I have previously worn my leather jacket I have for my cruiser. I bought an AGV leather jacket off of the internet. I was wondering how these are suppose to fit. When I am on the bike, the back of the jacket comes up and well, if I didnt have my shirt tucked in, somebody would probably run into me because they would see nothing but asscrack and probably be laughing there ass off. Are they suppose to ride up like that? I have a friend that also has an AGV but a little different look to it and I dont remember even seeing his belt. I dont feel like the jacket is too small because the sleeves seem to be plenty long enough and its not too tight.

pull your pants up!!!

my alpinestars jacket also feels short around my torso, though I don't think that short. Just make sure it fits snug on you so that in case of a crash your jacket won't pull and bunch up while you are sliding on the ground, since this will make the jacket ineffective in protecting you.

My leather pants have padding up the lower back so I can't really tell where the jacket rides. On the rare times I wear jeans I think it might be a bit high but can't specifically remember offhand. Check other local riders?

My jacket rides about an inch or two above my waiste line when I'm tucked in all the way, but I think thats the way they are suppose to be. If they made them looser so they would look right during regular riding, we would then have loin cloth looking things when we aren't on the bikes

Thanks for the reply guys. I checked out some of the local riders and they pretty much all look like that. Its funny how I never noticed until I got a jacket.
