Lots of RAF fighter pilots (like a lot of fighter pilots all around the world) had/have a huge love of speed.

I have a wonderful photo of Tony Gaze, the Aussie Spitfire ace who went on to become a professional racing driver, wearing his Irvin from the war at the 1953 Monte Carlo.

So the assumption is that he's half-dressed for motorcycling. But maybe he wore the jacket for flying.
