I recently bought my first bike (Kawasaki ER6N, woohoo!) after having a Vespa for a year. I’m now looking for some nice gear to wear and being 5.9", athletic build with monkey legs and arms I’m finding it hard to find decent motorcycle clothing that fits and looks nice. I’d like to wear something that’s practical but doesn’t make you look like bloke (excess fabric in the groin area, anyone?!) :unsure:
Not too sure about textiles but when it comes to Leather, whatever you get and if you need it adjusted in anyway then speak to Wasp (forum member on here) loads of praise for her on the Praise and Shame forum.
GirlsBike2, Get Geared and Hein Gericke is where I got all my stuff and I’m not a regular shape. I have a condition called Lipoedema so my limbs are over sized, finding kit that fits is a nightmare. I don’t have leathers, never have, although Wasp keeps telling me to buy some and she’ll alter them for me.
I tried gortex trousers but with no luck so I’ve been wearing Draggin Jeans for years and they’re great. I have a Gortex jacket though.
We’re off to Europe in a couple of weeks so I was looking to get another pair of water proofs to pull on over my Draggin Jeans and ended up finding a pair of Gortex trousers that fit pretty well. They’re 2 sizes bigger than what I’d normally wear, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers! :w00t:
I recommend Held, they make leathers to order and beautifully fitting two piece gortex too and an amazing extra light carbon fibre helmet for £200! The quality far outstrips any other kit I’ve used over the last 32 years of riding…and I am far from standard size…tiny hips, short and big boobs!!
Few outlets in UK but sizing chart is v good ( I order form book) and soon more outlets I hear…
