Women's Motorcycle Gear

Updated on July 16, 2011

Motorcycle

 I was never interested in motorcycles. I had personally believed that they were just meant for reckless drivers. That is, until I met my husband. He absolutely loves his sport bike. After my first extremely terrifying but ultimately exciting ride, I could then see why someone would want a motorcycle. So when I bring in my new love for motorcycles and my old fashion consultant experience, I now look at motorcycle gear for women.

Women's Motorcycle Gear

 When looking for women's motorcycle gear, you first want to decide on what type of motorcycle you are going to ride. My husband has a sport bike. However, there are cruisers like the Harley Davidson Motorcycles. What you wear tends to be different for each.

For a Sport bike, you tend to wear more tight fitting leathers where as with a cruiser, you tend to wear more denim and relaxed leather. Although either style can and is seen on either bike, this tends to be the traditional for either bikes.

My absolute favorite part is the helmet. The sport bike helmets have very interesting and beautiful designs. If you are going to search for a helmet, don't just pick the first one you find that looks pretty good. Browse a little more. There are so many designs for either the sport bike or cruiser and you want your helmet to define your style.

The other thing to consider other than fashion itself, is safety. Although motorcycles are fun and exciting, they are dangerous. My husband is the motorcycle safety representative for his squadron. There are quite a few motorcycles deaths each year in just the military alone. We think it is quite a stupid decision when someone goes on the freeway with a motorcycle wearing a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes. Do they realize what would happen? Either way, don't wear anything too thin. Make sure that you choose something that is safe.

      At least in California they have the helmet law. When I moved to Iowa there is no helmet law and it was very hard to get used to riders without helmets. I have been riding for 40 years and never get on a motorcycle without wearing the proper gear and a helmet.

      A friend of the families designed an off road diesel motorcycle for the military. :)
