When you were a child, did you ever have a favourite pair of trousers or a top that you would wear to death and never take off? Well, my MotoGirl leggings are mine. I bought them in February and I have worn them pretty much constantly since.
These MotoGirl Leggings are stretchy and come with knee armour and optional hip armour. They have pockets, loops for a belt and more importantly are completely lined with kevlar. This is unlike some biker jeans which only have kevlar lining on the main impact areas of the groin, hip and knees. The leggings can be washed at 30C on a delicate cycle.

So, I went to the London Bike Show at Excel last week. The Man says “get a new helmet for your birthday”, so I did. I went to the Helmet City stand and stood there for a few minutes. Being a shorter female I noticed that men who arrived after me seemed to get served first, until I performed a rather phlegmatic stage cough. Such is the required attention seeking methods I have had to resort to on occasion.

I suppose if I had been wearing tight leggings and a chest enhancing top advertising Carole Nash or MCN I may have gained more attention (although I suspect for all the wrong reasons). Anyway, once I had the nice Helmet City man’s attention I did receive good customer service. Continue reading “Schuberth C3 Pro Woman Helmet- Initial Findings…” »
Having fairly wide calves, I have found it difficult to find motorbike boots to fit, especially higher ones. Having had no luck on eBay purchasing cheap second hand boots I bought these Furygan D3O shorty boots from the MCN London Motorcycle show back in February.
The Furygan Jet Lady boots are a comfortable ankle boot, and although they do not provide the protection of a full length boot they are a good compromise, being both comfortable and having CE armour protection. They feature a waterproof and breathable Sympatex liner and a flap which Velcros over the upper part of the laces to stop them catching on the bike. I have worn them on long ride outs and also off the bike, finding them comfortable and easy to walk in. They work well with textile trousers which sit just over the top of the boots. The boots are low enough that they also work with leather trousers.
