If you're a lady rider, then you're no stranger to the difficulties involved in finding motorcycle riding gear the fits your style, lends itself to decent comfort, and most importantly, provides adequate safety. Oftentimes you find yourself compromising on either one of those elements in order to sport complete gear. Either you buy something that doesn't exactly fit your style, but is decently comfortable and safe, or you get something lightweight, compromising a bit of the safety factor, but shines as far as style and comfort is concerned. The struggle is most definitely real, given that up until recently, the motorcycle industry has been predominantly male dominated.
Now, I'm no lady rider, but I do have a girlfriend I take around on rides. My mother rides pillion with me every now and then too. As such being the responsible boyfriend and son that I am, I want to ensure that the important women in my life sport the adequate gear necessary to keep them safe whilst onboard a motorcycle.
