Why Doesn’t This Motorcycle Jacket Fit Me?

There’s a very good chance ya just need to bend forward a bit, bring your shoulders in and your tummy back.

Then voila! Your jacket zips up perfectly. Remember that proper fit is always in riding position; never standing up!

All The Motorcycle Gear All The Time (ATGATT) on a Budget

When you are considering purchasing a motorcycle, gear should always be in your budget.  You’ll need to carve out at least $1000 to find some of the more expensive, higher quality gear at lower prices. Although you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on race suits, or the most expensive leathers/textiles, you do need to spend more than $100!

Motorcycle Jackets with a More Generous Bust on Pinterest

generous_bust_womens_motorcycle_jackets

 

I’ve updated some of my Pinterest boards, and will be adding fit-specific boards such as:

  • long and lean motorcycle jackets
  • jackets with generous bust spaces
  • pants that run long
  • pants that run short
  • and more to come!

You do not have to be a member to view my boards, so swing by and let me know if there’s something you want to see. As always, you can find me as Gearchic on Pinterest.

Something else to keep in mind, especially for the first time gear shoppers is that even these jackets will be tight across the bust, no matter what. Nothing designed for riding is going to fit like your blouses so make sure that you bring your shoulders forward, bring the girls in, your torso back to get it to zip up. Then SIT ON THE MOTORCYCLE. This is SO important to make sure you’re not in the wrong size.

Ride Report, Bike Review and Pants!

Last week I went home to see my family for Christmas. Of course, I had to carve out some time to go riding on some of my favorite roads! Luckily, a wonderful friend of mine had this gorgeous little lady for me to ride up to Bodega Bay. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, except that I now know a Ducati Monster isn’t really in my future :)

Spidi Poison 2 Piece Suit

spidi_poison_womens_suit1

I wanted to share this fabulous pic of my friend India, sporting a brand new Spidi Poison 2 Piece Leather Suit. It’s the perfect 2 piece suit for your next track day, or day ride along your favorite twisties.  Everyone should have a 2 piece textile, and a 2 piece leather in their closet.

I would say that Spidi for the most part runs a little leaner, similar to Dainese in fit. I haven’t tried this one on in person, but am very hopeful that we will have some Spidi gear in the near future as well.

She’s sized in a Euro 46. If you’re interested in this suit, send me an email through the contact link on the left and I’ll help you get sized. :)
