    Can I borrow someone's bike gear?

    And no, its not because I have a weird Leather sniffing fetish or because I want to ride round in Drag....

    Long story short - After much Nagging, I may have persuaded my Wife to come pillion with me (Yay!) but she is unsure and doesn't want to splash out on the cost of Bike Gear unless she likes it and feels safe.

    So, I thought I would ask if there are any ladies who either have a spare set of gear or wouldn't mind lending a set out - as I am an ATGATT Nazi, I would be looking for Helmet, boots, Jacket, Gloves and trousers. Obviously gear would be lent on the basis of We Bin it, We bought it and I can also ply you with Wine as a Thank you.

    I have a date in mind for when this would be, but no point in working out the finer details if no one is keen.

    Happy to be PM'd if you would prefer to talk about this type of thing not in public.

    It may help if you give an indication of size.

    Not sure on Helmet size

    Gloves are an Alpine Star Small
    Boots are a US size 9

    I will have to get the waist sizes - I would guess the Jacket would be a women's Large?

    Do you Lasses know if there is an easy conversiony chart thing where I can put in her Dress size and it will tell me the appropriate leather size.


    Also - In addition to the offer of Wine based bribery, there may also be chocolate.

    You dont know her waist size and you are calling her large. Boy are you in trouble if she reads this thread.
    For a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. Keep an open mind, just dont let your brains fall out.

    Unless it's a leather dress, with armour...no.

    I have some gear that I don't fit anymore ...
    Sidi Leather Jacket 12/14 -
    Revit Textile Pants 12

    And I have
    Revit XS Gloves - faded but still good working order
    HJC XS good condition

    Got a GIVI size M or 57cm flip top lid in a girly colour you can borrow.
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    He's from Gore.




    In (or near) Gore ... "Lady" size is deemed as unimportant ... for good reason.


    You'll have a better chance of getting a root ... and a better chance of her making you breakfast ... (win win)
