When most of us think of a biker, we picture a big, burly, scruffy dude on the back of a Harley. However, more and more women are joining the ranks of motorcycle enthusiasts. Now it is not uncommon to find a petite female biker among all of the more “traditional” manly riders.
Unfortunately, because the sport is still so dominated by men, most of the best gear and accessories are designed with them in mind. Thankfully, however, as the free market opens up to the fairer sex, more brands are catering to this new breed of biker.
If you’re a female rider or want to buy some new gear for your lady biker, here are the four best things to get for her:
- Jacket: While there is a limited selection of motorcycle jackets for women, the ones that you can find are perfectly stylish and high quality. The best part of having a good jacket is that it is both functional and stylish, so she can look good while being safe.
- Gloves: Riding can be tough on your hands, which means that you have to take special care of them. For women, since they typically have smaller hands, it can be more of a struggle making a decent set of icon gloves crucial to help maintain control of the bike. Plus, they will keep your lady’s hands warm and look really cool too.
- Padded Seat: When it comes to Harley Davidson parts, most of us think about a new clutch or tailpipe; something that is mechanical. However, comfort is just as important as performance, which is why a padded seat is essential for any woman who wants to go for long rides on her new hog.
- Helmet: Safety is always a priority, and a full-face helmet will help protect her head in case of a collision or wipeout (not that they are more prone to them than anyone else). In addition to motorcycle jackets for women, a strong helmet is just as critical.
Whether you’re just starting out or if you have been a biker veteran for a while now, you can still benefit from getting some high-quality gear. Make every ride count.
