  • Bike Jacket for me Girl

    Does anyone know of any good places/jackets for my GF.
    I have a Dririder which is great however I run hot and she runs cold so while I am happy with the DriRider its breeziness might be too much coolness for her. Is leather still good? I am looking for protection as she is a once a week/month pillion.

    Also any sales on at the moment? Yeah yeah, Pre Xmas

    Depends of what sort of money you are looking at spending. I personally love Joe Rocket jackets but leather ones start from about $600(including thermal lining) or so (well, last time I checked anyway) or there are now some nice Ixon textile jackets (most of which come with thermal lining but are generally pretty warm anyway) and they start from about $180ish. McCulloch's Suzuki in Vic Park have a great range of Joe Rocket and the bikes shops near the Causeway in Vic Park have Ixon etc etc. Check em out (if its not too far away for ya!)

      I have a Dririder suited wet weather and it is as toasty as. By the looks there are a few different models, so some would be a little warmer than others.

      My dririder is definately warmer than my leather jacket, but that is because my backprotector wont fit in my leather jacket if I have the lining in, not to mention the dririder is longer than my leather jacket, so there isnt a gap between my jacket and my jeans.

      Take her out and try some on.

      My personal preference is for sturdy double stitched leather (think Dianese and Alpinestars), but that is because I expect my gear to last for a couple of crashes.

      I tend to run cold, once I loose my body heat Im stuffed. In the winter, think about getting her some thermals - long sleeve top and leggs, it definately helps.

      When looking for gear, I check out all the causeway shops (the accessory place across from McDonalds and all the bike shops on the main strip) to see what is there, if you find something you like and dont like the price, you can always do a ring around or ask your favourite shop to order it in.
