It’s still an uphill battle for women to get the same level of variety of gear that fits properly compared to men, but every year the market for women's motorcycle gear widens and progress is made.
The great weather doesn’t seem to have any end in sight, so if you’re looking for a new steed look no further than this checklist. The points below should ensure you stand the best chance of buying a bike without issues.
Summer is finally in full swing, and you may have been unfortunate enough to be in the position where your gear has turned into a sauna, even when you’ve been blatting along at 70mph. Obviously, if it’s mega hot there’s only so much you can do to stay cool, but your body does a good job of regulating its temperature when you’ve got some ventilation
If you’re a regular rider, whether or not you’ve had the misfortune of coming off, you (hopefully!) understand the need for quality protection. What if what you buy is not what it claims to be though? Chances are that if your purchase seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you were to go onto online auction sites, social media marketplaces, or other common, less regulated and reputable places on the internet, you can easily find helmets at prices that seem too good to be true.
People fall off motorcycles, it’s a fact of life. Unfortunately, it can hurt quite a bit, or even worse it can be fatal. Motorcycle gear is there to try and stop that, and the latest, highly effective innovation is airbags for motorcycles.

Bike Stop only recently started stocking Alpinestars gear this year, and it’s something that I personally have wanted for a while. They’re well-known for great quality gear that covers all budgets, and it all tends to look good on the rider. They do basically all the gear you could need apart from helmets, but today we’re going to look at their boots specifically.
You've decided to start riding motorcycles, and it's a big decision - not only do you need to get your licence by sitting several tests, you also need to choose a motorcycle, as well as choose some gear.
In this post I'm going to cover the pros and cons of the three major types of jacket and trousers it's possible to buy in 2018 - leather, textile and aramid fibre, or kevlar as it's sometimes branded.
In today's post I'm going to cover the relatively recent invention of kevlar and aramid fibre jeans. Technology is continually improving and now some pairs of these jeans are indistinguishable from high street brand jeans in terms of fit and look, while still providing protection in the event of a spill.
