I got all my gear at Honda of Houston (West Rd and 290) but they are right around the corner from me. They do have a fair good amount of female gear though.

Motorcycles Unlimited (motorcycles unlimited) gives discounts to MH people

And if I remember correctly they had a pink and black jacket in there I THINK... either way go up there and they can point you in the right direction and right size.

My first suggestion would be to call Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited.
They have a line on most anything to do with bikes. I bought a racing leather suit there and they gave me a price that was as good or better than what I found on the internet AND I got to try it on before buying.
Ask Carbon R 1/2, I think she has bought gear from them.

Get with Suzanne at Motorcycles Unlimited and they can order you any jacket. Just b/c they dont have it in the store doesnt mean that they cant get it.

I would only buy Fieldsheer or Alpinestars for jackets.

Gloves - teknic or alpinestars

What else are you looking to buy?

See if there's something you like.
Then go to or call Patrick or his wife and ask if they can get it for you.

if you ever plan on doing track days I would go with the teknic 2 piece leathers... I went down in them and they held up great and you can seperate them and wear just the jacket on the street if you chose to.

My street textile jacket is Alpine Stars.

Gloves, I prefer the Joe Rocket GPX, super-soft and worked great in my wreck. The Joe Rocket leather jacket also held up well.

thats because you have to ask them about jackets, then they will size you, show you your choices and order it for you simple as that.

My sis and I both wear MotoGP jackets. They don't make xs, though, so mine's a little big-

Try on ALL the jackets you come across, so you'll have an idea what you like/ what size to get. I bought mine online and on sale-

+1 about the gloves- get good protection.

My ER Dr. Daddy says he doesn't see many leg injuries on bikers, so your jeans are fine, but it never hurts to wear leather pants or extra pads. Also, wear motorcycle boots, or buy ankle/shin guards to wear under your jeans-

Because you're spending so much on this, don't buy something because it's cheap or on sale- you'll regret it later- get what you want the first time.

Good Luck on your shopping! Personally I don't think they have any great gear for women just yet. Meaner and I have discussed our own line - feminine AND functional!

Ok Jlo, let's clarify something for the readers....

When you turn your head to check the side lane and your helmet moves to the side from wind pressure and covers your eye.... its too loose....

That said; I guess my spare jackets are not becoming of you(or maybe it's the permanent stench I've embedded in them.)

I'm a fan of JR, if you come tomorrow to the M&G w us you'll see SiS's Jacket; its all white, girly fit, blah blah...


As I tell you every ride- Can't always control when you're going down, but you can control what the parametics will be pulling off of you.

Happy shopping....
