There are lots of other brands out there - Tourmaster, etc. so do some research to find out which one would be right for...

Longest trip in days = 7 days, 1500 miles in Europe this past summer with my daughter on the back... the Alps are... pretty incredible! :)

For me, I ride pillion due to lack of experience. I started out riding pillion, so it's my comfort zone at this point. So I still ride pillion with him. But someday when I have more experience, I'll ride my own bike with him. I see lady riders all the time. I hope to be like one of them someday. No...

Welcome to the wonderful world of m'cycle gear! :laughing: Yes, I feel like a linebacker in full gear but I wouldn't ride any other way. And imagine how tiny and petite you'll feel when you gear down for the day! ;)

Re: specific's for a nighthawk?

Thanks for the info, but does anyone know of specific items that fit a nighthawk? Most sites that sell equipment indicate they fit certain bikes and I've been unable to find anything stating it will fit a Nighthawk 250...

Re: tourmaster gear for women

Well I have decided on a motorcycle (Honda Rebel), now I just wait until a decently priced used one is for sale in my area. On to gear. Tourmaster jackets and pants like the Intake Jacket and Venture Air pants can be bought in both men's and women's varieties. Are the women's pants just smaller ver...
