I asked the "pants" question a while ago in the newbie section (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=41026
) and am still looking for this magic perfect fit, lol!
I tried a bunch by now just to come to conclusion that I will have to compromise at some point. I found almost perfect pair - Scorpion savannah pants. They are definitely the most stylish I tried so far and have a fit of the regular flair cut jeans but, boy, they are so low cut that when I sit on the bike my butt crack (pardon, girls) starts to show....And I am not too curvy. I just imagine more curvy girl wearing them, oh boy, men drivers will definitely be happy to follow you on the road, lol! Also, it is a super pain to put them on with the liner attached. Other than that they do fit nicely and the only ones that don't look like a snow pants and actually made for a woman. I say - nice try and yes, going to the right direction but I would say that it's made for a woman, not a woman rider, ironically!
Another huge issue for me with a low cut on this pants is that the jacket that comes with the pants is attached only in one point on the back with a flimsy strap that doesn't need much to open up, so if I go down, strap will open up and I will be riding on my very lovely lower back, grinding it to bones...no thanks. I don't like this kind of fashion, lol.
So, where am I going to compromise...hmmm... let see:
1. I want maximum protection - no compromise here - gear has to be padded with at least CE foam. I think that I am going to upgrade the protection pads to something more decent that will fit into designated for a foam pockets anyway. I ruled out all the jeans too, including draggin jeans. They really don't look to me too much of a protection or a good fit/fashionable in compare to other leathers or tex on the market anyway (I am speaking for myself, so, no offense draggin jeans lovers
2. I want my pants and jacket to stay one piece when I go down to save my lower back from road rush - that means that jacket and pants have to be from the same manufacturer so the attaching zipper match or to buy a jacket and pants from separate manufacturers and sew the whole around zipper so when I ride the lower back (or lower
) is not showing.
3. I want my gear to have a waterproof/windproof removable liner and to have good air flow through when needed/liner removed.
4. I want a nice fit to show that this is a woman riding.
So, what will fill the bill... I also thought that I probably want the gear to fit over my regular clothes too. So, ladies, I am going today to hit motorcycle dealerships in search for.....wait for it.....wait for it... one piece leather riding suit! They do those for women, fills the demands list above and if fit - should look smoking.
I will let you know how it goes and promise pictures if I end up with a one-piece leathers.
Wish me luck.
