Riding motorcycles is dangerous. You’re not protected from the elements at all, and you can really get hurt. Any rider who realises this and cares about her life will wear at least minimal equipment, and what you end up with isn’t exactly the most glamorous thing in the world! Helmets, gloves, protective ankle boots… l’equipee girls have had to deal with all that. Here are a few tips that have helped them stay both stylish and safe:
The overalls:We love all things retro. Louise B introduced us to these aviator overalls from the turn of the century. It’s an asset because it highlights the waist and cuts a nice figure. The downside is that bathroom breaks can become a bit of a problem.
Leather:There’s no way around it if you’re really on the road. Since the jackets have to be made of thick leather and reinforced at the elbows and shoulders, it’s quite a challenge to find nicely cut ones for women. But some brands do make close-fitting models, often in great colours.
Shoes:We can’t afford to compromise comfort or security when we’re on a proper road-trip. We found a good solution with these leather boots. Their only fault was that, since these are actual worker boots, we’ve had to go through a week of torture to break them in. We were even advised to soften the heel with an actual hammer! Luckily, the rough traveller look is quite trendy in Paris right now.
