Ah the boots!!! Yes I love those boots. I wear them when we are on the Harley because the slip on and off easy and have no heel and are super simple. I ordered them from DSW for $35 2 years ago when we were riding across country from Sturgis. They are called zigi soho boots. I can't find them online right now but if I do will send you the link.

Thanks for the compliment about the pic. I do pole fitness and couldn't resist jumping on a pole when I saw one in Daytona :-)[/QUOTE]
Thanks I think I found them Sold Out

Anybody else having trouble finding plus size gear? I just ordered some 19/20 pants from Girls Moto Gear, the only pair I could find with google. I don't mind wearing a men's jersey or XL for women usually is fine, but finding pants is a pain! Advice? Besides weight watchers? (actually, working on it)....but in the meantime.........

I'm a 'fluffy' gal, myself, and I find men's riding pants work just fine for me. I guess my waist to hip ratio isn't very womanly. But I agree with you - finding women's riding gear when you aren't a size 6 is a royal PITA..

Oh, and in your helmet, no one can hear you sing, either - unless your comm system is vox activated!

I ordered the one pair I found and if they don't work I'm hitting the men's section. It's funny you mention singing, I did a lot in my helmet this summer when I was touring by myself......You get quite the effect when the sound is bouncing back 3 inches from your face!

When you bought the men's did you buy according to waist size?

Have you been to Chaparrel and tried stuff on? They have a big selection of gear, men's and women's. The pants I wear are men's pants also, I like the way they fit better, the women's pants tend to fit too low on the waist for a woman "of a certain age" (me) particularly one who isn't skinny

I wear men's pants too even though I'm heavy and very curvy. In normal clothes there is no way I can wear men's pants and I can't wear men's motorcycle jackets but the pants seem to be cut differently. I find Shift gear fits me well especially the enduro pants for dual sporting.

Thanks all! I'm hoping the ones I ordered fit, if not it's off to the men's section! I'm going to be buying a xt250 - my first foray into dual sport. I'll be posting some more about gear - I'm clueless about dirt gear other than a lot of pads for various body parts. I did discover that knee pads would be nice if you dump over your road bike (I skinned my knee through my jeans)


I found one website that carried gear for abdominally challenged men, be nice if somebody realized that women of a certain physique like to ride too!

To all of the fluffy women who need pants

I found this company called motosport that makes custom gear - it's brutally expensive, but looks like really nice stuff with a lot of options. The best part is they make to fit. We'll see.....

Here's a semi/custom women's one piece suit:

$900, but built to fit you. Just saw a comment a week or so ago that they were headed for 2pc of the same standard.
