She normally travels sitting on my headlight behind my screen.

It gives the passenger handholds. Especially good for kids and for males who are afraid to give the rider a good hug in turns.

I'm going to resist the urge to ask about your daughter

(especially if she's still a kid)

Thank goodness the Germans realize women come in more than one shape/size.
Totally worthless without pictures!!

I know we have ADV Rallies and ADV wrenching days. But why no posts with directions to "The First Annual ADV Tittie Stuffing Day"?

I bet you've already gotten lot's of invites but if you're looking for Boston intel or meet ups send a PM.

I give them a WIN for wearing more gear than the average cruiser rider we see.

FAIL for the highway pegs..................on the scooter.

With regard to the women's stuff, I just sent Shogani several links to the German suppliers' stuff in her size.

The three big outfits all have sites that speak English, and Louis ships all over the world. polo has the best kids' gear and is the least pricey. I personally wear Gericke and love it. Futz around, you will find things. It is almost all true to size. I fit between a 36 and 38 in everything, see below me in my 38 Lady Air Coldblack IV summer combo with Dainese boots.

polo

Hein Gericke

Louis

Me in Remagen, not being Carraciola
