Short Riders - gear, bikes, etc

I don't know where to post this, so here goes.

One of my best friends is 5' and has always thought riding was out of question because he couldn't reach. I know experienced riders can handle just about any size bike, but I certainly know the difficulty of trying to learn on a bike with too much weight and height for you. the new Honda cb300 got him interested, since then we've found few other bikes with low seat height or lowering options. Things are looking quite possible now.

With a bike in his future he's started looking for gear. Which has been pretty tricky. He mostly wear's youth size clothing but of course most "youth sizes" are for people not old enough to ride on the road. So not a lot of road gear.

I even suggested trying womens gear because it will most likely be available in smaller sizes..but might not fit in some areas!

So I know there's other shorties out there, what stuff are you guys wearing and where did you find it?
