Working with friends usually is frowned upon but not when your friends are Roland Sands. For almost a decade I have worked with the crew at Roland Sands Designs as an ambassador and overall supporter of the brand. Here's a look at the 2018 lookbook and a look back at the 2017 product shoot.Read More
Regardless of what type of motorcyclist you are you will at least need a couple of motorcycle jackets to get you through the seasons and diffrent riding conditions. I'm a collector of gear and believe that one can never have to many options when it comes to riding even if my bank account may disagree. Each one of my jackets serve a purpose. I have ones that are purely for functionality, some more for looks, one for hot weather, one for cold and another for rain.
Recently I put some miles through the California deserts on the Dainese Keira Lady Leather Jacket. Immediately I liked the style of it before I even took the tags off. The look and feel of the leather was soft and high quality and the lining felt luxurious. Once I put it on I was right in my assumptions as the jacket felt like a hug from an old friend. The fit was perfect and the materials, cut and leather worked in unison to make movement an ease. It felt like it was already broke in and it even has armor in it.Read More
Recently I got to test the new products that were launching in the Roland Sands Design Fall Line and while all of them were great the Ginger Jacket stood out the most simply because there's not anything else like it out there on the market. It's also very well thought out and constructed.
This women's jacket is a true utilitarian style jacket with just the right amount of femininity. It's made from premium British Millerain waxed cotton that is water repellent (great for me here in Florida), lightweight and has a soft and supple feel yet still offers top-notch protection.
The classic fit at 3/4 length allows this jacket to be very versatile and its fully adjustable waist means you can dial in the fit just right. Plenty of storage pockets on the Ginger for all the things you carry with you on your rides or pick up along the way.
I can see this jacket being worn by adventure riders as well as cruiser riders who want a more fashion feel on and off the bike.Read More
When I test a product I do my best to destroy what it is I'm testing. I ride hard, live life to the fullest and therefor I'm hard on the things I wear / ride. For the past two years I have had the Ugly Bros Twiggy Motorcycle Jeans in black and in that time I have about 20k miles on them. These jeans have seen tropical storms, been through a hurricane and have been in extreme heat and cold and other than some minor fading they still fit and preform just like they did when I got them.Read More
With more and more women riding everyday you would think that there would be more gear options available for us to buy and there are a few companies jumping on board but remember that we are women and that means we need a lot of options. Plus we come in a lot more shapes and sizes then men do. I also don’t think that we should have to sacrifice style for function and with a little effort we should be able to have both. I like to keep my feminine status while doing what’s considered “manly” activities so taking something that was made for a man and making it smaller will simply not work.Read More
