I love the smell of leather in the morning. Ok, I just love the smell of new leather.
Alpinestars newest addition for their Fall 2012 collection for women riders is the Vika jacket and pants. They're essentially an updated version of the popular Tyla 2 piece. They've also released a complementary pair of gloves and boots. I'm a fan of strong hand and footwear, so I don't know what to think of those. Hopefully these are more than 1.1mm thick for highway/heavy street riding!
Alpinestars generously offered this to me for review. I cannot wait to get my arms and legs into this outfit! From what I've seen, they've always done a fantastic job of gearing up women in incredibly flattering motorcycle gear. I haven't had any personal experience riding in their gear, so I'm totally excited to try this out.
Unfortunately, the flashy marketing ad that you may have seen on their website depicts a beautiful gold/cream combination that they only used as a marketing tool. So we won't be seeing that combo anytime soon. :-(
Stay tuned for first impressions as soon as she arrives....
