How to Put on a Race Suit

A helpful little video from Sofi Tsingos (with her cousin’s help)… how women put on one piece leather motorcycle race suits. 

This Yamaha R1 riding, AGV full face helmet having, one piece race suit wearing mystery motolady has bounced all over the internet and I can’t for the life of me find out who she is. 
Well, chick. Thumbs up to you for being decked out in safe gear, now go ride the piss out of that thing.

There are so many great pictures (and movies) with women on bikes in fantastic looking leather catsuits, but how come I can only find leather tracksuits with knee pucks and Power Ranger styling? Are there really no sexy yet functional catsuits on the market? — Asked by Anonymous

What?! You don’t want to look like the pink power ranger

Kidding. 

This is a problem women often find in the motorcycle industry- the functional stuff is usually hideous. And that doesn’t even mean it will fit right. They do exist, though. Leslie Porterfield (the fastest woman in the world) has a rather nice race suit.

What I need to know is, how functional are you looking for? Do you just want a leather catsuit that you could wear riding, or do you want a sexy leather race suit that has protection built in?
