What pops into your head when you hear “Icon Motosports”? Often times it’s armored vests, bright colors and loud emblems. Women’s gear has usually been cluttered with pink, stars, flowers, swirlies and countless other “frilly” things. Not anymore. Icon isn’t limiting themselves to elaborate designs, proved true with the Icon ladies leather Hella jacket. Walking into Cycle Gear as a new rider to check out motorcycle jackets, everything in sight was a bunch of crap. It’s like walking into a whirlwind of 80’s fine art snobbery full of bright colored shapes and… Continue Reading »
Hey MotoLady, I just bought my first bike and I’m trying to gear up the right way while still looking stylish. I’m in love with the Uglybro’s Twiggy and Ton-up pants but they’re made in Korea and kinda pricey. Know of anything great lady’s motorcycle pants sold in the states?
Bonjour! I actually got a pair of Icon Heartbreaker riding jeans with Kevlar reinforced knees a couple months ago and have worn them a lot (on and off the bike). I’ll be honest, I don’t think the photo they have does them justice. They’re boot cut stretchy jeans with thick knees, and they’re super flattering. Plus you could almost buy four pairs for the price of the Ugly Bro’s pants.
Gear update: Icon Reign Boots I feel it necessary to update on how the boots are fairing. I’ve had them just over a month, worn them 8 billion times, and taken them “off roading”. Okay but seriously, I’ve probably worn them 70% of the last month, on and off the bike. Plus yesterday they were worn gallumphing through mud on a trip into the woods to shoot some big guns. They did wonderfully. These are still the most comfortable pair of shoes I own, and one of the most protective. My Puma… Continue Reading »
Susan Carpenter reviews the Confederate P120 Fighter for the Los Angeles Times. This bike reminds me of the Ducati Diavel in mood. Like an angrier, more naked version. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)
Do I look excited? It’s because these are the baddest ass motorcycle boots I’ve ever had the pleasure of putting on my feet. Icon ”Reign” women’s waterproof armored motorcycle boots are $160 bucks, fully protective, and fully waterproof. They look good under jeans, over jeans, with motorcycle gear or with your daily wear. They are comfortable as hell, classy, and again… waterproof. They even have a velcro bit on the end of the zipper that makes them easier to grab, and fits between the closure at the top of the boot for secure… Continue Reading »
Photography by Kenneth Benjamin Reed, copyright Vorpal Images 2011. Funny thing about motorcycles, when you get one, you want two. When you get two, you want ten. Then one day you have ten motorcycles and you start to think about how to combine all the bikes into one bike. Not literally combine the parts into one bike, but take all the knowledge you have accumulated and build one bike that encompasses your vision of the ideal bike. The ONE Bike. (show website) On February 5th the night of “The One Motorcycle Show”,… Continue Reading »
