New Riders

by Cole & Casey

My wife recently bought a 2005 Suzuki C50T (promises to let me ride it occasionally, too).

Just finished our MSF course and got licensed. Now we have a couple of months of parking-lot practice then we will hit the easier roads. Which means....we're looking for gear. Specifically, she wants a ultra-classic looking double-breasted leather, black, zippers, visible belt at the waistband....find em every where kind of jacket. But since its us, we gotta make things complicated by wanting something that seemingly cannot be had. She wants all that...with internal armor. (sheesh, form AND function...so demanding hahahaha)

We've shopped the Internet and have only found two that come close...but still miss the target.

Do you have any suggestions?

Check out a place on line called motorcyclegear.com used to be newenough.com I have purchased several things from them jackets helmets pants gloves you name it, they have great service and prices, and the one time time I got the wrong size (I needed a smaller one) they exchanges it with no hassle.

Hi..is the bike a touring or sport? Scorpion makes a great jacket with armor...usually they are geared for sport bikes but I found one that fits my bike and me and the armor is removable. Keep us posted...Motorcycle Super Store has a great selection. Good luck.
