Delicate Subject

by Skitta
(Ontario, Canada)


I recently started riding (still in the practice stage, really). I've notice that after riding for a bit or when the weather is warm, the crotch of my pants feel "damp"; very uncomfortable. I'm wondering if other women riders experience this and how they overcome or deal with it.

Thanks in advance.

Change your undies...I mean the type
by: Shannon

I am a dirt rider and I get that "not so nice" feeling too.... and you stand up a lot in the dirt!

What I have discovered works really well is high performance undies or spandex. Stay away from cotton when you are riding because it keeps the moisture at your skin and causes that lovely scent. When I dirt ride I wear my work out spandex under my gear. When I ride the street I have some REI "high performance" undies that wick the moisture away from the body. They help a lot!

Ever see riders stand on their pegs? Well, that's not just for hitting bumps, its for a little air.

I've seen anti-monkey-butt powder - never used it. Glad to see an endorsement here. I do have some cornstarch based powder. Just stay away from talc, it has been linked to certain cancers when used regularly in female nether-regions.

I have a leather sargent seat on my Ducati and ordered one for my fz6. IMO, leather is a better saddle choice because it breathes! I wear Under Armour compression shorts and my riding pants,

On long road trips, I don't leave home without my Anti-Monkey Butt powder. That's what it's called, you can get it at most motorcycle shops or the hunting dept at a place like Gander Mountain.

Sweaty Britches?
by: Anonymous

You might try a little sheep skin pelt for your seat. In the summer it keeps your legs/buttocks from getting sweaty against the vinyl of the seat, and also keeps you cozy in the winter. Plus, it is softer on the butt bones on long trips. I have one with a gel seat under it that I use year 'round for those reasons. Discovered it about a year ago. Also, you might try using a little cornstarch babypowder, it might help dry up the moistness. Hope this helps... Happy Riding.
