Second-Hand Lady's Clothing Sought

Hi All,

I'm taking my new lady friend to the Tatra Mountains in Poland in August on my Trophy 900.

I've promised to buy her some riding gear but, as she doesn't know thus far if she'll take to life in the saddle, I don't want to spend loads on new stuff.

Has any one a half-decent used lady's outfit for sale? She's a petite size 12 (a Frank Thomas 'Lady Rider' outfit size LL was too big - if that's any clue).

I live south of London, so if someone in the south-east of England has something, that would be handy - but open to suggestions from anywhere if we have time to post, etc.

Cheers, peeps!

Simon

Whatever, there's no woman is there, you pervert.

Try londonbikers.com given your location and need for generic gear.

What a shame you missed the BMF show in peterborough - that's the best place for bargain gear.....
Can't offer anything myself but your best bet would be to advertise locally in a bikers cafe or local clubs as well as several forums such as this!
Good Luck and have fun on your journey...

Did you look on eBay? When I was looking to get rid of some of my old clothes last year I looked and found it was so cheap.. in the end I gave my old overtrousers and a jacket away to a colleague.
