Clothes in Colombia

Hi Community,

I`ve got kind of a funny cuestion. I`m travelling right now in Southamerica for six months on my old XT600. Very spontaneus my girlfriend from Germany decided to visit me.
She wants to experience what I experienced... (she doesn`t know what she`s getting into! )
Still as she brought no Bikingclothes I`m looking for some for her around here.
Does anybody know a place or somebody who can sell me cheap or rent me some clothes and a helmet? I`m not looking for anything fancy, just something that will protect her in all the falling we will most probably do...

I know its not the best organisation from my side, but still I would really like to make this trip work (If she likes it, maybe she`ll come with me next time... )

Right now I am close to Yurimaguas/Peru and I`m heading for Bogota in a few days. Just so you know, where I can look for it!

Hope you are able to help me!
thanks!

There's plenty of everything in Colombia. Several companies sell all sorts of locally produced good quality accessories and riding gear and imported stuff is largely available in most bigger cities.
