Arrow WANTED! RIDING GEAR FOR TRIAL RUN THE 1st WEEK OF NOVEMBER '06

Greetings!

I never thought in a million years that I would have anything to do with riding a motorcycle or have a need for riding gear for that matter! However, my sweetheart, Brennan has a dream to ride from Miami to the tip of Argentina and back to raise money for the National Parkinson Foundation and despite my apprehension I would really like to have this experience with him and support his honorable journey too!

Which leads me to...the need for gear! As you all know proper gear is extremely expensive, so before making the large financial commitment I was hoping someone would be able to help me find and/or barrow gear for a trial run in the states the first week of November 2006...before I fly to South America having never been on a motorcycle and freak out! I live in San Diego and Brennan lives in Fort Lauderdale, FL - So, if anyone out there has a brilliant solution and/or suggestion I would greatly appreciate your words of wisdom! Please feel free to check out Brennan's Website about his journey! www.20thousandmilesforparkinsonsdisease.com

Thank you! Zoe - zoerussell6161@hotmail.com

P.S. I'm a 5' 8" - 150lbs woman...I tried on gear at my local San Diego BMW dealership and found the follow sizes worked best...Jacket - 56, Pants - 50, boots 40 and gloves size 6 or 7. I'm set with a helmet so no need for that.
