Thank you to Serena Lancaster for providing fantastic information on the Held Ayana II one-piece ladies motorcycle leathers. Let’s hear what Serena, 45, has to say!
“I recently returned to motorcycling after a lengthy absence due to children and work commitments. My husband rides and during one of his (many) trips to motorcycle dealers I fell in love with a motorcycle. I have a full licence but at only 5ft 2” (nearly!) I wanted a bike that I felt would help my confidence return – and I could reach the floor on! I chose the awesome WK Colt 125cc mini-bike, from TT racer Gary Johnson at North Lincolnshire Motorcycles. A bit like the child of a marriage between a Ducati Monster and a Honda Grom!” Serena told MoreBikes.
“Next – my gear. Again, my height had to be taken into consideration. I needed something that worked with my size 12 (and a bit!) figure and also my height. I wanted an outfit that was straight forward to get on and off and simple to store and maintain.
I liked the idea of a set of one-piece motorcycle leathers – one bit of kit, slip on, zip up, go. No pulling the trousers on, doing them up over the boots, slipping the jacket on, doing up the waist connector, etc. The leathers would be easy to sponge down and treat too. I could also carry waterproofs and a thermal gilet with me for changes in the weather.”
