    My partner is very keen we get our planned Piaggio MP3 500 but seems to be on another planet (compared to me) when it comes to what to wear.

    So, for those of you with lady passengers, apart from a good helmet, what does (or should) a lady wear on the back of a scooter?

    Fashion tips and particular brands/syles are most welcome! lol

    Depends how good a driver you are.

    Rubber knickers may be a good idea, save washing the seat.

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks, that's very helpful. As there is quite a range, can you tell me which one she's got?

    Anthing from the d-dry range is good quality and very warm it olso has zip in out body warmers
    Plus all body armour is removable this is what we do when on trike
    but it all goes back in when on bike
    Be carful what you buy all this industry is rife with leathal Chinese copy's

    They look really good Peter. I've shown them to Sheila and she likes them. Thanks for sharing.

    As already mentioned, decent quality textiles .. I would urge you NOT to buy anything on the internet.
    Why ? Same reason as I never ever sold bike related clothing on any of my web sites..
    A poorly fitting clothing item is at least as dangerous as none at all !
    By all means search the net and see exactly what you want, but then go to a shop to buy the gear so you can try it on and ensure it all fits properly

    I would cution against leather. May look cool but is anything but in hot weather. As Jaws says, textiles are the wy to go.

    It's a bleedin' scooter, tell her to get a parka and a furry tiger tail hanging off it.

    All that heavy bike kits gonna look a bit weird on a scooter especially if you're gonna use it abroad in the summer.
    You'll die from over heating not falling off. :xrofl:

    Seriously though you really don't want leather, rubbish in the wet and too hot in the heat.
    Modern textiles are amazing Revit is my choice but honestly for a scooter you don't need to spend that kind of money.
    Just ride and enjoy.:xThumb:
