Are you small, and do you enjoy adventure riding?

Then you’d better like pink!

My gloves were a lucky shot; I bought them back in 2016 as ‘temporary’ until I would find something decent. But they turned out to be very comfortable and I used them for over 25.000 km in Europe and South America. Until they were done. I started looking for a replacing pair, but never found something quite like them. And so I kept going – for another 18.000 km. Until they fell apart. I fixed them with Gorilla tape, but the heat made the glue melt down … I visited several shops along the way, but there was always only one option in my size (if any at all!): pink ones.

Not just pink-ish – no… real pink! Pink-Panther pink…

So…time has come to live up to my words ‘I don’t care how it looks, as long as it protects me’. As from today you can see me approaching from a distance: it’s not just pink, but fluorescent pink!

How I will miss that moment when police men, gas station employees, or fruit stall owners along the street realize that I’m not a guy on a motorbike – they will notice from far away that a lady is turning up, so that magic moment is gone.

What a shame but well… lady-sized hands + adventure riding = pink gear. I’m glad that I managed to escape the pink boots that I tried on once … who knows what is next?

      I’m trying to find a black marker 😉
      Until that time, getting my hands in the dirt will do.

      Hahaha, thanks Uwe, for bringing ‘Hello Kitty’ back to life. I almost forgot about her…
      I recently promised to 2 mechanics that I would take better care of Harry’s chain, so I’m now fully dedicated to cleaning it. Not a chance that my gloves will lose their girly color by touching the chain. I’ll go for the dirt instead! Mud, sand, mud pools will do 😉
