Renting motorcycle gear

Hi all

Since I'll be getting my license in the near future, I'd like to take my girlfriend along two-up. She's uncertain whether she'll like it (though I'm not) so I'd like to rent gear for her the first time or two. Any thoughts where I can do that? Helmet, boots, the full shebang. Preferably somewhere in or near Zurich.

As an aside, if you know any good-looking pink or purple jackets or helmets, I'd like to know the model name. Hard to find something stylish targeted towards a 22-year-old woman.

Thanks!

Re: Renting motorcycle gear

You might as well get a cheap set of duds on ricardo or eBay. There are always garish turquoise monsters of gear going for peanuts. It will surely be cheaper than renting - if such a thing exists.

for example:

Re: Renting motorcycle gear

I have two female friends with motorbikes and they both wear guys outfits.

(the Honda pants and jacket on auto-ricardo 10:30 posted look fantastic, in my opinion. I wouldn't wear the red one.)

Re: Renting motorcycle gear

In case anyone else is curious, I stumbled across this site just now.

Looks like they'll rent you gear. And if you're learning, looks like they'll rent bikes at reasonable monthly prices.
