My better half pointed out to me that there is a distinct lack of purple biking related equipment I.E clothing, helmets and bikes for that matter! Since this is her favourite colour and she is wanting some new bike clothing.

Is there a reason for this? anyone got any suggestions?

Does anybody know why ladies gear is so focused toward the colour pink, I mean PINK!! Thats a bit sexist is'nt it, not all girls like the colour pink!

Does anybody know of any suppliers out there that do purple bike kit?

End rant!

:D

Look at some of the 90s sports bike, often got 'interesting' colour schemes, pretty cool in my eyes!

purple is nearly as bad as pink!

but not quite.

colour on bike gear is quite a choice, anything bright or colourful gets grubby very quick, hi-vis included, but i dont like the latest fashion for grey or beige with big stand out pockets, and BMW "lego brick" colour schemes over the years have been a delight

Chris that video was priceless! Still did'nt see any purple though despite the name! :confused:

Maybe it wasen't the helmets on their heads they were referring to! :D

How about these, i know they're not Adventure bikes, but still...


I owned this one, amazing bike to ride!

And this one is the prettiest sport/tour bike I've ever seen (colour-wise)...



Good luck with the matching gear :)

We were down at paignton bike festival on saturday and Miss DR fell in love with a purple F650GS which was being ridden by a nice lady! There goes 2 1/2 grand and a bit more on a custom paint job!

Feel myself pretty lucky for her to not only like bikes, but to really like an adventure one!! Cats got the cream!!

There was another one which I couldn't find, with purple and green and whatnot...

One for the "what were they thinking" award. ;-)

Bit like the later africa twins. :mrgreen:

Kawasaki ZXR750 early to mid 90's had purple in with the green colour scheme (their literature called it blue but it was purple to the naked eye)

But if she get's the trailee she could have that special paint job !
