Ok. Let’s not ignore the fact that it’s February. The month of love, hearts, candy and COLD WEATHER (at least for some of us). But let's talk about something HOT! One of the best parts of the motorcycle culture is all of the awesome accessories and gear that go along with it! So, put down the candy. Log off of flowers.com, and treat your love, or yourself, to one of these AMAZING gifts!
Oh, and did I mention each one of these products comes from a woman-owned business. These babes are kicking butt! Check ‘em out…
1. Standard Themes - Bandanas
Boss Babe: Emberly Modine
These uniquely designed, small batch bandanas are soft, exquisite and eco-friendly. Among the core values at Standard Themes is that everything is made with care and concern for the planet. “We are continually assessing the impact of every item's fabrication every step of the way, from the dyes we use, the growing and harvesting of textiles, to the workplace and treatment of every person involved.” Not only are these bandanas versatile, they come to you in biodegradable packaging. This will be THE one bandana you keep forever! Visit the website: https://www.standardthemes.com
2. Just Ride 5 – Long Sleeve Moisture Wicking Shirt
Boss Babe: Jenn Guerrero
Made from top quality 77/23 polyester spandex, each of these form fitting shirts provide comfort and protect all day. The polyester/spandex blend is breathable, while the pleated thumbholes keep your sleeves in place to keep you warm. Streamlined styling make this shirt the perfect base layer, and when the ride is over you still look great! “JUST RIDE 5 is rooted in the lure of the wide-open road that draws the soul to throttle through whatever twists and turns life brings.” Amen to that!

3. Wind and Throttle – Riding Gloves
Boss Babe: Jennifer Williams
Choose the Café Quilted Gloves if you’re looking for a classic style, or the Sunday Ride Gloves if you want to make a sleek and bold statement. Made from the softest leather, you can’t go wrong with either choice. Maybe one in every color to suit your mood? Jennifer’s philosophy is that “the best women’s motorcycle gear comes from independent companies that know what women want: protection, comfort and style.” She founded Wind & Throttle to bring together riders, designers and companies that create what women want in their riding gear.
