In the clothing arena, you can also get boots for ladies. Look for leather boots with one and a half to two inch heels. They should at least cover the ankles and have double zip sides. Black and brown are popular colours but you can get adventurous depending on her taste.
Ensure you keep all sales slips or receipts in case you need to return some items.
Windshield and Helmets

Viewing through a wind screen is not an optimal riding requirement but it can help especially on windy and rainy days. Remember that riding with a wind shield takes getting used to as the wind gets diverted by the shield.
Ladies motorcycle helmets are available in many designs depending on her personality. There are pink ladies motor cross helmets, half helmets, full face bike helmets and scooter Helmets.
Any motorbike helmets you purchase for her should be approved by SNELL or DOT for safety purposes.

You may also buy a pair of sunglasses with interchangeable lens for different lighting conditions.
Throttle Rocker or Custom Seat

Custom seats are built for extra comfort when riding. The original seat is always snug but a customised one will make it better.
Whatever motorbike gift accessories for ladies you decide to buy, think safety first and good taste and style after.
