    I was pleased to find ladies BMW Tourshell jackets and trousers on 50% sale at Pidcock’s BMW dealership last weekend, my wife rides pillion only occasionally and was reluctant to spend on new kit, yet we like to wear matching gear and it was time for an upgrade. They only had a few pieces but fortunately in her size. The added bonus was that the same men’s stuff was also available with 30% discount ( I had been given to believe it was only available at full price) so we managed to both get kitted out with the suits I wanted with a great saving - happy days! Hopefully it will prove warm, dry and comfortable and I’ll have a happy pillion rider for our France trip at the end of May.

    Thanks Bravo, your earlier comments gave me confidence together with other reviews to go for these suits.

    Bravo - can you explain how the cuffs are supposed to operate on the jacket - when I pull the tab it expands elastically and then it doesnt align with the velcro.........I'm trying to tighten the cuff so my gauntlets will go over the top?

    That's where you're going wrong love..... your gloves should go underneath else the water will run down the sleeve into them.

    On the other hand ( no pun intended) at any decent speed the wind will blow the rain up your sleeves!

    Never had a problem yet Jim but I'm probably not to riding fast enough:)
    Though the sleeves did come undone and ride up my arms when having a race with a car last year but in their defence I didn't have them done up properly.
