Pink-ify Your Gear for Breast Cancer Awareness Month



Many of us have known someone - a friend, a wife, a sister, or a mother - with breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, over 192,000 new cases are expected to be diagnosed this year alone. The motorcycle community has come out strong, with hundreds of events sponsored by clubs and dealerships throughout the year.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we found our favorite pink accessories and bikes to support the 2.5 million survivors nationwide.

Icon Women's Hella Street Angel Chaps - Part sweet and part sassy, these adjustable white chaps with a pink stripe are specifically designed for women.

3/4-Sleeve Hot Pink Arctic Cat Tee - Match this 100% cotton, pink t-shirt with jeans on the weekends. The screen-printed Arctic Cat logo even makes it look like a vintage baseball tee.

Airframe Street Angel Helmet - The Airframe Street Angel Helmet is pretty sweet-looking. The airbrushed design is a piece of art, but it's outfitted with some great features too. With a fully-removable HydraDry(TM) interior, you can wash and dry your helmet lining to avoid that locker-room smell.

Altimate Wild Cat Series Women's Boot - Looking for a more subtle way to rock pink? Check out this pair of black women's boots with pink stitching and laces. Standing 9" tall with fur lining and Thermolite(TM) insulation, the boots help keep your ankles and shins safe and toasty.

2010 Limited-Edition Pink Vespa LX 150 - Buck's Motorsports in Akron, NY is selling a limited-edition, cotton-candy pink Vespa. What better way to show your support than with an all-pink scooter?

2009 Yamaha FZ6R - I like the pairing of hot-pink with the flat-black finish. Road, Track and Trail will even ship this motorcycle anywhere in the Continental U.S.

We tip our hats (and helmets) to all of you who support the search for a cure.
