Fatty Motorcycle Gear

Fat motorcyclists, where are you? And more importantly, how/where do you buy your gear? If you're a gal, do you wear women's or men's gear? Brand recommendations? What is your experience with fit and sizing? Any tips for the very short?

Also, please verify my suspicion that this little number is gorgeous, especially in cream.
Could such a light color be an acceptable choice for a riding jacket?


I'm 100% beginner, but with several longtime biker friends, so I hope for this riding endeavor to outlast my more transitory fashion impulses... In other words, I do want cute gear, but I want to tap into the biker version of "classic" when selecting it, so I don't wake up hating some rather expensive purchases in three months.

Request for fatties who aren't bikers: Get on some websites and pick out some stuff you consider stylish. I'll take all the help I can get!

Thanks to all.

(Hope this isn't old news. Didn't see biker gear in the tags.)
