ScooterGirls jacketArlene at The ScooterGirls, Inc. in Los Angeles has launched her innovative new line of women’s scooter / motorcycle gear in a big way by taking first place at LA Fashion Week with GoGo Gear.  The win wasn’t the only accomplishment of GoGo Gear, it was the first time that protective gear was part of a real fashion show.

I first heard about Arlene’s business start-up called ScooterGirls, when I was listening to the news on public radio a year ago.  I liked her story so I contacted her for an interview for MotorcycleInfo.org.  She kindly helped me put an article together about her unique marketing campaigns using Models on Motor Scooters. She also had told me of her plan to develop a line of women’s riding gear that would combine safety and fashion. Well, now the world of women’s riding gear is about to change.

The European launch of GoGo Gear will be Nov. 10-15, 2009 at the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show in Italy.  You will also see the ScooterGirls apparel line at the International Motorcycle Shows in LA (12/4-6), New York (1/22-24) and at the Dealer Expo in Indianapolis (2/12-15).
