I think for most people, 'wench' doesn't carry bad connotations, just informal ones. The ones who would be offended by the term are probably so devoid of a sense of humor that you wouldn't want to have them on the site anyway.

I will be signing up, for sure. I have no clue whatsoever about how to maintain my motorcycle. I'm completely dependent on others for help in the short term until I know what I'm doing. I am looking forward to the information and resources and I would appreciate being somewhere where other people are supportive no matter what level of maintenance proficiency you possess. In my case it's nil. For yourself, Gwen, it's quite considerable. Thank you so much for giving your time and resources to help other women out there, I so appreciate it.

I've been reading and it was suggested that I ask people if they would like to be 'charter members'.

People that have content, stories, pictures, and questions ready to post when the site goes live.

Would anybody here be intrested?

Do you know of or can suggest people that may not be members here that would be interested?

I'd be happy to be a charter member but have little to contribute. I could however be the one who posts comments on others work... "hmm, so how did you get the black thingy scootched over there?".

Holy SHIT, what have I’ve done?


A series of events and people popping out of nowhere to offer their services and help has given me the courage to attempt to start my own forum.



I would really like to hear your thoughts on what you would like in such a forum.
Well I think it's a great name! I love alliteration in names. Makes them easy to remember!

That's great that so many people have come forward to help you out! Best of luck and I definitely want to be a part of it! I am also a designer so if you ever need anything like flyers, postcards, web site work, whatever feel free to drop me a line!

I don't really have any content to add at this point. Would you consider putting on Bark Busters part of that type of forum? That will be something I will do in the next couple of weeks. Maybe the forum could be broken down into sections. I don't know how you'd be breaking out the forum - like engine work, changing tires, something like that.

A young fella I work with and I are signing up for a local Adult Ed class in the Spring, it's a small engine class and the kid owns three old moped/scooters... I mentored him into riding and home ownership, so we're going to bond some more over his 1980-something Honda Express!

What a fantastic idea! Please let me know when the site goes live.

I'm Stacy. Corvallis, OR.

I don't have a fancy garage, and I'm a self-taught newbie wrencher, but if it's about a Honda Rebel or Suzuki SV650 I can probably help you.

Thank you Stacy

I would like anyone's input on a couple of matters.

1. Would anyone be willing to contribute pictures of women working on motorcycles for the photo banner bar?

2. What do you like or dislike about any forums you belong to?

Hi

Thanks Shoganai for your great ideas!

Looks really exiting. When I ask chaps to help me mechanically, they usually just roll their eyes at me and end up taking over.

Really looking forward to getting into this forum.

FWIW,
I'm in Cambridgeshire, UK
Have full workshop with hydraulic bike bench, lathe, etc, bit tight for space
and my workplace is a half empty industrial unit in Norfolk, so somewhere dry.

I'm not great with the old mechanics myself, that is my dad's territory. He does take the time to explain things and show how to do bits and bobs, but he is only in the UK half the time, so I've learnt the old adage that if you want something doing well then do it yourself. He has also made some crazy booboos, he once changed my rear brake pads as I was away and needed the bike good to go when I came back, went out for a ride and found he had forgotten to put two bolts back on the calipers.

I do basic servicing myself with the aid of a manual, and fit bits and bobs. If I want a classic bike, and when get my new adv bike in the next 3 months, I'm going to have to learn to do ad hoc repairs on the move.

Some have mentioned local courses at schools/colleges for mechanic courses, don't seem to be many round here.

Anyways, I don't have any photos of me doing anything to bikes, but i'll ask, or be nerdy enough to set my tripod up.
