Of course you're welcome to post your own. I've never found it particularly easy to take pics of myself. I'd like to know your experiences on the DL650 as a woman. I ride one, and M'lady has looked at them. How does it perform as a woman's bike? Did you modify anything to make it fit?

Here are a few of Mrs. Skowinski:

On her first street bike, and her first overnight street bike trip.


Crossing the Sierra Nevadas in June, moved up to a ZZR600.


Ready to go on a dualsports ride.


A bit of a problem with deep gravel.

I love my Wee I'm 5'4" so I knew going in that I would be lowering it. When I picked it up I could get both toes down and it felt a little precarious - by the time I drove the 100km to the dealer that was going to lower it I felt fairly comfortable but went ahead and had it lowered 2". Now I can flatfoot it Next spring I'm thinking I will take out the lowering links since I plan on some ambitious rides and would like that ground clearance back. At that time I'll probably shave the seat some and lower the pegs so my leg postion will stay the same. The ergos are perfect for me without any mods - the longest day I've put in is about 800km but I still felt good at the end of that day. I can pick it up although if the terrain is particularly rough that can be problematic and I wouldn't want to have to do it too many times in one day

Did anyone notice that there's a strong contingent of redheads in this lot? Not casting aspersions on the other hair colors, just observing.

Hard to tell in todays time. Hair color seems to change with the seasons.

My wife's been riding her own bikes (and a scooter) for about 5 years. We bought her a Ninja 250 just about 2 years ago, and she's put on almost 25K since then.
This is between Reno and Winnemucca, NV, on the way to Boise. We took a 3,500-mile trip last Summer from Northern California to Idaho, Yellowstone, Glacier NP, Seattle, then down the coast.





She had a KLR250 for a while, and loved everything about it except the kick-start-only feature. This past Spring we bought her a DR650, and she's in love, so much so that she's mentioned doing the CDT next Summer.







I'm truly a lucky guy!!

Loving this thread. Here's M'lady after doing 1086 miles in Canada this summer on an "Iron Butt" through Quebec and Ontario in about 21 hours.

That's enough Champagne to get her wrecked.



A little while later, she was invited to attend a rally in NY. I don't rally, unless there's a raid somewhere in it. She ended up carrying three people's gear, as they didn't want to clutter up the smooth lines of their V-twin cruisers with anything practical. M'Lady took their dunnage and Granny's rocker:



She also rides a K75S, and has a good Yamaha XT250 in the pipe. I can't wait to ride dirt with her. Last year, with me on the KLR Siss-fitty and her on her BMW, we rode some rough road and deep water. That was before we had helmet-to-helmet comm. Didn't matter, I could hear her whooping and hollering all the way.


She was featured in a film recently, with bikes and guns. How cool is that?

Awesome thread...

I wish I could get my wife interested in motorcycles. She doesn't care if I do it, but has no interest herself...

One thing I've noticed on this thread is that the ladies here don't just do an occasional run...they ride the snot out of their bikes...CONGRATULATIONS to all...

Bob out...
