wow, that would be a dream! I'd love to come down under. I have an old friend who lives on the Gold Coast, always an open invitation from him to visit. And since beginning to ride, now I have another excuse to visit. The ladies there seem super cool....I'd love to meet and ride with Lee Gunn and other awesome blokettes.

I better start saving the pennies. I would absolutely love to visit Australia. In fact, I've always wondered how I might make some sort of teaching opportunity of it, as well. Maybe an indigenous cultural exchange of some sort. I'm Native and would love to share what I can with communities there.

To rich for my blood.... I just spent a bunch on getting hay in for the winter ..
And my taxes.... No funds left ... Plus I don't fly in jumbo jets...

Now if I could ride there ... I'd be there in a heart beat..

One of my favorite books "Tracks" About a woman, A camel And her Dog

I've been lurking for a while, but guess this is a good place for my first post . I've been riding for a little over a year now with a lot of my hubby's help and absolutely love it!

Thank you! I'm trying to get my husband to go out this weekend, but haven't gotten any warm weather gear yet, so not sure I can talk him into it. I think he was just trying to see how "into it" I got before we started spending a lot of money on our stuff lol. I'm afraid the joke's on him, as long as my body can handle it, I want to go all the time!

It's good to have several places to hang out.

Here's another cool site I recently found and like twowheelfemales.com
Thanks for the link, I'll definitely look at it. It's nice to see how others handle a few diff burdens we deal with that the guys fortunately don't have to .

Oh Right -

I actually had a my own question - I got all into the Shoganai/women tech post and forgot! ha ha!

Soooo, cold weather riding gloves. Any of you lovely ladies have any recommendations? Heated hand-grips are not enough! :)

Thanks so much in advance!!

I've had such good luck with British Motorcycle Gear's Rapido gloves and so I've gone ahead and gotten their ThermoSport for the winter - seems like the same rapido, just with waterproofing and insulation.

Hippo Hands with any winter glove work well for shorter trips. On long trips I use Gerbings heated gloves.
