What part of Michigan do you live in? It might work to have a weekend meet somewhere and see what happens...

I did a little digging, and I don't think this was strictly an AMA event. (but I could be very wrong)
The 2009 conference looks like it was a collaborative effort bewteen multiple women's riding organizations with the primary driver being the Women's International Motorcycle Association. Their 2011 conference is going to be in Great Britain. http://www.wimaworld.com/index.html

I checked out the organization links at the bottom of the 2009 AMAWIMA conference this is what I found:

Link to the USA WIMA website is dead.

Femmoto is now sportbiketrackgirl http://www.sportbiketrackgirl.com/index.php/about/

Links to the other organizations check out.

I'm not sure if anyone else was interested or not, but there it is

I don't think you have to be short to appreciate it either.

I'm 5'10" and I have a hard time finding thumpers small enough for my short inseam and my tall torso.

Lansing area, I am always looking to go riding dirt or street. Today was not the best day for it. Freezing rain with sleet and snow would be fine if I was dressed for winter ridding and riding the dirt bike. My SV is like a pampered pooch and get all squirmy on dirt or snow.

Hey Ladies! I live by Lake Orion(SE Michigan) I have been wondering if there are any other lady riders around. I ride mostly dirt roads from my home. Metamora, etc........not a big street rider.

No too far from you, but I am a street only kinda girl.
You might want to check out the Central Regional forum for a meet & greet in Ann Arbor coming up on May 7th tho. Should be a nice mix of street and dirt riders.
And bmwgrrl, who is setting it up - I think she rides dirt as well....

thanks for the info. Though I did think this site was for adventure riders; thus dirt is included in the ride.....

MIcountry it's good to know that there are more dirt riders around here. You going to the ADV get together on the 17th of June? http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=665880 I am hoping to not be the only girl there. Last year was a blast. The food was fantastic and the beer better.

I don't think this site is exclusive to dirt riders.
As long as you are on 2 wheels, it's all an adventure to me.

Girls in Virginia?

Hey ladies, I scrolled through this thread trying to find any of you close enough to me to join me for a ride sometime and I can't find anyone. I live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Anyone nearby? Maybe I'll have to learn to trailer my bike and travel to where you all are!

:)
