Hi TuffStuff
We sure do need to get more gals over to Molly's !!!
Come on over ladies ... We have a good time helping each other on life and the greatness and power of being a woman!!! that will get the guys in an uproar
You make me laugh! Nice to see you here LadyDraco!!!

I found a thread for Charlottesville riders so I'll be riding with the guys until I can find some girls here :) It's a good thing they don't mind a newbie girl tagging along with them. When I had my harley I didn't mind riding alone so much, but I don't like hitting dirt trails alone wondering when the next passerby might come along ... and I so love riding in the dirt. The DR200 is so much fun.

Ah. Anyway. Ahem... name is Lori. Been riding dirt bikes for many years, and just recently got a KLR650 to explore all the fun forest roads here in NM. So, I'm a noob to ADV, but not a noob to riding. Good to see so many women out there! I sure don't see many on the roads here.
What part of New Mexico?

Have you been up into the Pecos Davis Willow Forest road?

New to the Forum

I'm looking to buy a BMW F650GS so I joined up. I've been riding for 30 years and want to add the GS to the garage. I have an SVS Suzuki and a ZX6 Kawasaki,

Doesn't sound familiar, but then we mostly go by the forest road numbers on the map. Been through a bunch of stuff in the Jemez mountains and Carson forest.

New Rider

Hi Ladies,

I am new to advrider and new to riding. My bf "matteeanne" is teaching me how to ride. I am currently learning on a ktm duke. All I can say is "LOVE IT!!!". The bike is a bit fast for me but I haven't dropped it yet and I am definitely enjoying the dirt more than the pavement! What's a good must read around here? I live in Washington State.
Just thought I would say HI!(ADVRider Salute I am told!)

welcome Ms. Matteeanne! You are starting out on a pretty awesome bike! I'm learning to ride in the dirt on a little DR200 and have dropped it a few times already :) Enjoy the KTM! Too bad all of us girls seem to live all over the country and can't meet for girls rides!!

I love the ktm duke. I am 5'9" and my feet hit flat on the ground. That definitely helps! It is a fast bike though and very hard to find the gears going down. And I miss neutral 9 times out of 10. My max speed so far is 50. I have an awesome teacher though. There is a local class that I am considering taking that is 16 hours and you can get your license once you pass the class without the dol test. Much better way to go I think?

That is one of the things that bothers me about my bike - I ride a BMW 650GS and at 5'6" i'm on my toes when I stop which is why stopping is usually when I've fallen *sheepish grin*

Neutral gives me issues too. I can always find it while moving it seems and shifting up and then vrrrrrooooooom in place but when I want it, I got jiggle around for it.

I took a class and definitely a good way to go and you're with other learners too, so you can all chuckle together at your goofs.

So far it seems that we are all over. There is a local get together in Oregon next weekend and my boyfriend and I are considering going. There are two girls registered I think. Not sure how many other's in the northwest.
