Hi MTRdr55

Just where in W. MT are you? I'm just a short hop across the Idaho Panhandle from W. MT. There are a few of us female riders in the Spokane/Couer d' Alene area.

Ladies. I am traveling across country right now. We are towing the bikes behind our old RV and having such a good time. We went from Charlottesville, VA to Salt Lake City, Utah, stopping through Breckenridge, CO for a couple days. We are now in MOAB, Utah and will be here for a few days before heading back. We have not firmly decided a route back yet t right now tentatively thinking of heading down to 40 and heading East. Here are a few pictures from Colorado. will share a few more with you when I get them.









Soooooo fun!!!

We just got back from a weekend at Avery, ID. That's a great place to play: Here's a link to a thread where we some times plan to get out riding. This will take you to the page that I did my ride report about the weekend in Avery: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...610051&page=62

Our get togethers are pretty sporatic. Here are a couple things we have working right now that you might enjoy.
Kootenai Rider's riding refresher: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=718392

Airhead Bruce's idea for a campout: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=718453

We would be thrilled to have you come join us. Rainbow007, PNWButtercup and I are usually around when we have get togethers. I think all three of us will be doing both these things. I'm hoping we can get Sector down for Canada for at least one of them too. Plus we never know who will show up.

Come on over.



Tuff Stuff, enjoy your travels. Those are some nice pictures and I'll look forward to more.

Intro

Hi all,

I'm in Central New York (state). Got my license in May, had my first traffic ride July 2nd (you never forget your first, right?) and LOVE riding. Rode a KLR250 for a whole 2 weeks before moving up to a 650. Realized today I've ridding almost 1000 miles in the almost month I've had the 650 . . . no way does it seem like I've ridden that much!

The 250 just kinda fell in my lap when I registered for my MSF class, but I now wish I'd started with the 650. I resisted getting the bigger bike since all the guys were telling me to get it - but (for me) the reality was that the 250 couldn't maintain 55 up the hills I travel on a daily basis. Plus it was *terrifying* on the highway . The 650 weighs 100# more, but I found it to be way easier to ride than the 250.

The only other person at work who has a bike hasn't so much as looked at me since I started riding to work. Heard a rumor he has issues with women - I'm thinking my starting a conversation about gearing or the merit of various tires oughta tick him off.....

Hi all.

Hi there. My name is Rachel and I have owned my first ever bike - DR650 - for 12 months now. Absolutely love it - best mid-life crisis purchase ever! (besides divorcing my husband that is...lol)

A little frustrated at my lack of riding ability given all the places I know I could go on the DR if I had the experience - but hopefully will get there soon.
I live on the Mornington Peninsula if anyone ever wants to go for a ride with a Nooby?
Always after advice and tips too if anyone is keen to offload info!

Welcome, Raych! My hubby rides the DR650 and really likes it. Unfortunately, I'm in TN and haven't a clue where you are, so I'm out. Either way, Welcome!

Hi raych

Just where is Mornington Peninsula ? I'm clueless so I know you're no where near me.

Welcome to ADV and all the fun ahead.

Welcome raych! I was riding this morning and really wishing I was a better rider too. There is one cure for that.... More miles! I am in the Charlottesville VA area so if you ever feel like trailering your bike my direction we can ride! We have lots of great riding around me. Although, right now I am on a trip in Utah with my boyfriend. I feel bad for holding him back so much.
