I usually ride dual sport with my husband and a bunch of other men... my friends are all sissies.

Another female n00b here! Anyone want to start a women's riding gear line? My stinkin pants are too short too - 5'8" and my jacket that is just like my SO doesn't have the shoulder pads he has!

There is a local shop here www.scurve.net for women, check out the site and the store if you are local.

Also, looking for Portland, OR area riders that want to do some easy gravel riding.

Oh, don't get me started about the inferiority of women's gear. It fits like crap, they try to make us all feel fat, short and it doesn't compare to the quality of like mens gear, but don't worry, it is often more expensive.

The pink and powder blue shit kills me. I'm not a motorcycle accessory, don't treat me like one.

Hi, I'm Julie. I ride a Honda599. I have about 31,000 miles on my bike. I really like riding my bike. I live in Conway, AR. I do a combination of commuting and riding the twisties in our area (and around Northern Arkansas). I love to see other women riding on the front of a motorcycle.

Uhhh...
This isn't a dating thread.
Your post smacks of desperation.
And it seems that whenever the gals here on ADVrider get a thread started, some horny or lonely guy comes along and hijacks it.
It gets pretty frustrating.
Try a dating site.


Nice bike, though.

LOL - nice one Ryan (Ghost Rider)!!! What would Kim think if she saw that post? Or is that why you posted? Because you're single?

Nice of you to drop in, despite the inappropriateness of your post

What post? I wouldn't dare and be inappropriate around a bunch of girls!

And yeah, I'm back on the wagon after 5 years and for some reason I'm finding it hard to meet single girls that ride adventure bikes down at the local Starbucks? go figure?


Anyway, I've been shooed away by your thread watchdog, so its back to the pit with all the other desperate slobbering heathens.

Tinks hubby here, Just because she doesn't get on here very often.

We'll be in Jasper at the Hub this weekend for the midsouth SV gathering. Come on by. We'll be doing group rides all through the area.
