    Don't worry..natural selection/Darwin's law dictates she will take herself out of the gene pool soon enough!!
    Statistics don't lie. I wish her no harm , I'm just "sayin'....."
    It's too bad that until that happens, she will be an "ambassador"/stereo type of sorts to the non-riders out there... And a negative one at that!
    If being a capable, clued in RIDER means being classified as a "BIKER BITCH" by some helpless clueless wanna be, then by all means, call me a bitch!
    I personally have been called worse...MUCH worse!
    Please keep us posted on her "progress"..it's interesting in a "train wreck" sort of way...:evil :D

    I could have seen my wife if the "biker babe" made that comment to her:

    Babe: "Oh, you're a biker bitch, aren't you?"
    My wife: "Why, yes, I am." slap...slap...slap...." Oh look, I broke a nail!"

    I doubt the biker babes would even find this site and I doubt they would hang around if they did. Posers on Harleys; why is it always a Harley?

    Damn, that's funny! :lol3

    My own experience:

    Had my 650GS loaded in the back of the pickup - for what reason, I can't remember now - and stopped at a gas station for some fuel. I get out, pull out the pump, start fueling when I notice this guy looking at my bike.

    Him: "Nice bike!"
    Me: "Yeah, I like it."
    Him: "What is it?"
    Me: "BMW 650"
    Him: "Oh. Sweet. Is it yours?"
    Me: "Nahhhhh... just hauling it for a friend." *said with complete sarcasm which was totally lost on him.*
    Him: "Yeah, it's too much bike for you."

    :huh


    I left the gas station laughing my ass off. :lol3

    Been doing a lot of touring and dirt of my f650 gs. Colorado rides rock! Any women on bigger enduros like the 1150 gs or 1200 gs, would love to hear about taking them on dirt!

    Just found this thread.
    Nice to know I'm not the only one out there.
    Two bikes for two reasons :
    vintage 1973 R75/5 'cause it's just so sexy
    '03 F650GS for touring the world (only a fraction of it so far).

    Hey Ladies,
    I have often wondered about how many women are on this site...
    Background...started in 97 on a CBR F3, then bought a KTM 200 EXC, KLR 650, have a vintage 250 Puch, and my new love my Vstrom 650.

    I rode it to Alaska and Canada last year solo, some of you probably saw the ride report. And I met Barb in Alaska, she rocks...

    I was just in BV, CO for the west Rally and met some women, I can't remember names...but it is always great to see other women on bikes.

    My big dream is to ride the Dakar by 2011. I know I am nuts, but that's okay. I am completely okay with that!!

    Nice to meet all of you..

    Wow! That's not nuts. That rocks. The only way people ever get something done is to have a goal and keep working towards it, or so I understand. :D

    Welcome to ADVRider and thanks for the intro. Looks like you've done some awesome rides. I'm off to Alaska/Arctic circle next year. :clap

    It is great to hear the encouragement!! thank you...

    I just recently hooked up with a young rider(cute boy!) that I am going to start training with. I figure it is going to take a lot of work, might as well have some one to flirt with and a nice set of abs to distract me on occasion! It can't be all work. Plus, he is so young, he is out of my age range, so it will be all about the riding;-) We are both very motivated and driven, so I think it is going to be helpful in getting us both towards our goals.

    Who knows if I will make it, but I am going to do everything in my power to get myself there.

    Thanks again for the support. It is really great to hear it.

    I missed this thread. How did I miss this thread??!! :norton

    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. :freaky

    Nice bike, Lori. New Mexico is beautiful. I bet there are lots of great places to ride down there. Nice to meet you!

    Ladies (and lurkers),
    Last time I checked, I was a girl too. 38 year old with about 18 years of riding. Minnesota is home, but I also lived in New Mexico for some time. I am on BMW #3 (2004 R1150R) and am going to add a DS of some kind in the next several months. Think it might be a KLR.
    If you are near MN, drop me a PM. Always looking for people to ride with. If you are a BMW rider, check out my forum. bmwomen dot com. Cheers!

    This is humorous
    I just realized that I had already checked in on this thread a while back. I must be getting old....the mind is going. :doh

    Since I raised the topic of KLR's, how many women here are riding them? 250 or 650. The 650 doesn't scare me away, but I would like a bike that is pretty easy to push around in the dirt. I kind of like the Sherpa. Anyone got one they need to unload?

    Sherpas seem pretty hard to come by. I rode one around at the Winter at the Farm ride last winter and it was a BLAST!
