    The picture helped me visualize what can be done to keep the bags away from the hot parts. There are always creative ways to get what we want on bikes it just takes some thinking and seeing what others do. :D


    Super link thanks for providing it. Luckily I have the time to research what bike I want and how to get it set up the way I want it. And even better yet is that I have all you super ADVriders to help me along.:clap

    Lady bug, I have an 05 Xt 225 for sale. It has about 1285 miles on it. I am the second owner, I bought the bike with 385 miles. I took the stock tires off and replaced with a DOT approved knobby tire as I rode mostly on gravel roads. ( I wanted the tires to stick in the corners) The reason I'm selling is this bike makes my 4th bike..........I have to get rid of at least one. Calll me at 509-429-8669. I'm in Okanogan, just happen to be coming to spokane this wknd 11/10/07.[​IMG]

    Hi Ladies,
    OK lets support someone who listened to the request for ladie's sizes and made it happen. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=257369 Click on the oder link and it will take you to the shirts and the prices have been reduced. This is the first time I've seen it where the ladies shirts are less expensive than the men's.:clap They're only $10.95 and there are some great looking designs. Ohhhhhhh how this is going to cost me since I can't decide which ONE to get I have to get more than one. Yep, that's just what I need more t-shirts.:shog Oh yeah, there's thongs that can be ordered too if that's something you like.

    Apparently there have only been a few ladies t-shirts ordered which will result in the ladies sizes not being available in the future if they don't sell after they are made. My 2 cents says that's a big reason we aren't able to get ladies riding gear, etc. there just isn't enough of us that buy it when it is produced. :(:

    Many of you may not know the shirts are available much less the ladies sizes so I wanted to pass this on. I knew the shirts were available but the last time I looked at the thread the ladies shirts were still in the works, then I was busy riding and didn't get around to check it again until this morning. I miss a lot of posts during riding season because I'm too busy playing but once I start staying home a little I discover some of the things I have missed. This information might have even been posted in this thread and I missed it here but if it has I think it's worth a revisit.

    You might also want to let NC Bud know you appreciate that the shirts were made. :D

    I fixed your picture in the other post for you, it was just a little typo :D

    Be sure to post your bike for sale in the FleaMarket, I bet it won't last long. Great bikes to have around, a hoot to ride and not only fun as starter bikes but obviously great for the vertically challenged as well!

    Terrific pics Sarah! That will be fun for you to get a dual sport bike and you and your hubby will be able to tackle all sorts of fun things.

    It's to bad you are clear on the other side of the country since I'm thinking about hosting a ladies campout ride in this area next summer. Hey, feel free to ride over and join us, wouldn't that be fun? :D

    I just came across this thread and after having read most of it am thrilled there are so many women riders and so many riding varied bike styles and riding in so many parts of the world....BRAVO :bow

    I am a relative noob myself, but am an avid rider and dedicated one. I have had the fortune of lots of free time due to being a self-employed artist and have been able in my 3 years of riding to ride nearly 50K. I have recently ridden some offroad miles, but need a different bike to do much more. I too am looking to a dual-sport in my future, but one that is fairly light and flickable.

    Both my husband and I ride and have had a few different bikes. Right now i am experiencing serious moto love :raabia with my 00 Suzuki Bandit 12S. What an amazing machine...no matter where i take it, it treats me well.

    My husband and I both write and do photography although he is better at both...we have a website where we write ride reports and do motography. The link is in my signature and we would love to have some more female contributors.

    I just lost a friend over the weekend to a moto accident and am feeling a bit raw today. As passionate as i am for my sport, i realize the overtones of mortality and how heavily it weighs on us as riders. So ride safely and vigilently.

    Just wanted to stop in and say hello to all.

    cheers,
    donna

    Welcome to ADVRider Donna-I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, especially under these circumstances. I hope you'll get the joy back into riding soon nonetheless...and since photography is one of your other vices aside from motos, I'll look forward to your pics in our Ride Reports forums.

    Thanks you for your welcome and your empathy. My riding allure has not been alieviated only tarnished for a bit. Grief will sort it out for me...a ride couldn't hurt either. :raabia

    I have posted a couple of ride reports in the past...but my solo ride to 7 states and two provinces is my favorite. Here is a link and i hope you and others enjoy! My passion is touring and seeing country i have never had the opportunity to enjoy. I am limited by my bike on many adventures, but hope to soon remedy that. I have enjoyed countless ADVrider ride reports and look longingly to some more international riding.

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=250630

    I hope to meet some of you in the not too distant future.

    cheers!
