How does she like that Rev'it jacket? We were looking at those last week.
I am so glad for you guys. Sarah is awesome is an understatement
She loves it.
Her only gripe is that faded to pink in certain areas like the shoulders in fairly short order, but it does get used in the California sun a lot...(last picture taken at 122 degrees near Death Valley) For the price, she's a bit unhappy that, but prefers it to all others in her possesion (3 or 4 more)
Thanks for the feedback. We live in Colorado and have more than 300+ days of sunshine a year so fading is a concern. I have a grey Tourmaster mesh jacket that started out black.
She sold off two of her jackets and bought an Olympia 3 layer set up two years ago. Been a great jacket. Just think she is craving a new one since I just bought new gear.
.....and we know the desert feeling. This was taken between San Diego and Havasu. Temp was around 116. ( sept of 09)
Looks like I need to get the camera out more now!
This summer, my wife and I rode across Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky and back. It was her first trip riding her own motorcycle.
Here is a picture of her looking for a cell phone signal while taking a break.
Here is her motorcycle, loaded up for the trip.
My lady friend feels she takes too much flak for her bike-loading style. She took off this summer on an "ironbutt" with nothing other than a large bird-feeder strapped to the pillion. (It was for some ADV friends, and riding it there was cheaper than shipping.)
There's gonna be some sisterly love goin' around now, let me tell you.
Tracie on her first bike.
Didn't take long before she wanted something with a bit more oomph. And a bit more Pink...
And she's still nice to look at when you arrive at your destination.
Here's a few pics from some of my travels.
The riding pictures are hard to get since I'm almost always on solo rides. If you see me say "Hi!"
See you at the BCBDR7 next june!
Of course you're welcome to post your own. I've never found it particularly easy to take pics of myself. I'd like to know your experiences on the DL650 as a woman. I ride one, and M'lady has looked at them. How does it perform as a woman's bike? Did you modify anything to make it fit?
Here are a few of Mrs. Skowinski:
On her first street bike, and her first overnight street bike trip.
Crossing the Sierra Nevadas in June, moved up to a ZZR600.
Ready to go on a dualsports ride.
A bit of a problem with deep gravel.
I love my Wee I'm 5'4" so I knew going in that I would be lowering it. When I picked it up I could get both toes down and it felt a little precarious - by the time I drove the 100km to the dealer that was going to lower it I felt fairly comfortable but went ahead and had it lowered 2". Now I can flatfoot it Next spring I'm thinking I will take out the lowering links since I plan on some ambitious rides and would like that ground clearance back. At that time I'll probably shave the seat some and lower the pegs so my leg postion will stay the same. The ergos are perfect for me without any mods - the longest day I've put in is about 800km but I still felt good at the end of that day. I can pick it up although if the terrain is particularly rough that can be problematic and I wouldn't want to have to do it too many times in one day
You bet!! I can hardly wait!

Another two ladies I met in Germany
And some more
Did anyone notice that there's a strong contingent of redheads in this lot? Not casting aspersions on the other hair colors, just observing.
Hard to tell in todays time. Hair color seems to change with the seasons.
