    So if I'm offered a bazillion dollars to take a picture I shouldn't cause I'm a racer? (BELIEVE me nobody will... :) )

    I agree with Danika's statement a few years ago, when she was taking the same criticism, "Dale posed for underwear commercials and made money... " why shouldn't I?

    I figure if she has the looks, the market and is happy its not my problem..

    I love the guys that are feeling threatened by a woman who dares to be faster. And the great looks? A bonus. Ride/Drive on ladies.

    Thats B.S. If a women is sucessful in whatever she does, she does not need to show some skin and look like a playboy model.!!!.

    If she does she is doing it for the attention and $$$$$$$

    In my book it is no different then beeing a stripper some chics don't care and some women would never even think about it..!!

    Of course as men we want to see the skin..!!!...

    I love wimmen riders, one of the things that attracted me to Mrs1911fan was a pic of her, on her Guzzi, with a big grin. On a cold day, too.
    Funny story- years ago, when I worked at the HD/Kaw dealer on Oahu, we had a lot of people come in to buy HD/Hawaii tshirts. Sometimes 20-30 of them, for their friends. One day, a good-looking Aussie came in and, me being me, I arranged to pick her up at her hotel and take her riding. We went here and there, finishing with a spirited ride up a curvy twisty mountain road to a lookout. I was having fun on the way up, and she was a great passenger. I got into a turn a little hot and hung off a bit (this was back in my roadracing days) and could feel her hanging off behind me. So I sped up, and since we were on my racebike but with the lights and plates on, it was a great ride.
    So we got to the lookout, and we looked at the scenery, and started talking bikes. i told her it was nice to have a passenger that would hang off and enjoyed it, and she replied, "Well, I was last year's Australian amateur roadracing champion."
    And here I was all proud of myself, lol. We talked about where the road went from the lookout, a couple of corners to watch out for, and I gave her the keys and watched her rocket off. She came back about half an hour later with a happy smile, and we had a great time for the rest of the evening. I have got to visit Australia one of these days.
    Bike, for anyone who cares, was a KZ1000 bored out to 1205, Mikuni 34mm smoothbores, big cams, lightened and pinned crankshaft, beefed up front forks, CalFab/ATK swingarm, gussets on the frame in several places, Kerker, etc. Was my daily commuter, and on the weekends I'd take the lights and such off and road race it, or dragrace. Consistent 10.2s in the 1/4 mile with the fat tire and wheelie bar. Made GOBS of power but was a handful if you got off the wrong line.

    Am I mistaken or was Elena the top finishing Triumph rider?

    Yep, of four Triumphs entered, it appears that Elena's was the only one not to experience some type of mechanical problem.
