    Trying to pack for a moto trip that includes cold weather desert camping and a work conference in Vegas. This is tough (I know, what a hardship, right?). Can't wait to ride!

    Awesome. I'm not a woman.
    But I did a similar trip to Vegas last year. Combined a bussiness trip with a ride. Loads of fun. I did get cold camping at 7000 feet at the snow line.

    I do it the opposite way and carry what I need for the conference or business meeting with me and ship it home as soon as I no longer need it. I did that twice last year. First when I rode from Houston to Washington DC for a conference and then when a court date cropped up in the middle of my already scheduled ride to a rally. On that one I ended up parking the bike at Chicago Midway airport for 2 nights while I flew down to Oklahoma for the hearing, mailed what I didn't need any longer back home on my way to catch my flight back to pick up the bike for the rest of my trip.

    It's always the safest thing to wear...

    My engagement ring and wedding band. The ring is <0.5 carat single stone so it doesn't protrude too much.

    none under the gloves, but I have one of the elastic huge blingy rhinestone do-jobbies that I wear over my glove on my left hand ring finger. That's the only hint besides the rhinestone pink ribbon/breast cancer decals on my helmet that I'm a girl.
    I'm still trying to find the waist I lost after having my son 14 years ago - until I do I just wear ill-fitting but comfy short mens gear! :lol3 I'm thrilled with all the womens gear out there now, but I'm not down to my target weight yet, so no new duds for me until then!

    I bought new duds and plan on selling the older/fatter duds on the flea market here.

    Had a great trip, but packed way too much. We did one stretch of off-road that would have been more fun and more successful with less weight.
    At one point my husband and I parted ways, then I got the "you don't see many ladies riding solo" comments at gas stations. Respectful enough, and usually followed up with "I wish my wife liked to ride". I wonder when it won't be an odd site anymore?

    You should have seen how odd it was in the 80's.

    Keep on riding! :thumb

    I remember when a guy asked if I was a girl. :lol3

    We were the only vehicles stopped at a stoplight, and he was in a pickup with his window down. It was late at night. I had on a full face helmet, jacket and blue jeans. He was staring at me....so, I finally looked at him. He asked increduously, "Are you a girl??" Not wanting to appear vulnerable, I just firmly nodded once - and looked back at the light. I wanted to crack up laughing then and there. :rofl

    I was told once, that I would have made a great guy. I was working on my old Triumph - as usual - so I took it as a compliment :lol3
