Colleen and I just revisited this subject last night with a group of friends. She said that putting the helmet on and being anonymous about gender or age is liberating. She likes it when she rides well and at the destination someone says "oh...a woman..you ride good".......I like it too when it happens to me......man or woman...someone says..."you ride good"........it's nice. We go to a rally....Colleen won't go to the 'all women' events.....she's a motorcyclist. Some one suggested she went on a "Womens" ride......she said she couldn't think of anything worse than riding with a bunch of women! I think she said "fuck no"
