So pretty. The chrome-shiny bike. The sexy arms, the shades. The petitely balanced hand on one grip. Give me a break. Come on people! Bikes are not fashion statements! Although I hope luck rides with her, this mother of three will probably be pushing up daisies within a year. Motorcycles are not for women. Most gals do not have the strategic abilty to steer out of accidents and they ride in constant fear. Hell, most men should not be riding either. I have been riding since I was nine, and I have seen more dead bodies than I can count...and they are all a couple yards away from a mangled bike.

As a seasoned rider, you should be the first to congratulate this women, and all women for jumping into the riders seat. This places more riders on the street, and gives us a bigger presence. I have been riding for nine years and I have also seen my fair share of horrible accidents, but when new riders are going through the streets, I will not hesitate to aide them in the learning process, as should you. If we all did, less riders would get hurt. We are all learning something new everyday, no matter how long you have been riding, because we are all students in this thing called life. So saddle up, and be a mentor, and not an obstacle

Ohhhhhhhhh!!! Mr. Macho Man!!! I've been riding for over a year with NO accidents. And yes, I'm female. I also ride the major highways and roads from PB to Dade County. I even ride with a large motorcycle club and get many complements on my riding. I also ride the major highways and roads from PB to Dade County. Motorcycles are not for MEN alone.

Wow...a whole year with no accidents!!! I bet you just had it in for the 1500 mile check - up didn't you? Here is the sequel to "Wild Hogs"...A bunch of posers who buy in to Rossmeyers scheme. Buy a bike at list price, but you HAVE to take about $2500.00 in accessories with it or we won't sell it to you! The you can join the HOG Club which irronically has meetings at the dealership so you can buy a couple of $40.00 T-shirts while you're there...Yep spend all those green backs trying to dress like bikers, look like bikers because you never were a part of anything else. Right? Then what does you're HOG Group do? Yeah that's it...You take your weekly trip to some restaurant...Whoopee!Then the chick can take her yearly trip all the way to Daytona, a whole 250 miles, and her husband-boyfriend gets stuck taking the bike in and out of the parking lots at all of the bars because you can't ride on sand and wood chips...Been there done that! This is like the last newspaper article about women riders that featured the woman who was the Secretary of Palm Beach HOG,(that is until she got caught stealing money from the club cookie jar)...The last article, built up the chick biker lifestyle, but forgot to mention how many time she's gone off the road, high sided it, and don't forget the part of the story about how many times she was air-lifted by helicopter to the Hospital...(ain't that right J.R.) Chicks don't have the apptitude, the skills, or the brains to be on bikes...This is all a part of the Harley myth created by the Rossmeyers of the world because all of the pencil pocket protector nerds have bought their bikes, and the dealership is running out of customers...Go get your "sporties" girls! Keep Rossmeyer in the black!

And who helps you? Lets see, nine years at 500 miles a year does not a biker make you...But...I bet you have a closet full of all of the nice "Harley" gear...The shoes, the jeans, t-shirts, belts! All made in china and sold at a 500% mark-up by Mr. Bruce Rossmeyer!( oh yeah the HOG people get a whopping 10% discount) and then you get to wear a patch and dress like all of the other little "Hogsters" and go to "Bike Night" at Crabby Jacks....It's easy to tell that you are not a seasoned rider, but someone who wouldn't have an identity if you didn't join HOG, attend the weekly meetings with your "vest" on, oh, I bet they made you a "Road Captain" didn't they? Seasoned Rider...yeah right!

Sorry to disspoint you. I own two harley t-shirts. one from my first Daytona trip, and one from NY when I rode up there. I do not get into the habit of buying over priced merchandise, and I ride in jeans, work boots. When I am cold it is a denim jacket that has been beat up through the years and no patches. I do not feel like I have to identify with anyone else because I am confident in who I am. I ride everywhere, and the 0nly time I am in a car is with my wife who doesn't ride because of MS. So my miles are a little more than 500 a year. I have eaten it at times, asphalt and dirt, but never bad enough to make me stop. I usually ride alone, when I meet others on the road and they wish to attach, I am grateful for the company. I belong to no club. Hence, you should not criticize what you do not know

I get out plenty, just do not hang out in places where I need to show what I got. And I re-iterate, there is nothing more sexy or hotter than a women be it young, middle aged, or old straddling a saddle.... I mean hot and sexy because they are living it free!!!!!

Nice!

And if boys you think women can't ride, then you must know nothing about the hobby. Assumptions make you look ignorant.

I think even you can agree, Bubba, the problem is not with motorcyclist, but with all the hot head bad divers in south florida who make riding so dangerous. I really doubt being female or not riding everyday toward your stupid satisfaction is the reason.
