New gals to mcusa, just drop a short introduction here, so you can be recognized. 
 
By all means, don't limit your 'visitation' to MotoGirls only. If you do, you'll miss the real meat of this site.
 
You can post up a duplicate introduction here: http://forum.motorcycle-usa.com/default.aspx?f=17&m=214092
 
And post a picture of your ride here: http://forum.motorcycle-usa.com/default.aspx?f=17&m=21588
 
To see all the headings, look HERE: http://forum.motorcycle-usa.com/default.aspx?c=28
 
Welcome, welcome, welcome!!
 
The men are quite well behaved on this site... just watch yourself in the War Room, it can get a bit rough in there.
 
Around the Campfire is for all the "Off Topic" stuff. Got some silliness to share, post it there.

Guess I should put something here so folks can see who I am...

I'm Pam. I took the MSF in Oct '02. Currently riding a 2004 BMW R1150R Rockster - Limited Edition. This is my third motorcycle. Bought brand new in April of '05 and has 10K+ miles on the odometer now. I've got almost 20,000 miles under my wheels. I crashed two summers ago and came back. I dropped my current baby 3 times in one day... but I can't imagine giving up the joy that riding gives me. It is something I've discoverd that I do pretty well, and I'm proud of that.

I'm a mom and wife. Guitardad and I love going on day trips and weekend adventures together on our bikes. We're finally feeling confident enough to consider taking the kids along in the future.

My 'big' intro is in General Discussion.

Hi Pam and all,

My name's Patty.  I live in Shoreline, Washington, just north of Seattle, and work in Clinical Research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

After a 35 year hiatus, I decided to take up riding again.  A few months ago, I took the MSF Basic Riders Course and recently got my motorcycle endorsement.

At present, I have two bikes: a 1983 Yamaha RX50 and a 2004 Honda Rebel.

I really enjoy this forum; interacting with other riders and learning a LOT about bike wrenching, biking safety, you-name-it.

Ride safely!

Patty

Hi everyone, I'm Mikkell and I'm from Rice Minnesota. My first time on a bike was about a year ago as a passenger and in oct of '05 I got a Suzuki GS650GL 1982. It needs a lot of work but I'm enjoying learning about bikes and working on my own, as it is now winter I really haven't had much riding time at all although I took the MSF course and missed my endorsement by 1 point. I hope to learn a lot from this site! drop me a line!

Hey Ladies,
I am at 19 months which still feels like a newbie. I rode on the back for a year several years ago. This hubby gave me courage that I could learn. Boy, was the Rebel big and scary. With over a year on the Rebel, I got a Sporty 883 upgraded to 1200 and a lowered seat. Now my hubby got me a Vulcan 500 for "fun". He also has a Triumph, which I can't ride. So we alternate the bikes by moods or rides.
I retired from teaching a year ago and ride every day I can. Here in Florida I can ride year round except for a few rainy/cold days. I ride mostly solo because we have to get a sitter for my Mom who lives with us for us to ride together.
Thanks for the ladies forum; it is a great place for getting to know other women riders and share experiences.

Hi ladies!

I'm a 38 year old mother of a three month old and a three year old, and am a fairly new rider (one year, all while pregnant!!). I ride a 2004 Suzuki GS500F, and down the road have my eye on moving up to either a Triumph Bonneville or a 650 V-Strom.

Great to see all the other women out here...happy riding!

hop Hello ladies, I'm new to this site and I'm excited about it.  I took the MSF course in Jan. 2006 and really enjoy the course and rush. I have already received tips on purchasing my first bike.  I'm from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. (flat) I'm looking forward to joining the rider's world.  I can't wait till I get my bike.  I'm leaning toward a HD 883.

Enjoy the ride and stay clear of crazy drivers on the road.turn

tongue Hello Lisa, you are going to love the MSF course.  I took the course in January 2006 and found it to be very informative.  We were a group of 12 and the ladies out numbered the men.  (8 to 4)  The instructors  were VERY good and patient.  It was a four day course.  Two days in the classroom and 2 days on the range.  We trained on the Buell Blast 500.  It was a great bike to learn on.  Not too heavy but had a great get up and GO.  I am new to this site.  I just joined in March and I have already received good tips.   I am still trying to decide what bike I want to purchase.  It is between a Vulcan 500 or Harley 883.  Anyway, hope you have a great MSF experience.

Enjoy the ride and stay safe.

Thanks cjp. I'm looking forward to the course. Ours is 2 days, with classroom exercises in the am and the afternoons with riding exercises and practice. I got my permit a couple of weeks ago, but with 0 experience, I'm waiting for the class before I even try to decide about bikes...... This forum is great, chock full of great tips and advice. I'm counting down til May.... I'll keep you posted on how the class goes.

Hi everyone,
I'm kinda jumping the gun a bit, but I'm really excited. I'm going to take the MSF in a few weeks. At the college here by my house they have it every weekend. it's a 3day course, friday evening the sat and sun 7:30-3:30. I sent my friend a email with a picture of a motorcycle that i wanted and a week later she called me and she & her son were going to look at motorcycles!! she said I gave them the motorcycle fever!!! She's leaning towards the Honda Rebel, but I keep eyeballing the new vento vthunder, in the ocean blue, of course they're all on backoder for 30-45 days, but I keep looking at others and I keep coming back to that one. I read a few threads on here of them, I might email some of the guys that bought one and ask more questions. Hope to learn lots from ya'll. can't wait to actually get to ride!!

Debby

Hi, My name is Gabi. I'm 29, no kids, not married. I bought my first bike earlier this month. Although I've riden before, other people's bikes, and of course on the back, this is my first. It's a 2006 Honda Shadow VLX. I got the small 600 cc didn't want to overwhelm myself. But I'm already aching for more. Next year I tell myself, I have to get this one down pat... and I must say, I can't get off of it. I only know guys that ride, and of course, they're all in clubs... one is even a Mongol.. so he's not "allowed" to ride with me. The others have crotch rockets so they're not allowed with me either.. at least not to be seen on Sundays, when all the bikes around here ride together. So, I ride alone. Mostly around the beach. I live in Long Beach CA. I guess it makes sense, since I live alone, I ride alone. But it would be nice to find a group of gals to ride with. But I'm sure glad I can relate with the chicas in here. So ride on and be safe.

I'm Rory, I'm 24, and I ride a motorcycle.

I always wanted to ride, so I took the MSF a year ago.

I bought a GS500 the day after I passed.

In the year since, I've really only gotten in about six months of riding (less, if you take out all of the parking lot practice in the beginning). I'm at a little over 600 miles currently.

I don't know anyone who rides, so it's usually just me out there, trying to figure it out. But that's alright. It's how I do most things.

Proud to be a part of the community of women motorcyclists...

Hey Girls!
I'm Chromie.... AKA Louisa.
I'm the happily married mother of 3. Took the MSF course in 03 and I'm picking up my second bike, a 1999 Vstar 1100 custom on the 29th of this month, and I can't wait!!! I'm passionate about bikes, both cruisers and sporbikes, but choose the cruisers for comfort and the ultimately exciting sound of a sexy sounding set of pipes...
Looking forward to getting to know ya.....

Hi Chromie I just wanted to say hello and welcome to the forum. I'm from Al and I ride a Honda 600 vlx delux. I'm a 53 year
old newbie and I've also been stricken with the bike bug. I ride ever chance I get. I can understand why you want your
husband to ride. My husband Kamo taught me and we have a lot of fun riding everywhere together. I guess you have pretty
good weather to ride in Florida now, and it will be a while before we get decent weather to ride in. Be sure to post your bike
picture in the garage section. Back at ya! scool

See ya around!

Hi Phantoms girl: I rode with my hubby kamo for a long time and I enjoyed every minute, but the thrill of riding your own bike is such an experience you have to experience it your self. All my girl friends ride their own bike and I rode with my hubby. I had fun but I didn't quit connect the motor cycle term until I started riding my own bike. I could tell everyone about the beautiful scenery I saw but that was about it. lol I never was interested in riding until I sat on a 125 Suzuki and rode it around the yard. Next thing you know I was riding in the yard like a 53yr old nut. lol But I faced it, I was hooked. I now have a Honda 600 VLX delux that some would call a good newbie bike. I'm still considered a newbie but I love it. Whether you ride with Phantom or try to ride your self the
importance of it all is to have a good time. Just don't wait till your old as me. Just ask all the questions you want because there is
so many experience riders on this forum and you can learn a lot from them. I've overcome several obstacles thru this forum before
I actually joined. Just ask awaaaaay. bc1 :-)

Thanks for the reply bc1!!!!!

I understand about the not connecting thing.....hubby can't wait till it quits raining here in TX so he can ride.  All I think about is I got to put on the helmet and the jacket and the gloves and I will be hot and uncomfortable and is my rear going to hurt so much I can't get off the bike.  It takes alot of effort for me to get into riding.  Not that I have to go with him, but we enjoy doing things together....... I don't know......."cry me a river or something".  I guess this isn't a chat for the Howdy thread.  I think I'll start a new thread about  my rear hurting so much.  Look for it, maybe you can help.

Later & thanks again,

PGturn

Hi Ladies,
I'm Gayle (aka BBC Gal) from the Denver Colorado area. I've been riding for about 6 years now. I waited until my kids were grown and on their own before buying my first bike. I currently have 2 bikes...a 2000 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100 which is up for sale ($3800 if anyone's interested) and I just bought a Big Bear Venom Prostreet Custom in Oct. I'm addicted to riding and if there isn't snow and ice on the road will take a scoot just about any time. I'm looking forward to "chatting" with anyone on this site that wants to contact me.
Keep the rubber side down!
