1. Been riding since 1982. Little over 200,000 miles now.
2. I enjoy riding alone or with my husband. Two bikes is big enough group for me.
3. I enjoy two lane back roads or local four-lanes. 90 mph slab, not so much.
4. I belong to no organizations.
5. Learning from my mistakes has improved my riding the most. Stupid hurts.
6. Currently I'm riding a 2008 Suzuki C50 Boulevard. I've owned eight motorcycles.
7. Not looking to accomplish anything but keeping the rubber side down while stacking up miles :-)

Great post!


Ride it like you want to ride tomorrow.

I have been riding approximately 4 years and I ride a 1100 cruiser. I will ride alone but I perfer to ride with my husband Kamo. I like to ride with 6 riders or less but not in large groups because I consider it a safety issue. I do not belong to any Women's organization but I have been considering it. I have watched ride like a pro and it taught me that practicing the manuvers with a better rider. Even season riders take time out for practice. One important thing I would like to master is left hand turning from a stop and tight turns. bc1


Live well, Love much and Laugh often!

I started 5 years ago at age 44. I'm now 49 and have ridden about 100,000 miles. I retired as a registered nurse and now I ride all over the country. I ride a Victory Kingpin - and enjoy riding with my husband, or in groups, but I think more than anything I enjoy riding alone.

p.s.  How do I post a pic so that it is visible on the message?

Sorry  to tell you t his bit, but once Winter has arrived or time to put away the bikes then even less will be on this m/c board or any board.  It just seems to be the way things go.


Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Currnetly ride CBR1000rr and I prefer it alone on a long fast road. I belong to no organizations. I would prefer to elevate the level of female riding to a point that there is no distinction. Get enough of us out there and people will stop noticing. I want my daughters generation not to get harrassed and stopped like I did 20 some years ago. The one thing that improved my riding ability most is that I always count on some idiot paying more attention to their cell phone than to where I am on the road.
