Question eh-hem! for all you FELLAS in the ladies' room

QUESTION for all the MEN in here:
I'm just curious to know what you all think of females who ride???? Ive been getting mixed reviews-some think its cool, others think its butch-like or intimidating. Im a really petite gal (see gallery or avatar<------) and most people say they cannot even imagine me riding! And these are not just the common folk; even the fellow rider has made a rude remark as such...This of course, does not affect me too much but every now and then my morale drops
i promise im not trying to fish for compliments, its purely to satisfy my curiosity so honest answers are welcome

i think its awesome that women are getting on bikes more. i think those who look down upon it just don't understand and probably don't ride. Riding a motorcycle give one a sense of freedom and that is an experience that should be shared, men and women alike.

My wife rides. I think it is very cool.

I also think what you look like has nothing to do with this topic. If someone is fat or doesn't look the way you like, why should they not be able to enjoy this "basically" independent hobby/skill?

The one comment above makes it sound like if you are ugly or fat you should stay off the bike, or at least out of the eye shot of others who might be offended.

My wife rides. I taught her how in 1979. I Think the more the merrier. In fact I'm giving her my 900ss. The only thing I don't like about women riders is when they blow by me on the track

A few ccs short of a full litre.

Another reason for helmets though, we all look better with them on!

chicks on bikes =

i can see how it can be intimidating to guys that never rode a bike, especially if its a big butch chick...

...but when it's someone like tinee, i doubt you will take TOO much ribbing on being a rider, guys would prolly be more interested in your # than how many cc's your bike has...

and GOD BLESS anyone that is intimidated by you tinee

Don't pay any mind to the guys that make comments like you don't belong, chances are it's because you can outride him. I have a Sunday morning riding crew with a few females that ride and more starting to show. It's not because you're small, we have one girl, Amy, 5 foot tall on an R6 that keeps up with us at 150 mph and the turns. Ladies on R6, CBR900rr, GSXR750. Three are even racing in Jennings with us. If he's rude, he's envious. You're always welcome to join us. If anyone is on two wheels, they can't be all that bad, we have something in common. If you're ever around give a pm.

Girls that ride are just awesome. If I could meet a gril that rides that has even the slightest interest in me that would be sweet as hell.

120 mph.....woo-hoo it tickles

Every guy I've ever encountered has thought its sexy... any guy who says its uncool for a girl to ride should go fall over in a parking lot full of Harley riders! *JK JK*

Helmets save lives, I'm living proof.

People are so attracted to me they hit me with their cars.
