I cant help it, I like slipknot!

"OOH-RAH,"
And I hear this all the time too,
"But your so small, isnt that bike heavy"? It's a F2 for christ sake, not a heritage, and not to bag on any harley riders out there but I will NEVER turn back, I am a changed woman! Well.....

REALLY, I am...interested in hearing from other women for riding, becuase to be honest, and I'm not dissin on the guys either, I love ya'll, but so many riders (male) here in California just look down on me because I am a female and because I am so small, or because they think I'm looking for sex or attention. The fact is, largeness or ulgyness or whatever, is not a requirement for a female to ride a sportbike, any bike for that matter, but still, they (female riders) are few and far between.
Another honesty, because I ride alone most of the time and its kind of a bummer, I see all these riders in groups and it looks like so much fun to share, I would like to ride with......SO, If I make sence, good, email me and lets go riding. I am in the military and so is my husband, so finding a group is ya know, difficult cuz were always on the go.
Being a female is not a requirement, but love of the ride is!!
Oh yeah, my name is Anglea. I have been riding all my life, my dad got me started when I was 6 on a XR75 and I've ridden every thing inbetween ever since. Keep in touch, and thank you inventors of this site.

Talking hi ya

I hear ya bout us being looked at differently (i'm a chick too )
Whenever I went into bike shops with my best friend who was riding too, they always asked him what his bike was, assuming i was on the back. I always loved the look on their faces when I said what my bike was too.
Oh well, we are friends no more, and I get to ride alone.
If I were in the area, I'd so love to go for a ride with ya, but I'm a little far away.... Riding with people is so much fun! Well, assuming they have a compatible style (ie: not really agressive when you arnt or whatever) Oh well, I may be down there some day, there's a wedding i'm supposed to go to in the fall in San. Fran....
I'm not that tiny, well, I'm thin but 5'8", so I can ride basically any bike, cept for a KLR650 you know how tall they are?? lol
Well, welcome to SBW, these guys are my family
Happy riding
Laura!

Welcome to the forum.
Great.... all we need are pink sportbikes

There really needs to be more women riding bikes IMO. Need someone who can enjoy riding as much as me, and isn't on the back of MY bike

Good to see so many girls on here!!!

I'm just a noob, but I will admit that I love the attention. It's even more fun than telling a guy that I drive a stick shift in my car!!! Not even driving a standard really compares to biking... Gosh, what a rush!!!
