"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.

hi ya

I hear ya bout us being looked at differently (i'm a chick too :D)
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 :rolleyes: you know how tall they are?? lol
Well, welcome to SBW, these guys are my family :D
Happy riding :D
Laura!

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

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 ;) :D

Good to see so many girls on here!!! :D

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!!!
