All the guys I ride with, support me and some have actually said they were impressed when they rode with me for the first time. We are like family to each other.

I have heard that! It usually comes from people on cruisers. It also doesn't help, that I wear pink gear and have pink rim tape on my bike. lol.



I'm 27 and this is my second season. Bought my first bike, 250r, in 2008. I totaled it at the end of that season. Finally been able to afford another, so I got the 08 zx6 this spring. I LOVE IT! I have about 10k seat time total.

I'm surprised your bf is your worst supporter! You would think, he would be happy that you ride your own and can enjoy it with him. If you decide to do a track day in Ohio, let me know! I'm considering doing one myself next season, but don't want to go alone! I don't know where Ft. Wayne is, but I'm only 45 minutes from Richmond. I live in Dayton.
I will def let you know if I go to the track day. I contacted them over the summer, but didn't really make it a priority. I think my second season of riding will be appropriate

A wise man once told me ride at your own pace and dont let anyone push you past your own skill level.

Thats what I did when I first started riding. Was a little nervous at first but its really the best way to learn. No cars going the opposite way!

I've only just now gotten around to perusing this thread.

I don't think I ever had a problem with support when it came to motorcycles. I mean, I've pretty much always done whatever I felt the need to delve into but when it comes to bikes, I've been pretty lucky. My dad and best friend were both present when I bought my first bike. They were also present when I crashed and almost died. And through all of it they didn't even think twice about remaining steadfast in their support because they know it's what I love.

Of course, not everyone thinks the same way. I've had people come up to me in fast food restaurants and inform me of how dangerous bikes are. I had a guy actually pointing his finger in my face and yelling at me because "You're going to get yourself killed. Women have no business on sportbikes." It is what it is.

It sucks that your boyfriend can't respect you, your aspirations, or your limits when it comes to motorcycles. Sounds like he has some growing to do. As for you, you will find a lot of positive encouragement at the track. There are a lot of people out there who are out there because they legitimately want to learn how to be more proficient riders and they tend to be very supportive of each other. The best part about it, is by doing track days you will end up progressing so much faster than you would learning my trial and error on the street; which means that you'll probably wind up quicker and more capable than the cronies you roll with on the street... maybe even your boyfriend.

Back in my day there weren't many women out on the track but nowadays you can also expect to find women who are of like mind, and you are sure to make fast friends with them (although there are always going to be those folks who are a little big for their britches, oh well). Hell, in my neck of the woods there is actually a track organization that is owned by a very cool, very nice young lady who started off riding on the streets. I am looking forward to working closely with her to help her promote her organization next season.

Anyway, there are, indeed plenty of ladies who ride on this forum and one of my first acts as moderator was to try and get a ladies specific forum up and running so that way there could be a place for us to outsource and get some feedback on things specific to our own respective predicaments. In the coming months I will eventually try to post up some more helpful stuff but I can't be the only one.

P.S. Do people ever mention to you...You are like the T-Mobile girl! I say No bitch the T-Mobile girl is like me
I don't see what's not to support. Its hot. Not like sexy but whenever you find a woman doing something different ie women that do mma or box it sets them apart from the normal stereotypes. Me and my fellow riders/infantryman fully support women riders....unless they ride better then us then its a crush to our ego and we just remain quiet....and go sit in a dark closet and cry lol

Haha was just talking about the tmobile girl today.

Onto the roar my friend works with lions I asked him why it didn't wasn't loud he said lionesses don't really roar its mainly a male lion/other cat think. Just sayin lol post op maybe.

Yay! I'm so happy MoM's brainchild of a woman's section is taking off!

Girls with bikes are awesome

Anyone sexist or discriminatory when it comes to women responsibly riding motorcycles swiftly tastes the back of my hand

Thumbs up

Any woman who can jump onto and handle one of these machines has my utmost respect. Make yourself happy and screw anyone who tells you shouldn’t or that you can’t do it, and if the people around you don’t support you , FUCK THEM! Surround yourself with better people who will support you! You will always have us here on this forum for support………..

P.S. Nothing more sexy than a confident woman on a Sportbike! Especially one who can out ride you!

Looks like you 2 will have to find some riding friends, and do some trips to visit them. At least you can go together!
