I Ride: 2006 ZX6R-636
Here in Miami there are plenty of female riders... most have cruisers, choppers and baggers but there are a few that really enjoy their sport bikes.

why don't you start an all lady MC in your area or join one that's already on the set. Create a meetup.com account for your group and host your own bike nights, eventually others will catch on and you'll have weekly meetup's with your girls and whoever else happens to come by ;P

What's wrong with a 250?

Even if you were on a 250 the ignorant remarks don't stop. I have heard my fair share of them.

I Ride: 09 monster edition zx6r, 09 zx6r - track bike, 09 ninja650
I watched a 15 year old beat all the men/ladies at the track who were all riding much larger bikes. It was an awesome site to see him kick their butts on a small bike. That is where it's up to the rider to have skills and not rely on the bike.

@red107: I can understand your frustration as your POV is very different than you're gf depicted. (Personally, for me reading your version makes me feel better about myself I didn't start out like that at all.)

Before getting my license I had NO riding experience. I think the fact I can drive a stick shift car helped me grasp the concept on a motorcycle quickly. I practiced in a parking lot for a few days. My first time on the streets was on a small group ride. They were very understanding and tolerated my 50 mph on the highways my first time. LOL It helped to see and follow them on curves. Being around another girl in the group inspired me and gave me confidence in myself, too. After that, every weekend we were doing a group ride with different people. I got to learn different riding styles of others, and what style I wasn't ever going to be a part of. I love the twisty backroads and can do that for hundreds of miles.

I personally cannot imagine jumping onto a 600+ bike my first time ever and learning. I guess that's just me and we all start with what we think we are comfortable with. But, I am petite, and a 250 feels just right under me. I had mine lowered 2" so I could at least reach the ground with my toes.

Being a girl on a bike, sometimes I get props but once people see I'm on a 250 or find out I get the "awww, are you new?" or "oh, is that it?" or "well I started on a <insert a bigger bike here>"

LOL My response would have been "Judging by your riding ability, you probably should have considered something smaller."

Here in CA it's pretty much par for the course to see women on sportbikes, on the race track, and passing people who are riding much bigger bikes on 250's. It's all about the rider not the bike.

my first bike i was 9 years old it was the smallest our dirtbikes a 1992 honda 100r slowest thing on planet earth redlines in lile 2 seconds i ride a zx6r now and i must say that i would much rather prefer a wr250x (supermoto 250) even a 250 would be nice they are in all standards of commuting a better bike , i have a 125 that i smoke pro's on at the track riding their big 510's , its really is all about skill and the next time some one hurrasses you say thi
1. you bought a bike liking the fact that you will get good gas well a 250 gets up to 65mpg ( last i checked ) thats twice what they are getting .
2. i can manuver twice as fast as you can on your big bike , ( if something fell of a truck id be screwed if i was less then 2 sec behind him )
3. my bike wont put me into situations i cant handle , and i am 10x more likely to live longer , as i wont be running into trucks at +180mph because i can only do 95 .

from my point of view if i hadnt hand built my zx6rr from a pile given up bike parts i would trade it in a heart beat for a 250 , and i support your decisin of getting a 250 first it proves your are the wiser and it proves how much you want to ride and ride again , cheers to you and please always wear your gear!, zen

I agree that skill does make you much faster than money...but when I went down to the AMA race in Elkheart Lake WI, there was so much money in those bikes it was crazy! Skill will get you there but performance wins trophys and that R1 Josh Hayes had was fucking at one point he no shit was 10 seconds ahead of the competion!

But if not for skill he wouldn't be 10 seconds ahead of the pack. Skill > mods IMHO.

Put me or you on that R1 superbike and we'd still be in the back of the pack since there are riders on the track with much better skill. Even if we're onthe best bike.

Girl (don't pay attention to the nickname), just joined this forum, riding since 2010.

I got support from my family at the beginning cuz I could convince them that I would use a bike for transportation only

After riding my 2nd bike for two seasons now, Fellow riders started to kick me out of the street riding crowd cuz I take bikes too serious. Do my own mechanics (guys get scared when a girl knows more than they do) and practice hard on my riding skills, surpassing most of the parking lot sitters.

I do get tons of support from the serious street riding sportbike crowd. So far I was given 2 sets of tires, new front rotors (old ones where warped by prev owner), tons of gas (student), tank, right side fairing and stuff for some of the 6 oil changes for this 1 summer.


My mom bought me a full 2pc leather suit, gloves, race boots and paid my bike maintenance ($1200) to prepp for 2012.


Again, I gained lots of haters because they're jealous and just see me performing like they wanted to the whole 3-10yrs they've been putting around town and tagging along group rides.
Whenever I fully enter the track riding, I just gain another set of haters cuz the rich people upgraded just everything to have the best bike ever but still get passed by a girl on a stock machine. It's going to happen.



So far no one asked me about the T-Mobile girl. They know I hate pink
