Where are the female riders?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Pobblebonk, Dec 4, 2010.

  1. Hi ladies!



    I'm sure there's probably already been a thread or two for the females on the forum [if you're out there] who aren't pillion passengers but actually ride their own bikes, but I couldn't find a recent one so apologies for creating a new one, mods.

    Just wondering who out there in Netrider land are the girls who ride?

    What do you ride?

    How long have you been riding for?

    What gear are you wearing?

    Where are you getting it from? [Asking because I'm having trouble finding stuff for me!]

    New Question: Do you have a nickhame for your bike?

    Hope I get some replies!

  4. There are no real females on the internet - everyone knows that.

    I pretend to be a girl now and then :D

    Ride a z750 - being naked is better!

    Riding for a while

    A* & Daniese

    Both sets of leathers and winter gloves from Peter Stevens, boots from 60 degrees, summer spidi gloves from Yam City

  7. Welcome to the forums, Pobblebonk!

    I'm currently on a CBR600 and have been riding since mid last year. I got most of my gear online after trying stuff on in store first to check sizing, was a cheaper option. Hopefully catcha out on one of the Brissy rides. :D

  8. LOL Hi Holster! Thanks for replying!

    Nice bike! Would be too big for me though! I just bought a Sachs 150cc about a month ago - gotta start somewhere! :)

    I didn't have too much trouble finding a leather jacket. I managed to find someone who had XXS helmets. Still looking for pants. Having a LOT of trouble finding gloves. The XXSs don't fit me, and the only smaller ones they make are for motocross, so they've had to order me some in.

  10. Hi PeskySheepy! Thanks for the welcome. :) I am eventually going to upgrade from the 150 but I have no idea what to, it was hard enough deciding what to buy for my first bike [happy 30th birthday me], I'm still so 'new' to it that the thought of riding something bigger is a bit daunting for me, particularly when they're usually always tall for me. I've been reading all the recommendations on bikes for the hobbit-sized people on the forums :)

  11. You'll be suprised what you can ride - I can only get my toes on the ground on my current bike & I've ridden bikes I can't touch the ground on at all, I'm not tall at all
