What an amazing video! Looked like you guys were having a blast out there!

I'll have to post some pics as soon as I bring my bike home. Can't wait!

Hello Ladies,

This is my first post. I currently ride a 2006 Honda VTX1300C, this is my fifth bike, having worked my way up from smaller displacement bikes. I don't have a picture yet (this was my Christmas present from my husband). Since the weather's been bad, I've kept busy adding farkles to my baby (windshield, engine guard, with a new seat & risers on the way). I'm looking forward to some nice weather.

Hi All:

New to the forum but not to the internet. ;) I currently ride a '98 Triumph Trophy and an '01 SV650, as well as riding dirt bikes with my 16-year old daughter (CRF230s). I also lead a women's riding group (www.dangerouscurves.org) and just started a new touring company, NorthStar Moto Tours - By Women, For Women (www.northstarmototours.com).

Given the fact that about 20 years ago I said I would NEVER ride a motorcycle again, there are times when I open my garage door, look inside, and wonder who the heck lives there!! :laughing: Anyway, here are a couple of pics of me and my "babies"... ;)

Tyler- I rarely post in the Ladies Lounge, but Trophys get my attention, seeing as we have one in the family. That pic of you and the Trophy looks vaguely familiar - did that display on the Yahoo Trophy Group once upon a time?

That bike is impressive! IMO Your daughter is pretty brave to ride a bike like that it's huge. I would never get on a beast like that. How many CCs is that?

Not sure... I know I registered on the RAT forum but not sure if I did on the Yahoo TG... so many forums, so little time... :laughing:

Oh, my, no, my daughter does not ride street yet, just in the dirt! The Pig (my affectionate nickname for the Trophy) is all mine, all 700+ lbs and 1200 cc's of her. :D

The only time it seems really heavy is very slow speed or stopped. But when it's moving, it handles incredibly well! I'm lucky to have a 32" inseam so that helps with footing and I also had a custom Corbin seat put on it to give me a little more leg reach.

Thank you for the nice welcome. :) Yeah, dirt riding is a blast and she really likes how the boys react to her... "You ride a dirt bike? Whooooooaaaa... that's baad!!" :laughing:

Ah I saw your daughter in the picture standing next to your motorcycle so I assumed you were in the top pick with your bike and she was in the bottom pic with her bike.

I have like a 30" inseam and it's a PITA to find pants or bikes. I couldn't even flatfoot most of the sportbikes I sat on!

No actually that's me in both pics (different haircuts/color), with the Trophy and the SV, and the two of us in the dirt biking pic in Moab in the third pic. :)

Wow I couldn't tell.

I guess part of the formula to the fountain of youth must be leather pants! You look 20 in that picture! ;)
