SAME here what I can remember anyway, interesting the negative hardcore connotations associated with female motorcyclists. Seems you have to be wild and mad with a high libido, or maybe the roar of the motor just bring that out? Answeres the forum topic "Ladies - Evil looks from nonriding women, why?" I forgot about batwomans motorcycle...

They don't seem to be written by women, do they? :laughing: Kind of reminds me of how female superheros were so amazingly shaped, and had such missile tiits in my brother's comic books. A lot of those MC ads had women with missile crotches--comin' right at ya'.

Gosh, I wonder who they could be marketing too?

But I loved the ones of the real women on real bikes--I don't mean Ann Margret or whomever. I'd have to review the piece to catch their names, but they were the pioneering women riders.

As a young lad on the brink of puberty, I always liked the BSA girls best. MAN I miss them! (they always looked so tall and thin and very British wrapped in the Union Jack) And yes that was before the first issue of Easyriders! (I got my butt beat if I got caught with Playboy but ER was ok with my Dad,I could also buy ER)

You know who I didn't see in that vid---- Sally Fields as the Flying Nun (remember the scooter she rode in the intro?)

Hey that was a walk down memory lane, I liked that video, where do I get one of those retro outfits? Wouldn't mind a retro bike too.
Flashback now I remember how I got the scar on the inside of my thigh.......um some 30+ years ago......rather have the gear.
I follow a new highway I haven't traveled before.
