haha....His name is Jeff. He was holding the bike upright for me so I could feel how the bike fit and was explaining the controls before I went for the ride.

I received my AMA Women's Conference T-Shirt in the mail today. :roll:

The reason I had to wait was because the size large t-shirts they had were all scooped by the small women. The t-shirts were manufactured very small. The XL was also looking small, so I asked them a XXL.

I'm not sure who they figure will wear these....they must have ordered kids sizes instead of adult sizes....
An XXL would normally be billowing off me.....this is quite form fitting.

I got my video a couple weeks back. It was OK. Too many cruisers...sorry cruiser gals! But ya'll know there are more than cruising ladies on bikes!

Really, I know the AMA is in the middle of some changes right now but I'm not feeling very inclined to re-up my membership when it expires this month....Not with the leadership they had, or with the leadership they're bringing in.

Another newbie, just got off the bus...

Hi, my name is AllieX and I'm from Texas. I might be a little different because I've been riding for a while, like 14 years. Started with dirtbikes. Live to ride, ride to live and al that.

Recently divorced because my ex was going hard core and I couldn't take the trash. Also I didn't mind paying for him but when he became abusive to keep up his image, well...

Anyway, this Lounge idea is wonderful and I hope I can be a positive factor here.

I agree with you fully and so do the other 23 of us that came down from Sturgis in our group. I had been looking foward to this conference since its inception. But when I got there, I found an interesting fair but coming down from Sturgis, it's gloss was dimished slightly. It seemed to be running itself. I had a great time and met a lot of interesting people and gained a pound or two. :|

But I couldn't let things be and tried to engage the AMA officials in talking and I wasn't alone. And none seemed to be willing or able to answer our questions till they just refused to talk to many of us. I know I'm a Hawgette but I also work for a living and don't usually cause trouble. However, I felt a little unwelcome or unwanted. Maybe I should have brought my Airhead. The BMW people seemed to be having a good time.
:laughing:l

So I have a lot of unanswered questions. Motorcycling is going through changes and the enviorment we ride in is getting more dangerous. Bikers are finding themselves being priced out of exixtance. And no one from the AMA seemed to capable of making long term decisions at the conference. And I wonder what the AMA will do for us in the future.

As for too many crusiers, never happen. :mrgreen:

PawDawg, nice bikes, in particular the ST I just love that wine color.
So you said you came from Sturgis does this mean you and your fellow riders were from the Dakota's or just came through there? I go up there every year with a friend of mine, it's our weekend to go have fun.
