It does take a little bit of practice (+1 on not peeing into the wind!!)

otherwise some might dribble down your leg.


These are things that happen to guys as well.  Don't be thinking we have it made 100%, ladies.   Crazy

What ARE you ladies talking about?  Lol

On the topic of women riders, I'd like to point you to my new book. Yes, it's shameless promotion, but it is also to show off my lovely wife and daughter who are both accomplished motorcyclists. My wife, Caroline, is the rider in the main photo on the cover. My 18 yo daughter, Jeannine, appears several times inside the book and is a significant part of the Accompanying DVD.

I'm one lucky guy. We take all of our family trips together (now on 3 bikes) and attend several track days a year.
Check out the photo gallery and some video clips at the web site. http://www.ridinginthezone.com.

Carry on with whatever you're talking about.  Crazy

Yosh!!!  Gee...  I missed all the fun! Razz  I was supposed to be on that trip, but God smiled on me and gave me a nasty head cold, which sounds way better then what they went through  Lol especially as I'm such a coward!

I'm thinking the next time (and there will be) they decide on one of these I should follow in a support truck - Long Way Round-esk!

Hello,
I am not sure what sort of pool of knowledge i can contribute, Wink however, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I have been lurking on STN for quite some time, and last year met some of you at the STN gathering in John Day. I have crossed forum paths with Bluepoof on several occasions, and last year was fortunate enough to meet her in person in Austin, NV.

I am a still a newbie, having ridden only 4.5 years now, but I have grown through 4 bikes and covered 75K in mileage,which for many of you is simply traversing the country a few times!  I look longingly at your posted maps with all the places visited and aspire to filling in my map as well.

My home forum has always been pashnit, and I love the motor roads site, but I am striving to "get out" more this year. Lol Did a solo trip 2 years ago over seven states and two Canadian provinces, and hope to repeat some of it this summer.  Absolutely loved the country around Nelson, BC.  I mostly stick to the road less traveled avoiding the larger cities.  I'm not afraid of goat/dirt, but find my loaded Bandit not quite suited for many of the roads i attempt exploring!  Lol  Maybe time for bike number 5.

Hope to see many of you out on the road.  I always love seeing a helmet pulled off with a female rider underneath!   Thumbsup

That was so funny! Lol Peter couldn't believe that we just randomly bumped into someone I knew online at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. Wink

Holy crap! That's very impressive mileage for someone just getting into the sport! Welcome and enjoy your stay.

Hi, Donna!!! (I think, with the miles you've logged, you're certainly no longer to be called a "newbie")
