Those ladies are members of the H.O.G. with a co-worker of mine. I had made a post about their trip as they were making their trek.instygator said:
I`m setting here with my mouth open. What a great bunch of woman. I wish I could trust my wife with a bike. :roll: Hats off to the ladies. :wink:deeppurple52 said:My wife is 61 and rode 20,000+ miles last year. We have put in more than 2,000 miles since Thanksgiving in all kinds of weather. On many rides, she is the only chick out there. She is competent and handles her bikes well. You would never suspect she is a rider until you see her on her bike. Another friend didn't start riding until she was 78. She has been at it for 7 years now, but just sold her Softail Classic because it was getting too heavy for her. She rides every weekend with her son now. More power to all the ladies out there riding.
Enjoy the ride!

All women who ride are biker babes in my book!deeppurple52 said:Spirited...
A wonderful birthday (or Valentines Day or unbirthday) gift for your wife would be to enroll her in a MSF. It is great beginners training and will give you a partner to share the ride with. She needs to have a small bike to begin with, Shadow VLX or 750. You can pick them up very cheap. The Kawa VN 500 is also a great bike. I encourage all women to get off the back and on the front. Read April's post on this thread and you will understand.
My wife will have a new bike this weekend. She is going to look at an '03 Kawa 800, bags, shield, 1500 miles, low price (woo-hoo!) and only a mile or so from our house at lunchtime today. She has come a long way and also enjoys the ride. You don't have to fit the biker babe image to ride. I can't imagine riding without my wife along on her own bike. Just do it!
Enjoy the ride!
