That woman sliding through a turn is my absolute all-time favorite action shot. Having had a couple of tank-shift bikes, I can more than appreciate what the level of he skill must have been. (kinda cute, too)
I imagine the picture was taken sometime in the late 40's.

How old is this pic ?
If you look closely you'll note that thats a photo taken at a Drag Race. Judging from the safety equipment on hand, I'd say that that photo is Post War and almost certainly from the early 50's. The bikes crossed up because the rear tires spinning in 1st and shes ready for the 2nd gear upshift.

Presuming that the chick is maybe 22yo... Well, you do the math but if we had a time machine, I'd... Nevermind...

One thing I've learned about women riders is that, while most are pretty kool, a fairly large percentage are people with "Issues" and training in martial arts. Tread lightly boys!

I seem to remember the bike was built for Ewan McGreggor by a Dutch fella.

The Votex Bar & Grill put out a killer calander in '06. Wish I'da known it was a one year only deal, or I wouldn't have given my copy away. Anyway, I don't know if there's a way to get a full screen, but there are some great motorcycles and wimmin here;
