I've seen some females on dualsports and supermotos around here, seen one with what I assume is her boyfriend several times following on a KLX250

It's quite special, that's for sure. There is one woman who lives on my street who is a daily rider on her CBR600, however. Good for her. Especially in this fucking weather.

No shit....

My CBR1kRR hit 240 degrees at 830 this morning. F'n traffic... Also nearly got taken out twice by the same guy within 5 mins.

If it wasn't for that brief stint on HOV that can save me 20-30 mins commuting time, riding just wouldn't be worth it.

You're spot on with the lawyers, though. They're all posers no matter what they ride, because they're pretending to be human beings. ;)
(This thread needs more bike photos)

My wife. Dental Hygienist. Likes fighting (Army Combatives Level 2 trained). Did all the mods herself.

You need to get on the ADV Gals group on Facebook....just saying.

Thankfully, Silke found me and hauled me in. Now just to ride out through our huge country and actually meat people. I have met one cool lady from MI already. Hopefully will make it to the Dragon in Oct to meet up with SxyRdr and a few others.

I feel for you folks. Here in California we can legally split lanes so commuting by bike *always* saves time in heavy traffic.


Too bad my KLR is down for the count so it's four wheels for me. Who would have through it wouldn't like running after suddenly losing all its oil. Too bad Kawasaki didn't include an oil pressure gauge.

Well you should meet my wife then. She was adv riding before it was adv riding! 35+yrs.' and counting.
Ok, sorry for continuing with the hi-jack of this thread.

Two guys are talking. One guy says, you know, all lawyers are assholes. The other guy says, wait a minute, I resent that remark. Guy says, I'm sorry, what, are you a lawyer? Other guy says, no, but I am an asshole.

You won't be getting a ton more HP with a 630, but once it's dialed in its smooth and torquey. When it's rebuild time it's getting a high comp piston. I'm only at around 14000 miles right now, long way to go before then hopefully.

It would do 110 with stock sprockets, cruise all day at 70. 75+ gets a little buzzy
