Hi Kailey! strength comes with time - you'll be whippin' tires around like it's nobody's business before you know it!

Welcome Kailey!

You sound like you were meant for this place!


About your Dad, I understand more than I can express here.

But the adventure spirit and the call of the road with miles of soul renewing time with ones self is difficult for most people to understand.

It's harder for you because he's your Dad.

The best we can do for those that must answer the call is to love and support their choices and trust they will return to us.

He needs your emotional support to put his soul at ease. That's a hell of a lot to ask of one as young as yourself. But I can see the strength and courage in your eyes.


Check your PM's on this account.

I have been PM'ing with Kailey and just a few minutes ago I spoke with her Father Ron on the phone.

This was necessary to confirm his permission to allow Kailey to have her own ADV account since she is a minor. To safe guard her, she will be restricted/banned from the Basement.

There are some ends to tie up but we hope this will happen soon.

Ron was very OK with her having access and I hope this will give the young lady rider a place to share her own riding and wrenching stories.

Well, I’ve gone and done it…

I bought the domain name wrenchingwenches.com, .net and .org.

Holy SHIT, what have I’ve done?


The concept is to bring women together in a supportive learning environment where they can gain courage and confidence to work on and repair their bikes.

I hope men with the temperament and patience to teach will join as well.


A series of events and people popping out of nowhere to offer their services and help has given me the courage to attempt to start my own forum.

While traveling this September, I met Jon aka NikonsAndVStroms who offered his services to build a site if I ever wanted to build based on an idea I had.


Then this week somebody over on Kbikes.com Ocelot offered to walk me thru buying a domain and how to set it up.

AND he said he would host it for free!

http://www.k-bikes.com/forums/showth...856#post170856

Ocelot aka Davis and I talked on the phone and I got a good feeling about him.

Others have come forward like GSbiker, geode, Smithy and some from other forums to offer help and advise.


So, there ya have it.


There is also a HUGE amount of stuff that needs to take place and get done before it goes live, so it will be at least 3-6 months.












On a side note:

It was brought to my attention that ‘wenches’ might be seen as a bit demeaning term to use. The thought added that some women would see like that also.


I understand where the comment came from.


The word has less than a noble history. But its older meaning is that of a milk main, a woman of simple and poor means. http://www.audioenglish.net/dictionary/wench.htm


Yes, it has a dark side, but in America, it almost never used as a derogatory or demeaning term.


Among women, we often call each other wench or heifer, but only as a term of rough affection. Like men use bastard or some other sideways term that only close friends can get away with.


These are "slap on the butt" words, if you know what I'm saying.


I want to avoid looking too formal so as not to make people feel like they wouldn't be welcome.


I want it to sound fun and casual, like the way a garage does when the beers come out and everyone sits around looking at what they just finished fixing.



I would really like to hear your thoughts on what you would like in such a forum.

wrenchingwenches.com - I like it. It's a lighthearted name and I think a gal who's going to tear into her own bike will already have a sense of humor.

Good luck and lots of positive thoughts being sent your way for this to turn out just as you vision it.

Now about the name, truthfully I probably wouldn't visit a site with that name. In my circle of friends/workmates we would never call each other wench or heifer. Perhaps it's just different in different parts of the United States. Or it could just be me.

Here's to a successful forum.
