I would love to! However, even though I live in AR, I'm in CA at the moment. I'll be back in AR mid November - hopefully it won't be too cold to ride then!

Saved it, did you? For future reference, perhaps? (no worries; Ryan's a good guy. Easy on the eyes, too )



Thanks for the offer, but through the miracle of mod powers, I could read what he posted.

Hey Dragonfly, I bought the Thor Compression suit in small (for guys) & it fits perfect! I am about a size med to small in most shirts. It fits great under my regular enduro jacket with the pads removed then I can take the jacket off if it gets too warm & just throw a dirt shirt on over top. I love it!!

The sixsixone was way too expensive & probably about the same quality. Mine only cost about $130

I was down at CycleGear and tried on an Alpinestars Bionic "Stella" pressure suit in size Medium, and it fit very well.
It is a women's-specific pressure suit, and I think I'll get one for next spring. Price on the Alpinestars is $199

Hi Dragonfly! I have the Alpinstar Bionic "Stella" in a Med. and it fits me pretty good. I can't fit a lot underneath it (usually just a long sleeve polypro type shirt), but I can put plenty of loose layers over it for colder days. I like the fact that it has molded bewbie parts, cuz I got bewbs. It's pretty comfy and feels very protective!

The only thing that might be an issue for you is the length. You are a whole lot taller then I and it fits me pretty good length wise

Ok, so now I have 32k on my bike since the last post. It looks like I'll be doing the school in Hallett, OK on 11/18. I'm not sure if you'd be interested. I've hitched myself a ride up there (I don't have a truck), but I needed to work on my skills.

I'm still cool with doing some riding some time with other locals. We may be going to Jasper on Sunday with some friends. Ca depends. We are doing the puppy run tonight and tomorrow. (another thread) I'm running a puppy to Fayetteville.

PM me if you are in the Central Arkansas area and would like to ride here or in the Northern or Central Northern part of the state. Hwy 341 (I know Snuffy who takes pictures up there), Hwy 123, Hwy 74, Hwy 43, Hwy 16...all those beauties.

OK, there's ton of information all over the ADVrider forums about this topic and probably even some here in this thread but I'm wanting to get the most current opinions from you gals here so I'm going to ask.

Because a girl can never have too many motorcycles I want another one. I'm in the market for a tiny dual sport bike, tiny as in 200 to 250 ccs. I'm short, 5'0" so the KLX250 is out right from the start but there are a number of others I've considered.

I would like to hear what any of you who own and ride the smaller dual sport bike have to say about your bike of choice. Tell me what you like and don't like about it. If you've had one in the last five years or so and have moved on to something else tell me about that too.

For me I want to be able to tour on it, taking longish trips involving a lot of gravel roads and trails but yet hitting the pavement too. I already have my F650GS and I like it for trips that are more along the lines of 80% pavement 20% gravel roads or so. With a smaller dual sport the trips will be more along the lines of 80% off pavement 20% pavement, and the off pavement will be a bit more technical than I want to tackle with the F650.

OK ladies, I anxiously waiting to read what your thoughts are.

Sorry, was talking about overall miles on my bike. It has been about 1K miles in a month or so.

I want the heated gear so my cold-ass can keep riding, though.

Yeah, pink is for pu$-ys. You don't have to be one, just becasue you have one.

Please don't kill me. I really don't mind if other people wear pink, I'm just really sick and frickin tired of being treated like someone's motorcycle accessory who is oh-by-the-way...fat too.
