I have a '96 Honda Shadow. Some day I'll have enough dough for a Harley. My hubby has an '05 Anniversary Edition Fatboy. I wish I had good pics! I'm dying to get a side car for the dog

I have a 2002 HD Lowrider. I've been riding since the early 80's. Of course I don't have any pics on this pc lots of dog pics of course. I ride almost every day, if not I'd be late for work all the time, on the bike I can get in the HOV lane. If my bike wasn't sitting in front of the bosses window I'd go outside and take a pic but I'm on the switch board right now.

Not the best picture because I didn't want to try to push it out of the pole shed. I am a back seat rider only. My husband bought this Norton Commando new in 1975 just before Norton went out of business. We spend most of our sunny Sundays going somewhere just to look at the scenery or have lunch.

Ok so here's my other girl. I got this bike in 2004. I bought it from a guy who thought he wanted to be a biker but his wife said "no way". It only had about 3,300 miles on it so it was like brand new for an excellent price.

I rode for several years until my daughter came along. I started out on a little Ninja 250, then a CBR600. My last bike I had before I got pregnant was a beautiful, brand new Yamaha R6. It was dark red and black and I powder coated the pegs, clutch, and brake black and took off the decals so it looked so clean. I bought the bike in October and got pregnant in January. However, I did put a little over 2000 miles on it during that time. I miss it so much!!

My next bike will be a Harley since I married into a Harley family. My husband's uncle owns several Harley stores in KY and I think I may be disowned if I get anything else. I've already got it picked out

Very nice, Sporty's are a tuff bike to ride. I had a 1200, very fast, very loud and it's kind of hard to explain but the ride is much different. I didn't want to get rid of it when I got the Lowrider. I have a beach stone driveway and have to back out of my garage and cut my turn to get out, the lowrider is about 200lbs more than the sporty and I wasn't sure if I could do it. I think because it sits lower it was no different backing out.

They just look so clean and I love the smooth shaping tail. I think they really hold up to their name and I feel like it's a nice transition for someone who is used to sport bikes. I'm not gonna lie, I am very worried about the weight though. I looked at the 1200 but I'm thinking it will be too much bike for me. I better start off slow since it's been a while since I've ridden and since I have a pretty reckless past

I get so excited when I hear about other female riders! I only had a couple to ride with around here. Kudos to you!
