hi ladies,

just wanted to share pics of my ride with all of you... it's an 06 ninja 500R, i bought it used but i'd say it looks almost new. my second time out i upgraded from abandoned parking lots to a quiet residential neighborhood. i love riding! i still gotta get used to the clutch control and i get a little nervous when i'm at high traffic areas like intersections or when guys pull up next to me in huge pickup trucks and yell out "hey look it's a girl! well what you waitin for? don't be scared!" while they wait for me to make my move lol... but so far so good. no mishaps, plus it helps to have an encouraging bf :)







whaddya think? :cool:

Wow, it looks like it fits you really well. I didn't even look at Joe Rocket when I was picking out a jacket. I'll have to keep that brand in mind for my next one. Thanks.

thanks silverzzr... it's not shown in the pic but i don't ride without my icon pursuit women's gloves either. they're super comfortable and work well with the summer heat. plus they give me added clutch control, lol

Looking good! Glad to see you are wearing gear and enjoying it.

Some guys out there can be a pain. I just ignore them. For some reason they just can't get over the fact that we like to ride!

It is great to have a supportive boyfriend. Does he ride too?

my bf does ride, but it's been a while so he's getting back into it too. he's fixing up his old honda until he can buy a new bike. i took the MSF course last year... passed with flying colours! :D

entropykat, can you recommend any brands for ladies pants and boots?

btw...LOVE the helmet.. :)



you asked about riding pants and i've been checking them out myself. i have a few in mind, mostly joe rocket brands like the ballistic 7.0 or the alter ego. i like that they are waterproof, have armor, and the removeable liners.

I have joe rocket cleo pants - crash tested - they're great!
I also have the icon standard boots that I got on closeout from motorcycle superstore for $40, and those were great too- horribly stiff at first, but just a couple times wearing them helped to break them in for a great fit

hmmmm, thanks for the info, i'll have to think about the icons... they fit right in my price range but i have kinda big/wide feet so i'm not sure how comfortable they'll be. sigh, it's never easy shopping for footwear... i'll def check out the cleo pants. how do they fit? i'm small, size 2-4 with narrow hips and big thighs (lol)... anyone tried the scorpion women's savannah?

thanks!!! :D

i saw the scorpion pants online, i'd have to try them on as well. they are definitely in the running. most of the textile pants make you look like the



i do like the looks of these dainese:
