Hey Hey from Southern California

Postby Kapooch » Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:49 am

Hi All,

I just joined the forum and hope to meet lady riders in my area as well as learn tips and tricks that you all have to share. I promise to share my own once I've gained a bit more experience :)

I'm 30 years old and have been riding offroad nearly my entire life - I just completed my first desert race back in April and it was such a fun and exhilarating experience, I plan to race many more events starting in the fall.

As I get more involved motorcycles and see more lady riders out there, I realized I just had to get into street riding as well. I just purchased a 2014 Yamaha Bolt R-Spec last weekend. I hope to start racking up the miles here soon!

Hey Kati,

Wow! You have LOTS of dirt experience ... nice! And speaking of nice, love your new bike :D

Check a little further down the "Introduce Yourself" list and find ChocolateCakeRulez. She's close to your age and in LA.

I'm closer to San Diego and almost twice your age! :lol:

Enjoy the forum, I've met so many wonderful women here.

Hi Kari and welcome, glad to have you here. I've never done dirt but am thinking all that experience should transfer to street pretty quickly.
And we like pictures ;) .

Not stopping now.

oooooooooooh! Love the color on the Bolt! Sweet, very sweet ... and speaking of sweet ... nice air on your desert race :o

Are those the GoGo Gear kevlar leggings you're wearing? I tried 'em but they didn't fit my chubby legs :cry:

Good eye on the gear, Leslie! I ordered them based on my measurements and the size chart (they're a few sizes up from my normal size) and they fit great and are very comfortable. The knee pads bothered me after a few hours of riding on my last ride, but I think I just had them positioned incorrectly.
