We are planning a tour to Sturgis, South Dakota. Will be gone for about 10 days. Would appreciate any input from any women tourers on how to pack, what to take. I will only be allowed one saddlebag! Thank you for your help.

I too made history last season in Road Racing with AHRMA. Along with three other women, this was the first time in the 30 year history of AHRMA that a woman has won a class championship. I won the Vintage Superbike Lightweight. I now get to race with 1z as my number.

Trikes are just as much fun as two wheel bikes without the worry of falling over, etc. You still get the wind in your face! And for us older riders (59, partner 70) they have allowed us to keep riding without a lot of worry. Many options out there, check out the Trike Riders Now

My husband and I started riding in 2005, me behind him, then in 2007 I got my Heritage Softail Classic. When the economy started to fall we sold his Ultra Classic with the decision to share my bike. Sharing has its downfalls, since I feel like I'm not riding as often as I like. Now my husband has a medical condition that causes some potential safety issues. So now I don't ride with him. As I'm reading this issue more than a few times I have noticed that women are choosing to ride a trike. It has always been my theory that it would not feel same, that riding with three wheels under you would lessen the ride.
I am rethinking this, a bit wondering if we shouldn't ride a trike or a Can-Am, more for his safety. I'm 60 now and maybe this would make a better choice for both of us. Does anyone have any input on this subject? What are the reasons for riding a trike over a motorcycle?
