Women in Leather driving Bikes

Saw a woman today, al of 90 pounds with leathers, driving a Goldwing.
She was definatly standing up, with both feet planted on the ground.
If she were another two inches shorter, she would not have been riding.

Who says bike weight is a problem,
and I drool easily.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.

My bad - I should have specified full leathers! I'm not counting (and still trying to purge) all my sightings of big mama in a 6-cow vest with her arm fat swingin' and belly bouncin'.....

Re: Women in Leather driving Bikes

It's the GOLDWING boys! Such a fine machine...Low center of Gravity, low seat height and balanced VERY well. I'm tellin' ya, it does NOT handle like a heavy bike.
