I am a woman and I have had my license for about 12 years now. I have been riding for well over 30 because I started out as a kid on a dirtbike my Dad got my brother and I. I ride a 450cc Honda Rebel that is fuscia in colour. My helmet matches my bike. My kids thought it was great when I picked them up or dropped them off at public shool when the were younger on the motorcycle. My husband has a bike too and we used to go on family day outings with picnics when the kids were younger alot. We go to see the country side and have a day together. They loved it. I can't ride at all anymore due to a disability!! I am so mad about it. But I kept my bike so far because I am not willing to give it up yet. I might get better some day. So what do you ride? How long have you had your license?

I do not have a driving license, I try to learn to drive when I was on my 20s and then I found I have a vision problem, and basically I am low vision in one eye, and legally blind on another, I can see well to defend myself but not well enough to drive, If I could I would drive a pink motorcycle, that will be great

Oh that's too bad about your sight. I have hearing issues so I can sympathize. I really hope I can get back on the bike next summer. This year is basically done because of the weather and my balance issues. GGGRRRR!! I haven't been on since last summer. I miss it so very much!!!

You go and drive that motorcycle whenever you can for the both of us, I hear they give a sense of freedom, but also please do be careful.

Oh I am careful that is why I haven't gone this summer. I have Meniere's Disease which is the imbalance of fluid in my ears. Since April I have had vertigo attacks among other symptoms daily. Some attacks lasting for up to 8 to 11 hours at a time. There is absolutely no warning at all for these sudden dizzy spells/vertigo attacks. So going on the bike was out of the question.

I have a Suzuki SV650S. I've been riding motorcycles for a year now. I started to ride as soon as I got my license. People at my work think that it's cool to see a girl drive a motorcycle. I just learned this week that another female at my work just bought a motorcycle, after seeing me drive one. My boyfriend also drives motorcycle's and races them. He drives a Thumpstar 50cc pocket bike, Suzuki GSXR 750, and a Suzuki DRZ400.
