What Gunny is saying saying here is Japs = Derogatory which was used in WW II. Japanese is a correct way to say. Its almost as same as saying Chinks for Chinese.

People are people defined by their experiences and culture. I have not experienced anything that would say that Japanese have on average higher IQs than Europeans. If this was the case, then I would have a really high proportion of Japanese than any other race.
Japanese is actually an ethenticity or nationality, not a race. Maybe you mean Asians.

Whoops, I appogize guys. I only meant Japs as a short way for Japanese. Didnt even think of it in a derogatory way. And only meant Japanese because of Hondas, Suzukis, Yamahas, kawasakis etc....

In conclusion, bad on me. Sorry guys.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz and 1199 dreamer

Hi Gunny and everyone! I know there was another female that purchased a 1199 last year. I don't know too many females riding 'exotic' bikes but I do know some females that ride R1s and CBR1000s. Last Summer, I took the level 1 class with California Superbike School and noticed some females riding their own S1000RR. Will be continuing with level 2 and 3 this Spring and Summer so maybe I'll see more females. I had started a thread awhile back to see if there were any female 1199 riders. I don't think I got many responses.. maybe 1?
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

My wife rides the Triupmph 675R. It is a glorious thing to see. She goes to work geared up, and has her blonde hair out the back and high heels strapped to the back of her camelback....hilarious. And has no problem riding my Tri, or my old RSV4. Safe to say she gets a few looks, it's awesome.

That 675R is really somethning else, and ideal for women as narrow as the straight tripple is.

Oh...I am an Asian rider and yes, 'Japs' is a derogatory word but I knew what you meant. Thanks for responding and clarifying.

For clarification, the girl in my avatar is not my wife. My wife is several years older than that.
