I Ride: Tricolore With A "Few" Mods
Female Riders

In my 26 years of Ducati ownership, racing and sales I have only known 3-4 ladies who seriously know how to grip it and rip it. I was fortunate to meet Duc Girl at the DC bike show but dont know of any other female Ducati fanatics here on this forum.

Curious if any of the ladies here would mind chiming in about themselves and their current bikes? Not to sound anti feminist at all but I truly think its attractive as hell and would love seeing some hardcore racing / riding pics!

I can openly admit some females I know can ride circles around me for sure, and am proud to call a few AMA pros my friends (Melissa Paris) so thought Id see who wouldn't mind speaking up here?

I was thinking about this yesterday. I know maybe a handful of women who ride, none who ride exotics (especially those my age). One had an Aprilla, once... lol

There were some fast women at the MRA, but I'm referring to the street.

My girl tried to get an 848 last summer but had to go for something that could get lowered more, as the 848 was to tall for her. She was VERY disappointed. She ended up with a zx6r.

Very true, I forgot since I am taller, but Duc's and Euro bikes are pretty tall.

Haven't met one riding a Duc,but I did get seriously smoked on the by a ridiculously hot girl at the Streets of Willow. She rode a BMW r1000r and was absolutely fearless in the corners.....very impressive on ALL levels. Cheers!
