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!

My first track event with TPM last year was an eye opener....women literally running circles around the guys and looking great while doing it.

They were also very nice and lent great info on techniques based on their observations without any 'tude! (didn't know they were watching so closely!)

Nothing hotter than watching a girl pop her helmet off and letting her hair down while the molten rubber on her tires shows who the boss was out on the track!

My wife is no pro racer, but I'm very lucky that she rides, rides an exotic, and likes track days.

'10 RSV4 Factory with full Ti superbike exhaust and race map. She's short but won't lower it. She just 'Pedrosas' it at stops

My wife rides a Monster and Kawasaki Ninja, the Ninja lets her flat foot it and she feels more comfortable knowing that she can do that.

She loves the power of the Monster and she is waiting for the baby Pani to come out, we will sell the Kawi and the Monster and she will only ride that.

She likes fast cars too, i love women that ride well, and I agree, I too have known some women that can ride circles around me and many men that think they are good riders. I think their hips are well suited for grab the the tank and use their weight to maneuver quickly

It's an anthropological fact that the Japanese are generally shorter than Europeans. Why are people so upset about this?

The Japanese also have higher IQs, on average, than Europeans do. Is this also wrong to say?

In my personal opinion, yes it is wrong to say as your painting and ranking entire cultures. Listen, I have a wide domination of employees whom most are PhD educated and hail from the four corners of the world. I spend a fair bit of time in Europe and I deal with Japanese and their culture. 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.
