Hey ladies, nice ride!

#1 Post by Karen » Tue Jan 10, 2012 11:28 am

Hi everybody,

I just joined the form and went on my first ride last Sunday. It was awesome meeting such a cool bunch of women. I was on the purple and yellow CBR600F2.

I live in Oakland and have been riding on and off for over two decades. On the way home I took Redwood Road (my favorite twistie.) The guys congregate at the entrance to the Lake Chabot campground, so I made a brief stop to say hi. An older guy asked me "how's it feel being the only hen in a flock of roosters?" I smiled and thought how different and pleasant was to hang with CU.

One of my goals for the coming year is to do a track day, I want to learn what my bike can do without all the dangers of the road.

I look forward to riding with y'all again!
