Women of Concours
« on: January 11, 2015, 05:32:13 am »
Just messing with you, Jim. Change it back if you want. I didn't start the thread, just the sheet storm. ;D
The funny thing is, my ZX14R has that same eco warning that you're riding like a girl, and has no secondary map to save fuel. What's the point? ::)


Oh, you wanted to see a pic?

I'm confused what the saying "ride like a girl" means?

Old school from the old boys club!


Doesn't carry as much weight as it use to, considering the women that race sport bikes today.

And I have snapped a couple of drive shafts on my Vmax leaving stop lights too hard. Time to grow up and slow down I guess.

I did that once about 4 blocks from my old house.....a couple of blocks uphill pushing it....thought I was going to die!  LOL
Ever since then I knew the secret to putting them back in.....funny how most don't.   Keep young!

LOL!  I was just waiting to see what you would say to his post.  :)  I think in this context, it could be a compliment if we try hard... maybe riding so well that the bike gets all lit up!  Or ECO because of having a lot of sense cents.

It's quite humbling coasting to a stop on the side of the road. I think I felt worse about the rapid RED line when they snap.
I think the hard part was removing the remaining shaft still connected inside the swingarm.

Compliment....really reaching,  but okay :) 

I'm unsure if I am the only woman on this forum. I know that there are a couple on the other site.

According to the forum stats it takes a lot of men to equal one good women....Male to Female Ratio:   77.5:1  ;)

This does beg the question, what is riding like a girl?  What is the definition of that?  I certainly don't think that riding in 'eco' mode denotes riding like a girl and as I'm writing this I'm not sure that I even understand that that phrase.  I can ride sedately or I can ride spirited with this bike and I do both depending on the situation.  You know, the more I think about that phrase the less I like it for either gender.  And I'd rather be a live girly man, than a dead he man if it means I don't ride around a blind curve at 80+mph without regard for myself or others.

Maybe this is what was meant:
Do not try to live forever on this earth. You will not succeed.
