A Passion for Motorcycles

by Tolani
(Washinfton, USA)

Hi there :)

I just googled female motorcycles and found this site. I'm 19 years old and live in Washington. I have a passion for motorcycle but yet I haven't rode one before. I've thought of getting one but never been taken seriously about it. Today I finally went and looked at some and found one that I really want. I'm in love lol. My only issue is that everyone keeps giving me crap about getting one. I really want one and I feel it would just complete me and make me happy, but everyone else seems to think it's a waste of money and that I'm going to "kill myself" on it. I'm 5"3 and 110 lb, if that makes a difference but I just would like some advice on what kind of bike and what to do about everyone else.

Motorcycle passion
by: Skitta


I understand your passion! For the past several years, I had wanted to ride a motorcycle. I signed up for the safety course and completed it last August. Sadly, one of my cousins was killed while riding his motorcycle last July. I thought, there's no way I can get my motorcycle license! But, I did because it was something that I wanted/needed to do for myself. I now own my own bike; a 1984 Suzuki GS400e.

If you decide to get your license, please take the safety course first! Then, when/if you are ready to purchase your own motorcycle, find something that is right only for *you* :)

Take care.

Follow your passion. You can't let others dictate what you can and cant do. Take the safety course, get the appropriate gear and ride on.

Take the rider safety course. It's made all the difference in my skills. And make sure that you get a bike that fits YOU. Not what other people think you need or even what's cool or awesome to ride. A bike that fits you and your size will be a big factor in your riding skills. Sure I can ride a "bigger" bike, but would rather not and feel safer on mine. It's fits me. I have a V-Star 650. Perfect for me. Find your own!

I too have that passion, and at 45 I decided to get my license and a bike. I started out with a Honda 450E (1983, I think). It's a cruiser type. I love it. Then I decided to switch to a crotch rocket and got a Kawasaki Ninja 250R. It's lovely and I fee so free and alive on it. I still have my Honda, just in case I feel like "cruising". You will so enjoy it. I even rode all the way out East (PQ, NB, NS, PEI) over 6000kms the year after getting my license! It was quite a vacation. If you want one, get one, be safe and enjoy!
