I think the only thing holding girls back from beating guys on a MC road track is the lack of support from an early age.

I'd like to see more female racers.

There was an oriental girl on the track this wednesday that was fast, really fast. She waxed almost everyone on the track. She is easily identifiable by her black and white tiger suit and her black 636. I talked to her for a bit, and she said she does at least one track day a month, and did 4 this past month. It hurt to get beat bad by her, but it did add incentive for next time. Back on topic, men can open jars better, so there.

You arent kidding, even of the track.

My first and only mtbike race was a few yrs back, and there was one girl that just waxed almost everyone!
Out of 90 riders, she was in the top 10, and I think there were only 14 girls that even entered.

This course was pretty demanding, and requires lots of strength, not just skill.

That would be Dawn, ya shes gotten alot faster.  Last year I was following her around SOW on my 125, I doubt I could keep up now.  Shes a regular over on  Socalsportbikes, you might want to check it out, alot of local riders.  Of course shes gone down a few time on Palomar this summer, hence the new 636's (shes got two along with her ZX6

Mike

edit: BTW, her nick over there is Vyshtia

If you were at Willow odds are that was Vyshtia (sp) or MovieStar handing you your a$$. Those girls can ride and there are a lot more in Socal that can kick butt on the track or street.

Either way we can open jars better as stated but, who is smarter there? About the only thing we have over them is writing our name in the snow and peeing on a wall from 3 feet away.

Outside of that I have met female body builders, olympic marathoners, and other sorts that would rock any mans world and meet them on any level, one even opening jars...

They can do anything better than us and what they can't do, they get us to do. So, they are much better MANipulators than us...

Guys in general seem to be more mechanically minded. When was the last time you saw a female mechanic?

Employed as a mechanic no, never. But have seen them in the automotive hobby shop changing oil and little things like that. Set me back a bit. Ya know, this is man's land NO INTERLOPING!!!!!!! Then again there thoughts on how fun clean-up could be?

HG, my mechanic is a woman - a very good one too!


As far as riding, I still don't see many women on the track. Men still far outnumber women. However the few of those that do ride are pretty quick. I've met a few that can outride just about anyone on the track.
