I Ride: '12 1199 Panigale S Tricolore
One of the reasons I enjoy riding is because I found motorcyclists tend to be a bit more independent and NOT worry so much about PC silliness and worrying about what might be “offensive”, please don't ruin it for me.

Last Summer, I took the level 1 class with California Superbike School and noticed some females riding their own S1000RR. Will be continuing with level 2 and 3 this Spring and Summer so maybe I'll see more females. I had started a thread awhile back to see if there were any female 1199 riders. I don't think I got many responses.. maybe 1?
This is the infamous Ducgrl whom I met at the DC Bike Show. She just overheard me talking to someone about my bike and asked "Are you Gunny Fitz?" so it couldnt have been timed better! Any female who rides a Panigale is awesome in my book!

On the issue of "slang" and all this other jazz, please consider the entire thing dropped ok? I understood what Cobra was saying and truly applaud him for noting his apology. Water under the bridge so lets drop it and move on everyone. Cool?

I will be putting together a group of riders from this area (or anywhere else in Northeast) to do a track day / riding school hosted by my friend Glen Goldman who owns Team Pro Motion. I would love to do VIR since I also have great connections to obtain the awesome suites which are located directly over the garage bays on the straight there. These are fantastic rooms which anyone who has stayed in them can attest. Alternative tracks are Summit Point, NJMP, or the NC one. There is also a new track in NY he mentioned as well. Open to thoughts or ideas on this issue and date.

Glen has a myriad of great Instructors / Control riders and I have spoken with him about super discounted rates for the event. For those who have not been to his events it's a must for a unreal time!

Home Team Pro-Motion

Anyone interested in attending with this group should PM me their email address, experience level and choice of track. I will compile a list and work with Glen and staff about rates. Btw- he also has an awesome tire truck at every event who sells and mounts the best tires! yes, Pirelli's as well.
Love to have as many female riders as possible, those who have never been on a track, and of course you seasoned riders/ racers!

Thanks much and I will keep you posted. Obviously it wont be until Sping or Summer, but not too hot you will need a Gatorade IV!
Thanks from Cobra700

gunny you know i am in but it has to be after i come back from yamaha. i cant take the 1199 out on the track without ever having a track day. im sure scott (russell) and Nick will have me where i want to be. Then i will be more comfortable riding the pani on a track (many times)
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

Certainly in the bay area there are a lot of female riders. I would also add that the female riders I have encountered ride exotics and run of mill and I even seen a few classic bikes.

My women also rides.

Just to provide some additional input, Alice's Restaurant in Woodside, California is a very pop biker hang out, check out the attached pictures. If you want to meet female riders there are lots of them at Alices.

My neighbor is female and she has a 1098 and a Pani. It confuses my dog when she comes home from work since I usually get home before she does and my dog thinks I am coming home again.

I Ride: 1199 and M796 & Others
I was riding on my Monster over the weekend through the canyons on Mulholland Drive here in LA with my daughter on the back, we were passed (rapidly) by a woman on a Pani win a full white track suit, she seemed to be a extremely competent rider.

Its awesome to see these be ridden hard and fast by anyone


my daughter wanted us to catch up to her so she could say Hi !

My 1098 is an SF and hers is the superbike, but yeah, total coincidence.

If this was the case, then I would have a really high proportion of Japanese than any other race.
Of course those people who make Hondas,Suzukis etc are more,much cleverievereer more more much clevered than us dumb Euro nobs. Its cos theys eat lots of fish brain food dont ya know? haha
