This is number NINE and she just started riding in '98. I've had just two.

I could not talk her into a small block but she did come home today with a new Road Star Midnite. Lots of chrome, saddle bags and a shield.

I don't think her FZ6 was very good on long rides. so it's gone.

See ya in Daytona.

Karen, Rick must be quite a guy to let you get more new toys than him in the past six years!!! Although, I can relate to his situation...he got the 502 Boss and the yearly-itch to look at other bikes somehow went away!!!

Rick, let her enjoy the new Road Star for a few months then start back on her about the small block. Did you see the article in the new Boss Hoss Country Magazine about the owners of the new California Boss Hoss Motorcycles dealership? They both ride Boss Hoss's. Victor Vert's wife, Shelly, is 5'2" and weighs 125 and handles her small block bike just fine!

There are few things that are cooler in this world then to see a confident woman riding her own Boss Hoss bike!!!!!!!!! My wife rides a Boss Hoss Trike and that is VERY cool itself, but it doesn't have the same WOW factor in my book.

You go Karen!!!

BD,

Don't push it. You'd hate yourself if you got her on one and something happened.

My bride rode on the back for 5 years, and loved being a passenger, then one day just decided she wanted to do it. Now has a Duece tricked out nicer than my Boss........rides just enough to enjoy it, but still likes to be on the back once the party starts.

Nothing sexier than a chick riding a scoot :lol: 8)

Thanks----the funny thing is my wife has the butt and would look Really good on the back!!!!! My daughter when she was younger loved my HD but this one is too loud for her. All of the soccer Moms want to ride as well as about half of her Team!!!! Lucky that she let's me fiddle with it as much as she does but with respect to the $'s that go into it--what she dosen't know dosen't HURT me!!

Conran----send me the gas money and I will ride up and take the wifey for a spin! I get between 6 and 8 mpg so send a lot!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

I am about 10 min from the airport-----hehe----do you really think anyone would give you a hard time over this? Oh Yeah---send more than $10 I burn about half 116 and half 93 but every once in a while go with 116--my pipes are white not black in the inside. Looks like it is going to warm up some so heavy gear will not be required just lots of leather!! :mrgreen:

Bill said " there's few things cooler than seeing a confident women riding a Boss Hoss " . My Cheryl has been riding Harleys since 1980 and is a very good careful rider . Here's a few pictures of her warming up for her maiden ride a couple of years ago . After these pictures were taken she took the Boss out on the road for a 30 mile ride . I got to ride the mini Harley that day . Felt like a mini bike .

Tim ,

I worry enough about her riding The Roadking . Not about her ability , but about some asshole wrecking her. In this house , I'm the "BOSS"

Jack They let us believe that

Cozaey has been riding for some time and bought her first serious street bike in 98. She did so if I would go to the school with her. I did just that also found out she was getting really bored riding behind me. I gave this a lot of thought and realized I don't want to get her hurt with me at the bars, so with her riding her own bike that part of the worry has been removed. I am still concerned but when I am coasting at 100 plus and ask her (on our talkies) how fast is she going she will say "Not to fast". I did worry about her for some time but she does so well now I am at rest with it.

Jack,

I hear you. Vicki is just going to start her 3rd season, and the first 2 were very low on miles. Plus last year we lost one of our best friends (unfortunately we were first on the scene) in a bad 3 bike wreck. She did make the decision on her own to start riding again and to continue it this year.

I am way more nervous now than prior to that accident, and would have been more than happy to sell her bike, but she wasn't going to be 'forced" to quit.

I really want her to enjoy the freedom, but I really am worried about the assholes who don't stop at intersections, change lanes or tailgate.....and some of those are 2 wheelers :oops:

Hopefully this summer I'll be down to semi-retired and we will get the chance to ride during the week and get her some good miles on. 'Cause no matter what anyone tells me, it's experience that makes you good....got to be so compfortable on the bike that all of the mecahnical things are just second nature so you can be on the lookout for trouble.

Tim,

Your so right that experience is the best teacher and I also believe that a person can learn from close calls . I know we have all had enough of them .

Adrian ,

Cheryl has also taken the beginners riding course years ago and then a few years ago she took the advanced riding course . I know she has learned from the courses and like I said is very cautious and confident and I'm proud of her , but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if she decided some day to give it up and ride with me . At least that way { God Fobid } if we were in a terrible accident hopefully we would both survive or both die together and one of us wouldn't have to home to an empty house .
I know it sounds horrible either way , but if anything ever happened to her knowing that I condoned what she was doing , I couldn't bare it . Man , I got to get out of this house . Come on Daytona .

Jack,
Maybe it's time for Cheryl to take the MSF Experienced Rider Course again to brush-up on her skills...and BLOW SOME MINDS by doing it on THE BOSS!!!!!!!! :D

I did the experienced rider course two or three years ago on my 502 and the instructors said I couldn't "graduate" until I did a burnout for them. It was great to put a loooooonnnngg stripe on the DMV parking lot!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

After Sturgis a couple of years Cozaey flue back to Idaho and met me in the Motor Home. I had her bike so we stayed in Idaho Falls and rode all over Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and every place we could. We would go till we were tired the get a room, but what a blast. The one thing she said to me was the people in these states were so nice. They wouldn't run up behind you, follow close and were in general just polite not like the people out here. If you get her in an area like that it will sure builds a lot of confidence.
