Hello;
My name is Susan and I just turned 41 years old. I have a 1982 black shovelhead low rider. "It" all started for me when I got impatient with my then boyfriend's ideal of going for a ride. His ideal was to go from bar A to bar B and maybe bar C. That didnt work for me so I started to save up my cash and I bought a 1972 XLCH. I took the safety course on a Honda but dumped my sporty and scared myself. I put it at my dads and considered trading it in for a Honda Rebel but just couldnt bring myself to do it. A few years passed and I got a new man and he encouraged me to ride that Sporty, and ride it I did! I was riding it to a friends house to take it to Daytona Bike week and I blew up the engine. Its still in my living room waiting to be re-assembled, but I didnt want to consider going without a bike for a short riding season up here in Maine so I emptied the bank account on my new (old) low rider. I absolutley love riding it and cant wait for warmer weather to put on more miles. My good friend turned me on to this site and I really dig it. Lookin forward to many good discussions!

Welcome Sue!
I am also 41 and a lady rider. I have a 2000 883 hugger and can totally relate to your comment about "bar bikers". After a crappy winter, I need to ride as much as possible to store it up for the next winter! Post often, this is a really cool site!
