Saw these vintage Hondaline boots (item 230938582513) on ebay and thought of you, Motolady! Too darn small for me!! Tim v/h
Thanks for that. I kept your awesome tip all to myself and won them! 🙂
Since I don’t personally know much about this bike, I can only go off what I read in the specs I found online (such as on bikez.com). It’s a petite and light weight bike- 360 lbs dry (without fluids and gas) and has a low seat height of 27.5 inches… with an optional low profile seat that takes it down another two or so. These two things are going to make it a comfortable bike for someone with a shorter inseam, and also light enough that it won’t feel too cumbersome to… Continue Reading »
Hii I’m in need of your assistance!!! My name is Leah, and I am thinking about purchasing a ninja kawasaki for myself but i dont know if it’ll be too big for me. its a 2004 and i am around 5’4 and weight around 120-125 lbs. would this be a smart buy for a petite girl like me? hope to hear from ya. thx!!
Firstly, what is your prior motorcycling experience? What engine displacement / size are we talking… 250cc? A lot of it depends on your skill level and comfort level. Hannah Johnson (~5’3”) rides a Hypermotard with an exceptionally high seat height (33.3”). She literally jumps onto the bike as it takes off. For her, size has little to do with it. You can make changes in the bike (seat, suspension, etc) to bring it down a little bit so you can put your feet more firmly on the ground. Ninja’s are pretty light… Continue Reading »
Hey, cool lady biker :) i too live to ride and spanner, i would love one of your t-shirts but live across the pond, will you ship ? how much ? May the wind behind you always be your own xx
Howdy there! Yes, I can ship overseas. Leave a comment on this post with your contact, or send me an email at email@example.com so we can get it worked out! Thanks for writing. 🙂
What is your favorite brand of helmet? I have an open face bell helmet. Not super happy with the fit. I would love to hear your suggestions.
I don’t personally support the wearing of open-face helmets, so I don’t have any experience to draw from. Sorry! In a nutshell, I suggest full face helmets because of this diagram. This illustrates the areas which take the impact in accidents. That being said, I’m sure some folks out there have opinions for you!
Haha, no. I kind of wish I had though!
Definitely this one, “Motorcycles Saved my Life.”
Dear Motolady, I’m a new rider. My husband (outta the blue) bought me a motorcycle in September. I’m loving my bike, but I don’t get to ride as much as I’d like, but when I peruse your site, I fall more in love with riding. Thank you. Sorry if this was sent twice.
Aw, wow! What an awesome gift to get out of the blue! You are a very lucky woman… give that man a high five for me! Thank you for writing… I’m glad I can help stir up some of that motorcycling passion for you. One way to do it yourself is to ride more, though. 🙂 Go for a ride the way you feel comfortable… even if just around your neighborhood sometimes. When I first got my bike, I’d go for five mile jaunts after I got home for work since something… Continue Reading »
