Girls ---> horses ---> motorcycles

#1 Post by karayzieho » Thu Apr 13, 2006 11:53 am

Okay, I never thought about this before, so I might be stating the obvious...

Girls ---> horses ---> motorcycles? So many similarities! Yeah, I was one of those horse worshipping pre-teens, fa sho. Being on a horse, I just felt so free and powerful, and I'm finding so many of those old feelings welling up inside every time I gaze upon my very own, um, steel horse, haha. Mom and Dad, you never bought me a pony, so now look what gone and I did! ;)

Kinda dorky. But true. You don't always feel so free, as "just a girl in the world," until you've got a powerful beast between your legs and you're flying, faster than the wind...

Sorry for being such a cheeseball. Just an excited new rider over here. :)

I never wanted a pony, but I've ALWAYS wanted a motorycle. Believe me, I share your enthusiasm. ;)



...but then again, I'm not a girl either. lol

Christie , what you've just described is why the motorcycle has been nicknamed the "iron horse"

Forsure . I was in love with riding horses all through my 'younger yrs.'

Same sense of freedom on the bike. Fortunately .... not the same unpredictability under your body....

It's the 'drivers' that are unpredictable.... specially those guys that feel they have something to prove when they realize it's a 'chick' on a bike.

Absolutely! I get the same feeling on my bike that I used to get on my horse when I barrelraced! And I made sure the lil girl got some horse riding time in too, even though I no longer have a horse.

Maybe I can talk her into taking up dirt biking. Gotta pass the torch!

Don't put a saddle on a horse that can't be tamed. There's something beautiful about a free spirit.

Just don't let the bike lay down to rest after a rain the way those durned horsies always seem to do-racked out on their sides looking all wrong.

After riding for the first time this past weekend I totally hear you! I miss having Billy (my TB mare) but the feeling you have on a bike is amazingly similar...freedom of movement and sense of speed...minus having to clean poop, feed hay, brush, etc that comes with horse ownership. HA! And it tickled me silly how sitting on a bike and turning is sooooo the same as sitting on a horse and turning...using head and hips to go where you want to go.

I was just wondering if you called it quits for the winter. Obviously not and you're "doing great." You probably never heard of Tony the Tiger. East Bay Motor Sports has Alpine Star cold weather gloves for 7.95. They are on Foothill Blvd in Hayward.
