Hi CU and members

#1 Post by Punkadelix » Wed Mar 27, 2013 11:23 pm

Howdy all!! My name is Elaine and I live in Modesto, been riding for the over 11 years, but I'm looking to get back to riding with a club again. I have an '07 Red/Wht gixxer 600 and is sad because I fail to take him on as much twisties as I used to :(

So it's time for me to strap on those riding boots again and hopefully join ya ladies for a ride. :grin:

Cyaz soon!! ;-)

Hi Elaine! Welcome to the site!
Hope you can make it to our next ride. We'll be doing individual photos of riders and their bikes with a nice background scene of green fields with wildflowers. Perhaps getting out to the twisties will make your Gixer happy and give you a nice photo for your scrapbook too.
:grin:
Hope to see you there.

the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.

Hi and welcome to the forum! Our next ride isn't too far from you, either, so it would be a great chance to get back out there - great roads, beautiful scenery - what more could a girl ask for (well, outside of a track anyways lol!)?

We'd love to have you out, meet you and see your sexy machine :grin:

Welcome. I learned to swim in a canal in Modesto about 55 years ago. What started out to be a kids will be kids turned into a swimming lesson fortunately. I went on to learn to ride a motorcycle and hope to meet you on the next ride. Do you have any feelings one way or the other about people who drive silver Priuses?

Hi and WELCOME!!!

I live in Tracy, kinda close by. So, if you ever want to have coffee and chat or take a little ride let me know. I am usually in this area at least once a week. I hope to see and meet you on our April ride.

If you'd like we can meet of the freeway and you can follow me to the meet spot. Our President also lives in Ripon and I am positive she would like to hook up with you as well.

Have fun!

Hi Anamarie!
I've actually been looking for fellow lady riders here in the valley to have occasional rides with, and I'm so happy to know there are some nearby! I used to ride with the Hooligans, years ago (was a prospect), but under difficult circumstances, had to quit the club. Very big mistake on my part. Anyways, long story short...I'm back. Ha!

Well, I wish I read this sooner, I actually have to be in the Bay on Friday through Sunday morning and then meet everyone at the meeting spot. But for future rides and the occasional coffee chit-chats, lets definitely meet together!

Thanks SO much everyone! Looking forward to the ride...see you all there :grin:
- Elaine

:shock: The canal!? Are you serious! Hahaha, wow...now that's gutsy. It's no wonder you ride ;-)

Now this is funny. As far as silver priuses go, I have no qualms about them...the kind of cars/trucks I do have a tendency to curse at are Acura's and the big 4-wheelers who have mirrors that stick out over a foot long. I mean, really...is it necessary?

Thanks for the laughs!!

Hi Elaine. I'm in Ripon which is a hop, skip, and a jump from Motown. Great to hear you're getting back on two, and please feel free to join any of our group rides or "one-off" treks. We are very female-centric and cater to our lovely ladies, so you're welcome any time.

Hope your schedule changes so you can ride with us next Sunday. It's going to be a blast!
