I often ride alone. But I joined the Chrome Divas a few years ago. It's a national organization, with chapters all over. Our chapter is VERY active, so I can do lots of Girl Riding!

Welcome! I get to commute by bike 2-3 times a week depending on the weather. On weekends Hubby and I have started going for rides. It is still VERY new for me and I am still totally in the "beginner" group but I am loving it and learning and becoming more confident with every trip. After Hubby installs my crash guard I am going to practice some of the drills they taught in the BRC. I have been hesitant to try the figure 8 with my Yamaha Vstar yet. emoticon

Response to women who ride alone:
I do, mostly I commute. I don't belong to a group or anything, mostly because there isn't any here for scooters. My hobby is photography, so I love the days when I can get out and scoot n' shoot! Hubby keeps saying he's going to get his license, but he hasn't yet.
Anyway, way to go to all us gals who get out there and ride!

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who matter won't mind and those who mind don't matter.

Isn't that cool!?! I love having that option! Two weekends ago I rode on back when we went to dinner. It was the first time in two or three years I'd ridden with him.

I ride alone most of the time on my Harley Sportster. It is my every day transportation.

But sometimes my wife wants to come along, and when she does, she either drives her Suzuki, or she rides with me on the big Yamaha Venture heavy cruiser. It depends on how she feels.

Rob rides but not a lot because he's busy. I ride by myself most of the time on the way to work or whatever. There are a lot of guys here at work who are active riders and I'm welcome to join them but usually have a conflicting plan.

I think I'm the odd case. Hubby rides, but when he does, I ride as a passenger on his. When he doesn't ride, that's when I take mine out.
I've been riding with my dad, mostly, although some of our guy friends have been wanting me to go ride with them.

Welcome, Judy, from another Floridian.

But I spent quite a bit of time in Central California and still have a lot of relatives out there. I worked at Vandenburg for 7 years.

Where in Central California are you from?

Welcome from IL. I'm still getting in the groove, myself, but I got my license 3 years ago! Hubby does ride, but has been "in a mood" and not wanting to go riding, so I bought my own 500cc Honda this year. :-)

WELCOME FROM TEXAS!
That is so cool that you went out and started riding yourself. emoticon
That is similar to how I ended up riding. My hubby doesn't ride, but I grew up with my dads "toys" so we always had bikes, dune buggies, vw's. 4x4's. A couple of years ago my little brother got a "crotch rocket" and I thought to myself "I want to go riding again". So I got a little 150cc scooter, but before a year was up I needed more power and now have a Suzuki Burgman 650, one of the biggest scooters on the market.
Anyway, Welcome and ride safe!

Hi, my name is Judy. I use to ride with my X when I was a teenager and had so much fun. I just took the class with my daughter and received my motorcycle license. My husband does not ride so I usually do all my riding to and from work. I really started riding on a regular basis about a month ago and love it. I am still in the learning stages but love the feel of riding again. Can't wait to get to know everyone and learn from you all!
