    Still don't see too many women riders in the wild. Where are they hiding? Are they just hanging out at the HD dealerships?

    My daughter on her Vegas. She's not around here much. She can definitely be found out on the road when she's not working. IMG_20180512_111107354.jpg

    My wife has her own bike. Is an older Vulcan 800. I'm working on getting her into a bigger bike. She's capable and totally ready to handle it. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Honda Fury or maybe a Yamaha Stryker or Raider.

    All good looking machines that would fit the bill.

    Is this true females, men transitioning to female, men identifying as female, or possibly a combination?

    There are many options now days so I'm just trying to understand the situation fully.

    Have you considered that true strength is not in oppression but empowerment of the oppressed? Who are the strongest men in history, the slave owners or the men that freed them? I would look at figured like Ghandi, Jesus, or America’s own founding fathers that stood for those who couldn’t otherwise stand for themselves and say that is true strength. Men today aren’t getting weaker, they’re getting stronger which is why we see more women exploring the fun and freedom of things like motorcycles. They’re more free today than they used to be.
