I've just registered after finding this site come up in a Google search for some info I needed on my Versys. Figured that if I'm going to need info on my machine, I should be able to ask other riders of the same bike.

I passed my riders' test just under 3 months ago and this is my first big bike. I tried and failed to do the course last year and was made to feel like I was some kind of idiot and what was I thinking trying to ride a motorcycle?? I had big, burly male instructors rolling their eyes at me and speaking to me in baby tones. It was awful!

Yes, I'm female. I'm going to ask what are probably very stupid questions. And yes, I know nothing more than checking my bike's oil levels and tyre pressure. But I would appreciate it if the big male attitude stays out of sight!

:cheers:

:welcome: This site has been around for over five years so a quick search probably will at least get you a ballpark answer, and you can always ask.

Hi frosty from a fellow Brit....:welcome:

What a shame your "burly" (maybe fat?;)) 'bike instructors are a set of w*nkers!!!:(

Anyway, you'll find that gender is not a requisite for stupidity, it's a trait that anyone can attain without trying hard at all!!!:eek::confused::p

You have got over the biggest hurdle by being brave enough to "bare" yourself on an unfamiliar website like this one, but unlike your "burly" British male instructors, you will be treated as an equal & given respect on here.:thumb:

I ride with a group out here in California and we have quite a few female riders that ride harleys up to gold wings. They are a valuable part of our group. (Plus they always smell nice) :D:D:D

Although I would not call the Versys a boring bike, let's face it, most of it's riders kinda are....

No one has won a GP race or performed gravity defying stunts on a one
No Hollywood celebrity has ever been photographed by the paparazzi on one
Cruiser riders show their rebellious nature by adorning their bikes with pictures of skulls, flames and installing outrageously high and uncomfortable handle bars, Versys riders do it by wearing socks with their sandals
Versys tattoos have never been popular
There has never been a police chase of a Versys posted on youtube
Unlike Harley Davidson, the Versys has never received endorsements from groups like the Hells Angels, Banditos, Satans Choice or the Republican Party
Versys riders rarely accessorize their boring riding attire with stylish leather fringed, chrome or skull/flame emblazoned fashion accessories
The Versys has no real social caché - unless affixed with BMW or Harley tank decals
Perhaps it is because the Versys is not particularly shiny

What ever the reasons you will find most Versys riders are dull, boring, middle of the road, reasonably politically correct folk who simply like to ride motorcycles.
