Interesting video. And for sure one off a million woman with some special skills. But never would let my wife ride my bike like this >:)
There are a few gals around my neck of the woods that can handle a wing and an HD quite well.

I don't know how some guys can doubt the motorcycle riding skills of women nowadays...

Hey! women are now free to commit the same crimes as men, fight in the same stinking war as men, and all together make a jerk out themselves just like men.

Its called Women Liberation Freedom.

...why folks, them Saudi guys can't even hold back from driving a car anymore.

...I can see some of you guys have never had a daughter!...that's where that macho crap stops right there.

60 year old male fighting with a 23 year old female with a concealed carry permit.
Sounds justified to me, she certainly feared for her life.
I doubt if LEO's will charge her.
Thank you 2A.....>:)
I'm with ya!

I was talking about the 2018 review video. yea really, I thought it was good from the point of view it was being given by someone who claimed not to be interested in buying one.

Honestly.... I think that simply a Gold Wing is too heavyweight for an average woman.
Farmgal switched from a metric V-twin to a wing because the lower centre of gravity made it easier to handle at parking lot speed and the wider-flatter torque curve makes it much easier to deal with on twisty roads requiring a lot of accel/decel.


The plus for the cruiser was the lower seat height....

You’re right, Farmguy, the handling of a Gold Wing is great. But my wife for example would be scared alone of the size...

Farmgal was too...wouldn't even sit in the driver's seat...

...but after deciding to try it, there was no going back.


All that said, I do agree everyone should only operate what they are comfortable with.

Wow! Catch up man

What a terribly ignorant and sexist comment! You have obviously never been to any competition-type events where there are women who ride circles around both of us.

Weight has nothing to do with it. I submit that center of gravity does, but if you know how to ride, you know how to ride!

I've seen some women that OWNED the much heavier 2nd Gen GW's.

Just sayin'

Why are you so aggressive and offensive? I am not talking about the riding skills of women. Only about the physically fact that women have about 25 % less the muscle mass of a man. And therefore many women are scared to ride such a big machine. My wife is a brave Canadian but would be scared to ride it.

BTW... Are you a member of the „me too“ campaign?:grin2:
