CrystalBystal~no worries.

Sadly though, there were a number of girls in the class who agreed. Regarding the safety issue, I asked if they'd get a on a bike behind their guy, and they were quick to say yes. ~shrug~ Go figure.

society still pushes a "women cook, men work" image, and its hard for people to stand up and break past their own barriers.

Frankly I think people need to grow up. if I was in that class, I would have started calling out.

(but just my luck someone would have said some like "well why dont you teach a girl on your bike sorry, I dont even belive myself that much...I mean, Im not gonna let anyone learn how to ride on a RC51)

yea, but, im not trying to hit on them, so I dont need to risk my $800 plastics for "some chick"

You can try to teach them all you want, get a 50cc dirt bike, but if they dont WANT to learn, and dont pay attention, then it wont happen.
Ive tried to teach both male and female things before(not just pertaining to bikes, anything), and I took my time explaining, and they didint want to wait they just wanted to go right at it.

Like as an example, I tried teaching a friend how to ride my old 250, but when he realized I was going to take my time explaining, and had no intrest to sit around and hear my talk, and listen on how to take steps, he said "ahh, this is too hard and boring, here have it back.

People have no initiative these days.

wow, we got quite a few literary type chics here. not bad!!!

and naah, i dont think women are any worse off then men when it comes to motorcycles. however, those folks do have a point, becuase women, in general, do have umm... lets say some different areas of strength when it comes to driving. check out this link:
http://christianparty.net/womendrivers.htm

i m no MCP.. but its a fact that women and men have different brain structures. to put in layman's terms, men have a stronger logical brain and women have a stronger emotional brain. why else do u think we suck at understanding ur emotions

all things equal..i think guys are, for the most part, safer than women.

howver, things are not equal....guys feel the need to show off more and put themselves in more dangerous and idiotic situations= more wrecks.

they are more aggressive, and statistically, the more stupid you put yourself in, the higher the risk of wrecks....

Now that would be great to see haha. One of the best female riders I have ever seen on the road, and even had the privilege to ride with during an all female ride was nutmegchoi....now SHE can ride not only on the streets, but she's been known to school a few men on the track as well .

One demonstration by her would be all it takes.

Guys do show off a lot, you don't see girls doing wheelies or stoppies in front of starbucks. the only reason guys would probably be safer is because ya'll are naturally bigger and have more muscle tone. I'm 5'4", and I'll tell you reaching the ground is in itself a challenge for me sometimes.

Testosterone levels make the difference.
