You ask/you answer: Am I safe going to bike meets?

I've just passed my test and have been reading lots of motorcycle websites, mostly interested in the bikes I might buy next. I've noticed that a lot of people commenting seem to be very rude, sexist and angry. I was thinking about going to a bike meet, but as a female I'm not sure I'd feel safe. I want to know if...

My advice would be to avoid retarded forum knobheads who hide behind their ID's. Meet people in the real world and they are far more likely to be normal and less full of shit.

Bike meets

Young lady, if this is not a wind up, then of course you are safe going to bike meets.

You are not alone at such and have the opportunity to meet normal folk who enjoy riding bikes, as indeed I do.

Of course, there are the they who would do you wrong, but as you well know at your age, these exist on every street corner, so, if you really are keen on getting into the bike scene and are not a dick winding us all up, come on down young lady, we all like the girlies and why not!?? The more women I see on a bike the better. I am pleased to see them enjoy what used to be a male only domain. Go for it!

Bill

Avoid !

They are normally full of knob heads sprouting crap about how good a rider they are. Ask yourself this... If they are so good why are they not riding instead of standing in the car park of some scabby pub with a load of easy rider wanabees ? Even worse is joining the local bike group. My local one seem to spend all their time outside the pub eating chips and not riding. I think the thought of actually getting on their bikes and riding somewhere would be totally against their stupid set of rules.
