Not to butt my male opinion in where it isn't wanted, but it seems that men are more willing to, LoL, "manhandle" the bike. We will force the bike to do what we want, pushing it a lot harder, and forcing it through turns.
Watching the ladies from my Aunt's and Uncle's club they are more likely to let the bike do it's thing. It isn't a more relaxed attitude, it's more of a willingness to work WITH the bike, instead of forcing the bike to conform to the riders wishes.
I know I've always manhandlesed mine...
I could not disagree more with your observation. I have a woman that I work with that practically wallpapers her office in Moto GP. I was instantly in love
and asked if she rode. The next day I went to lunch with her. She rode her Suzuki GSXR and definatly knew how to make it purr. She was blowing through the corners NICELY! Later at lunch I was invited to attend the track with her. She pays track fees every weekend and can really beat the "crumb" out of all the men out there (
Including me) Mabey that is why she can beat all of us. Because she doesn't manhandle it.
I think you just agreed with me...
