Hi there from Australia

I just became a rebel 500 owner after years on a Yamaha XV535.

This is my bike:

Welcome from Long Beach California. Being the father of 4 daughters and grandfather to 7 granddaughters, I love your style. (That is if you're a girl - if not I have 2 grandsons so I still love your style.)

Hi Gary,

I was a girl once, long time ago.

Are you a boy?

That was a joke. My bike doesn't really look like that.

this is how my bike really looks:

It is sort of sad that you guys really thought I was serious.

I did it as a joke because I am thoroughly sick of grown adult women being treated as if they were 8 yo girls.

When I bought my boots they were available with pink bits on them. Needless to say I bought the black/white ones even though the pink ones (same model and brand) were on sale (probably because there aren't very many 8 yo girls riding motor bikes).
I managed to buy a light grey jacket without pink bits on them only to find out later that is has "venus" written on the back. What the ****? Do you have "cupid" written on your jacket?
And I can't even remove it as it's not stitched on but some sort of rubbery print that won't come off without destroying the fabric.

Male gear does not come in powder blue with little trucks on it does it?

When mentioned that I have a motorbike I get asked if I have a licence, when I wanted to buy gloves the salesperson (female!) asked me if I was riding or a passenger... (well, at least she assumed that it was possible that I ride myself ).
As if that mattered if I ever scrape down the road on my palms and knees (again) anyway.
I was putting some ratchet and socket set out the driveway with a "free" sign on it (cos I bought a new one the day before) and my neighbour asked me why *insert husbands name* was putting them out.
Uuuuhhhmm hello? It's me doing that. My husband is neither in sight nor has he anything to do with that socket set except for that we both use it.

Sorry for the rant but it's these almost daily things men never have to put up with that make women fell angry and tired and wonder if we still live in the 50s.
