Calling all Artists- 2009 SF DOB Pride T-shirt Design wanted
Feel Free to Repost!!!

Calling all artists! The Dykes on Bikes® are looking for art for next year’s T-shirt design for the SF LGBT Pride Parade. It’s simple to enter and multiple submissions from the same artist are welcome. Generally our T-shirts are a white design on a black background, but we have done color a couple of times in the past. If you submit a color design, please keep it simple as the cost goes up with more colors/complexity. Go to www.dykesonbikes.org/1_merchandise.html to see some of our past designs. With respect to the design, please include one or any combination of the following elements: a motorcycle, parts thereof, the phrase “Dykes on Bikes®”, or somehow convey the Zen of riding a bike. The SF LGBT Pride Parade theme is "In Order to Form a More Perfect Union…" but your design does not need to incorporate this theme. You can go to the SF Pride website for more info on the theme at: www.sfpride.org/celeb/generalinfo.html

Please also make sure to sign your design, that way everyone who wears the winning selection will know who the artist is. Submit a high-resolution image (jpeg or something similar) to president@dykesonbikes.org by January 31, 2008 and include your email address so we can get in touch with you. Remember that the design needs to fit on the front or back of a T-shirt. There is no cash prize for the winning entry and the design becomes the property of Dykes on Bikes®, but your design will be on hundreds of dykes (and their friends), it will be added to our website, the Dykes on Bikes® will announce the winner on the website and at our parties, and you get a free T-shirt!

Sincerely,

International Women & Motorcycling Conference
The American Motorcyclist Association announced it's first conference dedicated to women held in Athens, GA June 30 - July 3, 2006. Check out www.womenandmotorcycling.com for more info.

In other conference news, the Cycle World International motorcycle show is making stops at many major cites this winter. I find this a good place to try on & compare gear and bikes all in one place. http://show.motorcycleshows.com/IMSBrandManager/v42/index.cvn

so i went to the honda store last week. i wanted to look at a honda nighthawk but they didn't have one there. instead he showed me a honda rebel. he said that i would be better off with the rebel because it's heavier & will stick to the road better. he tried to talk me out of both the nighthawk & the rebel & into getting a shadow instead. i sat on the shadow & it just felt too big & heavy. i felt intimidated by it. the rebel fit just right. he said it would be dangerous to get the rebel out on the highway if i'm not an experienced driver because big trucks driving by me & wind blowing might make me lose control since it's such a light bike. he also said he wouldn't suggest putting someone on the back of it.

so, what do y'all think of this? was he just trying to sell me a more expensive bike or are these legitimate concerns?

i just feel like the rebel will be a better first-time bike. but what do y'all think?

i'm planning on enrolling in a motorcycle safety course within the next couple of weeks so maybe that will help me with my decision.

New member:
There was already a dykes on bikes community here: dykes_on_bikes that I had created a while ago, but I guess more the merrier!

I'll join anyhow :)

I am a 21 queer female, from BC, Canada..
I own at 2004 Honda Jazz scooter and have already put 4500km on it since last June. I ride it almost daily (usually just to/from work), so far all year round.

I love it! I spend anywhere from $3.55-$4.00 to fill the tank, every 2-3 weeks.. a huge money saver.

Take care!

Charity Rides
So...last weekend I did my first ever charity ride event. It's called the Dare to Dream Ride and it raised over $16,500 for ovarian cancer research! And...it was alot of fun too. I have seen several posters and flyers for different rides over the years but never took the initiative to get involved- a mistake on my part. It's a great way to meet new people, discover new roads and feel good about going for a bike ride! What a deal! I got this groovy Victory Motorcycle T-shirt, free coffee and donuts and a meal after the ride- and I won a door prize too!
I would recommend participating in events like this to everyone. Even though I was there on my ST1000 sport touring bike and just about everyone else was on cruisers, there was no attitude- just friendly vibes.
My next charity ride is May 29th- the 8th Annual B.A.D (Bikers Against Distress) Ride where 100% of the $ raised goes to support distress centres across Ontario (http://www.thebadride.com/index.shtml ) Should also be alot of fun...I've raised $45.00 so far...hope to beat my $100 for the last ride.

A cool link to a woman rider in the Ukraine...
I can't remember how I found this link..it might have been through one of the ST1100 sites I read. Whatever the case this is one trippy site about a woman who rides thru the nuked town of Chernobyl on her bike. There are also links to her other site where she journals about rides around the Ukraine countryside with friends to old war sites! She recently added a site with short stories. Check it out!

Ok, I ride a 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1600. Will be riding it for the 2nd year in the Denver Pride Parade. I live, obviously, in Denver. Work as a 911 specialist, so riding is a great outlet. I'm 34, butch, into about anything that catches my attention long enough, educated, goofy and that's all I can think of right now.
