    How does a guy meet one of You...

    Hello,All!
    I'm reading lots of posts from lots of GREAT people here on the MOA forum...
    And it's really refreshing to see that there is a section here on the MOA devoted to The Ladies!
    My question is...I'm a single guy,41 yrs old...single Dad..and would just LOVE to meet a nice lady to ride with!
    As a passenger,or if She had Her own bike,that would be even better!
    So...I'm here in the West County area of St Louis...Where are all the riding girls in STL hiding??
    Would love to hear something!

    Ummm, out riding by themselves or with friends; out riding with the local club; riding at local track days; hanging out at the dealer?

    Good luck!

    I'm not in STL and if I was... I wouldn't mind going for a ride.

    LOL! I'd love to ride with you cmannie but my husband would have to come along. Hope you find someone to ride with out your way. Have you looked into bike clubs? I'm always telling my single girlfriends to join the local kayak and biker clubs.
    So far, they have not listened.

    In my younger days there weren't nearly as many riders so the comunity was tighter and we knew many of the local riders, some of which included women, though much fewer than today. back then we meet (and dated) simply because there were so many less of us (riders)..

    now adays its a bit differant..

    I met my better half 11 years ago by posting in Yahoo Personals. Rather than a list of "must have's" I simply mentioned my likes and dislikes and that I was looking for someone who also enjoyed some of the same things, one of the main being motorcycle riding. She saw the post, had just started riding, liked my post (even saw my picture and Still answered, go figure??) and the rest is, as they say, history..

    No trick to it, just be honest and open and don't list a bunch of "demands" as in "you must like this or be like that" (which would turn off anyone looking for an honest relationship), just talk about yourself, your likes, your loves, your fears.

    I know several couples who met that way.. and not on paid dating sites either.

    Go to the MOA Rally in Redmond and attend the Women Who Ride Seminar. That'd be a good place to start. Or join the Gateway Riders. Or go on the next charity ride that pops up locally.

    Paul!
    I'm shocked! The Women Who Ride seminars should never be posited as a place to troll for women! We are serious riders! But, hey! I tell my single women friends to come to our weekly coffee meetings cause you never know!
    Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.

    He wouldn't be "trolling" for women. He's looking for "a nice lady to ride with!"

    We don't do that on the Women of the MOA section of the forum.

    Got it?

    Yahoo Personal is a paid site now... all those type of sites that use to not be a paid site are anymore... even if it says free... one is very limited to what you can do just to get you in to make you pay in order to access information. And if you pay for one of the sites, still the outcome hasn't been successful... not for me anyways. I just do not understand... It's not easy to find someone... I'm trying and still have no luck.

    Volunteer at an All Women's Event - just don't lurk at one

    I am Laughing! I have men on waiting lists to volunteer for our Women's Riding School each and every year. They will do anything to help out. But the rule is, no fraternizing with the gals while they are in school. They are there to LEARN, not to pick up guys. What might happen after school is over is another thing.. but during school - its all about the ride.

    Besides, they will think it so sweet that you came out to help.
    Who wouldn't!
    Riders are all T H E best.

    Should I put you on our waiting list?

    You'll find your riding partner soon.
