Default It's a conundrum...

You would think that a woman who rides a motorcycle would be tough (in a good way, not a trashy way), independent, and not afraid of a little give-and-take. Yet apparently, most are easily frightened off by male jocularity or pictures of nice(r?)-looking women, while the remainder get all scoldy-like. Amazing that they've made the progress they have...

Wait, I have to take some of this back - there are many females on the forums at ducatimonster.org who seem to get along fine without fainting away or wagging their fingers. But it's not as - um - "bracing" an environment as the old MO, so that may be an unfair comparison.

C'mon, ladies, don't be scared. And don't be Mom. Take this Women Riders forum for yourselves, and in other forums, just hang out, have a beer, shoot the breeze and chill. Be yourselves and let the boys be boys.

I'm far from "scared". I'm telling you straight up that the "MO Babes" stuff is tasteless and juvenile. Sounds to me like you can't take much criticism, Mr. Schizuki. If you want to be an immature wanker, there are plenty of porn sites on the 'net where you can get your jollies - I hear these days you can even open TWO BROWSER WINDOWS!!! so you can look at nekkid women while you're looking at MO too -- but I'll continue to use the whole site, thank you.

It's up to MO what kind of site they want to have, but I'm making MY voice heard, and I'm not going to let a twerp like you tell me where I can play. Jeezus crist.

Default hmmm....

I don't think some of you guys realize how tiring stuff like "MO Babes" is. If I'm perusing easy rider...then I will expect the porn presentation of motorcycling and I'm not trying to get rid of it. With MO though....when I signed up that stuff was nowhere to be readily found and I really liked that.

I can handle the bad behavior in the forums and am certainly not telling people what to do...all I was saying that if the new format had been the first thing I saw and saw MO Babes...I would not have paid for a subscription because it would be essentially telling me "This site is not for you."

I'm sure the MO Babes offends some and some dig it. It's a matter of opinion and there isn't a 'right and wrong' issue here. I do agree that Schizuki is a twerp. Good observation there.
