Here is a fast electric lady.
Some women sure have greater skills and credibility than others.
How many caught this bicycling news the other week? Pretty impressive at 184 mph!
Here is a fast electric lady.
Pretty neat. Two records set with out have to change any spark plugs.
Another accomplished woman although she has a crew to change her plugs.
Current holder of woman's speed record had a recent crash down under.
Don't let it be said just because one woman's credibility is currently questionable that it means all women must lose respect. The winners outnumber the losers.
Sliding a mile, that's an eternity. Glad she's okay

And I thought coming off my short track bike was exciting.
"...Don't let it be said just because one woman's credibility is currently questionable that it means all women must lose respect..."
Fred, which woman racer's credibility is questionable?
I don't know Valerie but I do know this very interesting bike and Denis Manning, owner/designer, etc. of the bike...all 1st class. Manning is a real character!
Former riders Rocky Robinson & Chris Carr, also tops. Am I forgetting one?
I've seen the bike run several times at B'ville...everything 1st class and professional! And f-a-s-t!
Anybody who straps into these 3-4-500 MPH monsters has "bigly" brass balls...and are my heroes!

and wad up my bike somethin' awful...
Still, I rise!

I am making an allusion to current US politics and Dr. Ford's testimony of alleged sexual misconduct of a high school boy when she was in college at a time and place she cannot remember. Liberal media talking heads are implying that all women's current and future credibility will suffer if we don't take her unsubstantiated testimony at face value today. This is a big power struggle to influence the flavor of our Supreme Court for decades to come.
I know political discussions are supposedly not allowed here but figured most of you could read between the lines and know that the fate, and respect, of all women is not dependant on a single women being believed or not.

If Dr. Ford strapped into one of those 3-4-500 MPH monsters would you respect her?
If she told the truth sure.
However she claims she is claustrophobic and afraid of flying so might do better riding an open naked bike rather than a streamliner.
