“About 13 years ago, I decided I did not want to be on the back of my husband’s bike, anymore. Shortly after, he bought me my first motorcycle which was a yellow Buell Lightning XB.
I took the safety course, and got a license, dropped her once, got back on, and kept moving forward. Then I was deployed.
Little did I know while I was deployed my nifty little starter bike was being dismantled, parts being used for a custom motorcycle build. Upon my return my husband simply said; “I don’t feel safe having you ride” and that was that.
Well, I’m back and single🙃 as well as the happy owner of my second motorcycle, a 2020 Indian Scout Bobber named Chernyy. Getting back on the road felt like riding a bike, quickly picked it up, it was second nature.
I took another safety course to re-familiarize myself and I am blessed to have the opportunity to ride with an amazing group of women I call family.
Since riding again, I’ve learned that the motorcycle community is a unique one-of-a-kind family that is open to sharing their experiences, knowledge, and recommendations.
There is no better joy than being on those open back roads which my family likes to refer to as our ‘destination to nowhere’ the greatest pleasure I have found since riding again.
Those rare moments when I pull up to a crowd, take off my helmet and see the eyes light up a random little girl as she points and says; “That’s a lady!”
