Me My Buddies – Harley & Ryder My Softail Slim
Well – the simple answer is – because I think there are women out there like me who want to be able to dialogue, learn, share tips and – there’s always room for that because female motorcycle riders are GROWING group! That is a fact.
I did not learn to ride a motorcycle until I was 59 years old and – I so afraid. I had wanted nothing to do with motorcycles; was never interested; well, until my husband bought this beautiful, red Harley Heritage. It was so beautiful that I instantly wanted him to take me for a ride. I fell in love with riding but, because of my husband’s diabetes, it was very difficult for him to have a passenger – I weigh more than 50lbs!!! So, I took the beginners class and quite literally “passed by the skin of my teeth” – a quote from my instructor. I bought a scooter – a Honda Burgman. I didn’t want to have to think about shifting because I thought I was going to die every time I rode and it took all my concentration just to keep the fear from keeping at home.
